Stir-fries: Er Jing Tiao makes a flavorful and spicy beef with broccoli stir-fry. Or stir up some delicious and mouth-warming kung pao chicken, or tofu fried rice. Feeling adventurous? Dive into a fish-fragrant stir-fry sliver recipe with pork, chicken, or even eggplant.
Braises: the next time you make a mouth-watering slow-braised beef, pork, or chicken, try adding these Sichuan chilis to your pot. They bring out the savory meatiness and add another layer of warm, fruity flavor. Er Jing Tiao chilis also go great with braised root veggies.
Chili oil: Er Jing Tiao is the key ingredient in authentic Sichuan red chili oil.
Bean paste: rehydrate the chilis in a pickling solution for use in fermented chili bean paste that can be stored in the refrigerator and used in many other traditional Chinese recipes like Sichuan poached beef or mapo tofu.
