You simply can't make real Ma Po Tofu without this sauce. It's absolutely fantastic, the #1 best. Twenty years ago, I would scour Chinatown and Japantown for this stuff, and buy every jar I could find. Now it's much easier to locate, but I still tend to stock up because it's just that precious.

This is wonderful sauce for several delicious stir-fry dishes in Fuschia Dunlop's Land Of Plenty Sichuan cookbook. Added to any stir-fry, and fried for 30 seconds in the oil, it gives a wonderful taste, even with no other spices added. Buy it, you won't be sorry.

The quality and flavor of this sauce is excellent. As others have said it's salty and not too hot. It's the flavors that sold me on this. It also sparked a few ideas for dishes that are from a different part of the world.

I have found that topping a Mediterranean eggplant sauce like caponata with this greatly enhances the flavor and gives that dish a little spice boost. It's also perfect as the base of lentil and bean dishes. And it should go without saying that there are numerous Szechuan dishes that require this sauce.

Back to the salt. It's prominent in the flavor profile, but the actual sodium content of a teaspoon size serving is only 310mg. That is not something you want to brag about to your cardiologist, but it's also less than half the content of many other sauces.

The chilis add a lot to the flavor and are mild. That is the beauty of this. If you love your meals scorching hot, but are cooking for folks who do not, set aside some for you and like minded folks. Saute some bird's eye chilies in a little oil, add in some Szechuan peppercorns, and then this sauce.

If you need this for a recipe then this is an excellent brand. I purchase a lot of products from it and have never been disappointed. However, do not limit yourself to Asian cuisine because this sauce works wonderfully with others too.

If you miss the famous Chinese cuisine Mapo tofu, try it. It's much easier to make the sauce with it. But this bean sauce is really salty. If you use it , you probably needn't to add extra salt. So be careful when use it!

This chili sauce is a required ingredient of many Szechuan dishes, and this brand authentic to the ones I've had in China. Recommended.

Others have mentioned that this is "hot but not too hot" and they are right. Perhaps not even as spicy as Sriracha the thing others have not mentioned is that this sauce (more of a paste, really) is wonderfully salty, which Sriracha definitely is not!

I was delighted to finally find this sauce in my local Asian market. A spoonful or two delivers that essential zing in Ma Po Tofu, and adds wonderful flavor to many other dishes--stirfries, soups, and casseroles. Quite by accident, I ended up making a fantastic beef noodle soup in the crockpot--2 bone-in beef shanks, 1/2 cup soy sauce, 1/2 cup shaoxing wine, and 2 spoonfuls of LKK chili bean sauce--the results were as good as the slow roasted beef noodle soup at my favorite Chinese haunt in the DC area.

It is quite salty, so use sparingly and "taste as you go."
