Authentic recipe for mapo tofu?

loratliff | Jul 28, 2012 08:18 PM

Despite fairly in-depth Googling, I can't find a recipe for mapo tofu that seems authentic...

They all seem to fiddle with it in some way: no spicy red oil (a must), adding frozen peas (what?), using mushrooms in lieu of pork, and some even using regular black pepper instead of Sichuan peppercorns (!!!).

Anyone have a recipe with lots of oil, ground pork, and real peppercorns? I know all of the basic ingredients, but just need a little guidance.
