I cheat and use store bought sichaun sauce. If you don't want to buy duck sauce, you can use honey instead - it's how I make my sichaun beef! —Ben Pagel
sunflower oil (or any vegetable oil)
diced portobello mushrooms
diced white onion
diced orange bell pepper
dry roasted unsalted peanuts (or any nut you want)
sichaun sauce (I use House of Tsang Szechuan Spicy Stir Fry Sauce)
duck sauce (I don't know what brand - they usually only have one kind at the store anyway)
chopped green onion tops
head of bibb lettuce
In This Recipe
Heat the sunflower oil in a pan over medium heat. Sautee the mushrooms, white onion, pepper, and peanuts until they're as soft as you like them. I generally wait until the onion is translucent and then cook about 2 more minutes for good measure.
Add the sichaun and duck sauces. Simmer for 2-3 minutes, just so the sauces can incorporate into the other ingredients.
Once everything is combined, add the green onions. They're better with a fresh, uncooked flavor.
Separate the bibb lettuce leaves and use as bowls for spoonfuls of the mushroom mixture. Enjoy!
