Let’s just begin by saying I am seriously putting up my hands to say this Sichuan Beef has to be one of the tastiest meals I have ever tasted!

Two of the funniest things about that are, firstly I am not a huge “steak” consumer because I am not exactly the biggest fan of beef. So for me to rate this so highly is just a huge surprise to me.

 

The second reason I find this a funny moment of blogging a recipe is the fact that I actually wrote this recipe more than 12 months ago, without any testing just a simple style sauce that I thought would work with some thin slivers of beef and vegetables. I seriously cannot believe that I have been sitting on this recipe all this time and it tastes so amazeballs!

Sichuan Beef Origin

Sichuan cuisineSzechwan cuisine, or Szechuan cuisine originates from the Sichuan Province in China.  It is basically hot fiery pungent and bold flavours including ingredients like garlic and chilli.  This Sichuan Beef gets the hit of chilli and spice from fresh chilli, sriracha, white pepper and a wee bit of garlic.  The use of butter and a mild fusion of nut butter, sesame oil, five spice and tamari help create the umaminess of hoisin or oyster sauce in this recipe.

How good can Sichuan Beef be?

Today I made this Sichuan beef recipe when a friend and fellow keto follower popped around for a quick bite on a busy day.  Seeing her take her first mouthful, then groan, close her eyes and drop her shoulders instantly made me break out my fork to test this most photogenic dish.  I fell in love!  Not with Kris but with the plateful of food.

  1. I want to see your efforts on FB or hear about them here. This is one recipe everyone should try!

    1. Thanks Megan for a delicious recipe I’ll definitely be making it again. So yummy!

  2. Thanks Megan for a delicious recipe. I will definitely make this again so full of flavour.

  3. So hard to have a favourite recipe from your collection but this is now one of them..
    An explosion of flavour, quick and loved by all who tried it. Thanks for such delicious meals .. definitely one that will be made over and over

  4. Sensational. Will be definitely making again. So nice to have 1st stir-fry in 12 months of Keto.

  5. Sensational. Will be definitely making again. So nice to have 1st stir-fry in 12 months of Keto. Couple of things substituted and was still awesome. Thanks Megan

  6. Wow. Just the right amount of spice for me (maybe too much for the kids!) but multiplied by 4 and thought there was too much liquid. Never fear, I trusted Megan and it was fabulous. Another winner.

  7. Oooooh yum – this one was a winner with everyone.
    Only question the ingredients say broccolini, but the directions say broccoli – I used broccoli, but will try it with broccolini next

  8. Just polished off a bowl of this! My husband said quote “man this is yum. Better than the shop! Salty and sweet…easy 10/10”.

    1. I love this recipe too Mikhalla, thanks for the 10/10 lol

  9. Looks awesome but is it really 1000 calories?? Seems strange given the ingredients.

    1. It is just the butter and serving size. Reduce or split it (it is a huge serve) and the calories will come down

  10. Hi,
    Just wondering which Sriracha this calls for? I googled and there seems to be a powder and a sauce type?
    Also do you use a particular brand of shaoxing wine please?

    1. I just use the sauce there is even a no sugar variety available in Coles.

      1. great thank you 🙂
