- 8 ounces of ground pork
- 8 oz. of dried spaghetti
- 5 cloves of chopped garlic
- 1 chopped scallion
- 1-3 fresh or dried red chilis
- ⅓ cup of chopped peanuts (optional)
- ¼ cup of oil
- 2 tablespoons of Lao Gan Ma Black Bean Chili Sauce
- 2 tablespoons of Shaoxing wine
- 2 tablespoons of finely minced ginger
- ½ teaspoon of Sichuan peppercorn powder (optional)
- 1 tablespoon of soy sauce
- ½ teaspoon of sugar
- ½ teaspoon of white pepper
- ½ teaspoon of sesame oil
- A handful or two of any leafy green vegetable (bok choy, spinach, choy sum, napa cabbage)
- Heat a quarter cup of oil in a wok over moderate heat, then add the peppers. Allow the oil to steep with the peppers for a full minute. For an extra cooking time, throw in some minced ginger and Sichuan peppercorn powder.
- After 30 seconds, stir in the garlic mince. Finally, stir in the ground pork. Break up large chunks and continue stirring until the food is cooked. Following that, pour in 2 tablespoons of Shaoxing wine, 1/2 teaspoon of sugar, 1/2 teaspoon of white pepper, 1 tablespoon of soy sauce, and 1/2 teaspoon of sesame oil. Next, pour in 2 ounces of the black bean hot sauce. Just give it a quick stir and cook for a minute.
- After the spaghetti is done cooking, toss in the peanuts, scallions, and greens and increase the heat to high. Just a few minutes of stir-frying will do to warm them up. Combine by quickly stir-frying, so the spaghetti doesn’t stick to the pan. Allow the vegetables to cook until they are wilted but still crisp.
