Szechuan Noodles

Chopstick Cinema

This Month's Film: Balzac and the Little Chinese Seamstress
Cuisine: Chinese

In addition to bits of pork, this spicy noodle dish features an interesting array of vegetable ingredients, including water chestnuts and baby corn. The sauce is sweetened with a little sugar and spiced with Szechuan peppercorns to create a dynamic balance of flavors.

The recipe will be posted at the end of the month, along with my ‘Balzac and the Little Chinese Seamstress’ film review.
