    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 (14 ounce) package firm tofu, drained cut into 1 inch cubes
    • kosher salt, to taste
    • 1/2 cup sichuan red chili oil (hong you)
    • 6 garlic cloves, minced
    • 6 inches piece ginger, peeled and minced
    • 6 ounces ground beef or 6 ounces ground pork
    • 4 scallions, thinly sliced plus more for garnish
    • 1 red Thai chile, stemmed and minced
    • 2 1/2 tablespoons chinese red chile bean paste (douban jiang)
    • 1 tablespoon chinese fermented black soybeans (dou chi)
    • 1 1/4 cups chicken stock
    • 1 tablespoon sugar
    • 1 tablespoon light soy sauce
    • 1/4 cup cornstarch, mixed with 6 tbsp water
    • 1/4 teaspoon ground sichuan pepper, for garnish
    • steamed rice, for serving

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Place tofu in a bowl with 3 cups boiling salted water. Let sit 15 minutes. Drain and spread on paper towels to dry; set aside.
    2. 2
      Heat oil in a 14 inch flat-bottomed wok or frying pan over medium-high heat. Add garlic and ginger. Cook until fragrant, about 1 minute.
    3. 3
      Add beef; cook, stirring and breaking up meat, until browned, 4–6 minutes.
    4. 4
      Add chives, chiles, paste, and beans. Cook, stirring, until scallions are wilted, about 2 minutes.
    5. 5
      Add stock and tofu. Bring to a boil, stirring gently, so as not to break up the tofu.
    6. 6
      Add sugar and soy. Cook, stirring, until sugar is dissolved, about 1 minute. While stirring, slowly add cornstarch mixture. Cook until sauce has thickened, about 2 minutes more.
    7. 7
      Transfer to a dish and garnish with scallions and pepper. Serve with rice.
