    Awesome receipe, plan on making again soon!

    This recipe absolutely hit the craving I was going for, I only made a slight change which was to add a bit of tomato sauce to make it a little less thick. It worked out perfect for me. The recipe is a must try!

    I used beef broth and minced beef instead, gochujang instead of doubanjiang, maizena instead of potato starch, lee kum kee black bean garlic sauce instead of fermented black bean, dried chilli instead of sichuan peppercorn, lower the garlic amount comes out as good :)
