when baking, follow directions.. when cooking, go by your own taste.. ~ Laiko Bahrs
you know those bottled commercial black pepper sauces that are displayed alongside bottles of chilli sauces and tomato ketchups in stores?
i absolutely dislike them..
they always, always give me excess gas and cramps in my tummy.. besides that, i’m also not a fan of the taste.. the heat from the black pepper is often too strong for my liking..
so, whenever i plan to cook a dish with black pepper sauce, i get my mortar and pestle out, grind black peppercorns to powder, and make a sauce from scratch.. it’s so easy and tastes so much better than those store bought ones too.. besides, the thing with homemade stuff, you absolutely know the ingredients that go into them.. also, no additives, preservatives, artificial flavors and whatever else is always a huge plus..
so, if there’s anything banned from my pantry, store bought instant black pepper sauce is one of them..
today’s recipe happens to be one of hubs’ favorite stir fry dishes.. he, too, prefers black pepper sauce made from scratch..
you can try this recipe with chicken, beef, pork, and other seafood if preferred..
