Leftover Szechuan beef

I have to say I'm pretty good with leftovers. I'd say my leftover Szechuan beef was better than the original.

This is what I had for dinner last night at Asian Temptation in Oneonta, NY. I ate about half of it.

Here's my to-go container out of the refrigerator. Not too exciting looking.

The main problem I had was that it was not nearly spicy enough. I solved that problem with a fresh serrano pepper and 1 tsp. Szechuan peppercorns.

I sliced the pepper and coarsely ground the peppercorns.

Stir-fried the peppers.

I warmed up the leftovers in the microwave for 1 minute. Then added to the sauté pan, added the peppercorns, and enough sauce to coat it, but not drown it. I didn't use all of the leftover sauce.

Finishing it off in a sauté pan is more work than just microwaving it, but the results are so much better.

And that's it!
