Are we ready to make my extra chili oil? I’m super thrilled to share this recipe because I can almost see your face after tasting this chili oil!! Let’s get started!

Slice 2 oz of ginger, crush 12 cloves garlic lightly with the side of a knife, cut 1 medium size onion (peels on) into quarters.

Combine the ginger, garlic, onion, 2 tbsp Sichuan peppercorns, 1 bay leaf, and 3 cups of neutral oil in a saucepan. I like to use avocado oil. You can also use vegetable, canola, grape seed, or peanut oil

Turn the heat to medium and let it simmer for 15 to 18 minutes or until all the veggies are brown.

Meanwhile, toast chili flakes in a dry pan until it’s darkened and smokey, over medium heat for about 4 to 5 minutes. Don’t be scared that it might burn, it’s completely ok to be black and burnt. This is for the extra smokey flavor!

I like to use Thai chili flakes for extra spicy but you can use regular red pepper flakes. Adjust to your taste!

Meanwhile, chop 1/2 of onion or 3 large shallots.

Heat a wok or a pot over high heat, add 3 tbsp neutral oil, and chopped onion. Stir fry onion until caramelized, about 4 minutes.

Reduce heat to low; add 1/2 cup chili flakes, 2 tbsp gochugaru (It’s optional for the extra-bright red color), 2 tbsp fermented black beans (It’s also optional for the extra flavor), 2 tbsp sugar, 1/2 tsp msg (or mushroom powder), and a pinch of salt. Pour the flavored oil through a strainer, only clear oil. Stir and cook for an additional 1 to 2 minutes, remove from heat and let it cool.

Again, I like to use Thai chili flakes for extra spicy but you can use regular red pepper flakes. Adjust to your taste!

Store in an air-tight jar. (I like to keep it in a mason jar because this recipe fits perfectly in a 32 oz mason jar! 🙂

Keep it in a pantry, no need to keep it in a fridge. It will last 3 to 4 months. But be careful that you keep the jar clean as you use them as they can go moldy. Enjoy!
