6 Chinese Five Spice Powder Recipes We Love

Heat and umami are king in Sichuan dishes, a type of Chinese cuisine that comes from the Sichuan province of southwestern China. While it’s certainly true that chilies are extremely important in the local food, Sichuan cuisine is about much more than spiciness.

Chinese Five Spice Powder is an essential base seasoning for Sichuan cooking, referring to the 5 elements: wood, fire, earth, metal and water. The flavors in Chinese Five Spice perfectly compliment rich and fatty meats like duck, pork and beef and is probably most recognizable as the main flavor in char siu (which literally translates to ‘fork burn’, with ‘char’ meaning fork and siu meaning burn-after the traditional cooking method for the dish).
