Szechuan-Style Beef

Szechuan-Style Beef with Blistered Shishito Peppers and Green Beans

Craving takeout tonight? We’ve got you covered. Our version of this Chinese dish starts by searing green beans and shishito peppers (a small, slender, sweet variety) in sesame oil until lightly charred. It’s served with ground beef cooked down in a hoisin-soy sauce with ginger, scallions, and a little Szechuan pepper (adding a floral, slightly tingly note without the fiery heat). All together, this bowl of sweet, savory, umami goodness will make it easy to skip delivery.
