It’s no secret that I’m a sucker for Asian style black pepper sauce.

But I have some requirements for my ideal black pepper sauce. It has to have just the right amount of peppery-ness to it. But it shouldn’t be too peppery because that can make it taste bitter. And it has to have the perfect amount of sweetness. But it should not be too sweet because I still want it to retain a spicy kick!

A few months ago, I posted my Stir-fried Pork Sukiyaki in Black Pepper Sauce recipe. It truly is one of my all-time favorites and go-to dinner recipes for busy weeknights! Hence, I decided to create a vegetarian recipe using the same sauce (but with different measurements for the ingredients) so that all my veg people can enjoy its deliciousness too! 😉
