115 g minced pork
1 packet of silken tofu (cut into large 1-inch cubes)
3 tbsp Sichuan spicy bean paste
1 tbsp Sichuan peppercorns (roasted and finely ground)
½ cup chicken stock
1 tsp fermented black beans (rinsed and pounded)
2 stalks spring onions (chopped into 2 cm lengths) - substitute with leeks
2 cloves garlic (chopped)
1 pc 2½ cm ginger (peeled and chopped)
2 tbsp vegetable oil
½ tbsp sesame oil
1 tbsp soy sauce
2 tbsp cornstarch
2 tbsp water
| For the tofu, look for packets labeled “Silken Tofu for frying”. This ensures that your tofu won’t fall apart as much when frying.
Garnish with spring onions and serve hot with rice.
