My friend Yu Bo sent me this recipe, after I begged him for it. The spices can be varied; Yu Bo told me many Sichuanese cooks would also include small amounts of licorice root (gan cao) and dried “sand ginger” (shan nai, more commonly called kaempferia galangal) but I like it with star anise and extra heat.

I use it as an ingredient in anything requiring sweet soy or as a dip for dumplings or roasted Chinese barbecue, or as a sauce for noodles.
