The cuisine of China’s Xinjiang Province (in the Northwest region of the country) is famous for its use of bold flavors. Certain areas were influenced by Middle Eastern cuisines, and cumin became a popular spice in many local dishes. Here, we’re using an incredibly delicious cumin and Sichuan peppercorn sauce to coat our beef and rice noodle stir-fry. Sichuan peppercorns are an essential Chinese ingredient. Bursting with citrusy, aromatic complexity, they produce a distinctive, cooling sensation on the tongue, which enhances the flavor of warming spices like cumin. (So if you feel a little bit of tingling, don’t worry!)
