Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups pure peanut oil
  • 1 small onion peeled, trimmed of root and blossom ends, and evenly minced very small
  • 1 large garlic clove peeled and evenly minced very small
  • 1/4 cup roasted salted soy nuts, lightly broken up
  • 2 cups of Chinese Dried Red Chili Peppers or Japones peppers, stems removed, and pulsed to break up in a blender, food processor, or spice grinder
  • 6 dried Guajillo chiles stems removed, and pulsed to break up in a blender, food processor, or spice grinder
  • 1 tablespoon Sichuan peppercorn ground finely
  • 2 tablespoons raw sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt

Instructions

  • Heat the peanut oil to 250°F in a heavy-bottomed 2-quart saucepan. Add the onions and garlic to the oil and cook the mixture, stirring frequently, until the bubbling slows down to almost nothing and the onions and garlic are a light toasted, golden brown colour. Add the lightly broken soy nuts and cook for 1 more minute. Remove from the heat and add in the ground chili peppers, Sichuan peppercorn, and sugar. Let cool to room temperature, uncovered. Stir in salt, transfer to a pint jar with a tight fitting lid.
