The flavor of Szechuan (especially that famous sauce!) is so delicious. It’s flavorful and has just the right amount of kick. So naturally, I had to figure out how to produce it at home!

But what is the Szechuan flavor? According to WiseGeek:

Szechuan cuisine features flavors that are found in Szechuan beef. The Sichuan province in the west of China is the home of Szechuan food. Spiciness and rich flavor are hallmarks of Szechuan food, and it aims to bring together salty, bitter, sweet, sour, and pungent flavors.

Delicious. As a result, we all want to make this now. Right?
