    Sichuan Province of China is one of the largest province in China, and the home of most savory and spicy food in the world. The most famous Sichuan dish is probably Mapo Tofu, a bold, spicy, and distinctive tofu cuisine. The Sichuan cuisine is famous for its bold combination with Sichuan peppercorn, garlic, peanuts, sesame, ginger, and chili pepper, etc, together they have created more than thousands of delicious dish.

This special beef cuisine perfectly balance the spicy taste of chili pepper and the sweetness of the orange, making it a different choice for everyone who would like to enjoy the Sichuan style cuisine.

      This was excellent! I used just under 2lbs of sliced flank steak for the beef, so I basically doubled the recipe. I threw in some baby Bella mushrooms, too. I didn't have potato starch, so I used 1 tablespoon of cornstarch mixed with an equal measure of cold water, then briefly brought everything back to a boil after mixing the cornstarch slurry in. I also couldn't find any bird's-eye chilies, so I used some Serrano chiles instead. Spicy, savory, tender, and delicious! I made a pot of Chinese-style sticky rice to go with this, and DH and I nearly finished everything! DH happily ate two big platefuls of this, which he only does when he really likes something, so this definitely got his 2 thumbs up, lol. Thanks for posting! Made for PAC Fall '12
