Spicy Noodle with Sweet Sichuan Peppercorn Sauce

Spicy Noodle with Sweet Sichuan Peppercorn Sauce

Spicy Noodle with Black Bean and Sweet Sichuan Peppercorn Sauce, inspired by Sichuan cuisine.

The Sichuan foods are famous for their hot, spicy, salty and diverse flavors.  It is the most popular style of food in China. Almost every dish has its own character and unique taste, much of this due to the flavoring and many seasonings.  This includes: Soy sauce, cooking vinegar, sichuan peppercorn , fermented black beans, chili oil, dry chili pepper and sesame oil.

Spicy Sichuan Noodle Recipe


I am quite a big fan of Sichuan food and any cuisine for that matter that has a good dose of spice.  You’ll see that I have a lot of Asian recipes and many of them have a significant amount of heat.  Be forewarned that this dish is quite hot!  If you need to modify for reasons around preference or especially around health then by all means adjust it as needed.  It should still have some other good flavors to carry the taste.  I grew up in a household where we started consuming spicy food at a young age, and it was not only normal to eat such dishes on a regular basis but actually something that we longed for and craved.  Keep an eye on out for more of my recipes (Asian and more) that may make your nose run and eyes water a bit.

Sichuan Peppercorn, also known as Chinese coriander, has a very unique and strong fragrance. They produce a tingling, slightly strange numbing sensation in your mouth.

    This looks amazing. It may be a bit spicy for me so I would have to tone that down. On the other hand my husband loves spice so I just might have to make two batches!

    I do love spicy but it makes that heartburn come on big time. I will have to get my meds because I truly love spicy food and hate that I can’t eat them like I use to. This is different so a must try.

    I also love Sichuan food because of the heat and the strong flavors. I grew up eating Chinese food since we’re a Chinese family living in the Philippines, and we’re lucky to have my mom who’s a good cook. The spicy noodle with sweet Sichuan peppercorn sauce is a classic.

    Yum! This looks so good. Anything with noodles is a win. I’m just wondering if it would be really spicy. I could see myself eating this dish with all sorts of meats, depending on what was left over from the night before.
