Lee Kum Kee Spicy Bean Sauce Ma Po, 340g


Spicy bean sauce allows you to create Ma Po Tofu – Pock-marked Mother Chen’s Beancurd – one of Sichuan’s most famous dishes at home. Combining fermented soy bean paste, salted chillies, sesame oil and Sichuan peppers, the sauce delivers a piquant, savoury kick characteristic of Sichuanese cuisine. Culinary legend has it that Ma Po Tofu was created by the smallpox-scarred wife of a Qing Dynasty restaurateur in Sichuan. For a quick and easy meal, stir-fry minced beef or pork, add in some of the sauce, then fold in cubed tofu and heat through.
