The food at our house is usually flavorful and piquant, but not “fiery hot”.
However, once in a while, I crave Szechuan food. Not the watered down version you get in Western influenced restaurants, but the real, Szechuan deal. ( When you look at the pictures of the noodles with sauce below, that bright red comes from the Szechuan chili oil and Szechuan chili paste) If you prepare this recipe, you might want to add the chili oil and chili paste at the end (STEP 2),  in VERY small increments, until you reach a level of hotness that almost hurts. The beauty of Szechuan peppers is the fact that after a few seconds of eating them, your mouth becomes almost numb, to the point where you can tolerate spice to a level you did not previously imagine you could.
This might sounds a bit like a bit of senseless torture (to the novice to Szechuan cuisine it certainly is), but it will also provide you with an extreme satisfaction of your taste buds 🙂

Gochujang Blade Steaks With Musaengchae (Spicy Korean Radish Salad)

>
>
While  I prepare blade steaks often, musaengchae is not so common on my dinner table, simply because I usually don’t find Korean radish on my regular shopping-runs, so when I do find them, musaengchae it is.
You could substitute the Korean radish with daikon, but for this particular dish, daikon will be inferior and should only be a last resort.
If you love spicy – this salad is it !
If you love radish – this salad is it !
If you are tired of run of the mill salads – this salad will come to the rescue !

P.S.
These blade steaks were very thin, so the amount pictured (6 steaks) were just enough for one meal for Bella and I 🙂
