MAKE THIS SAUCE AHEAD OF TIME AND LET IT SIMMER UNTIL THICK
Combine in saucepan:
2 teaspoons vegetable oil
1/2 teaspoon ground Sichuan pepper (Sichuan pepper is the powder you have
after you roast and grind the peppercorns.)
8 to 10 dried red chilies
3 scallions, white and green parts separated, thinly sliced
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 teaspoon minced or grated fresh ginger
Saute these together to develop flavor, then add
1 tablespoon Chinese black vinegar, or substitute good-quality balsamic vinegar
1 teaspoon soy sauce
1 teaspoon hoisin sauce
2 teaspoons sugar
1 teaspoon cornstarch dissolved in 1 teaspoon water
Simmer sauce over medium heat until it thickens. Set aside to add at the end.
