I used fewer chilis -- about 8 scaled up -- and still found this to be a fiery dish. It came together quickly and used less oil than stated. I really liked the sauce but felt some of the subtlety was lost in the heat.
This was some fiery stuff! It is delicious, but I will definitely cut back on the heat next time for us. I used far less oil as well. Made for ZWT4.
This was definitely a spicy dish! I did cut back on the oil to 3 Tbs, which was enough in my non-stick skillet. The black bean sauce, chili suace, and black pepper made a tasty combination. I especially enjoyed the cashews and the crunch they added. Those wanting a milder dish could cut back on the dried chilies, chili paste, and/or black pepper. Thanks for posting!
Delicious, i like smoke coming from my ears too :) easy to put together as well.
