Ingredient Substitutions and Notes
This recipe is super versatile and allows for lots of substitutions to suit your tastes:
You can substitute ground chicken or turkey for the pork.
You can sub mustard greens, beet greens, Chinese greens or kale for the broccolini
You can sub vegetable stock for the chicken stock

Sichuan peppercorns have a unique tingle. Look for them in the spice department of your grocery store, or order them online. I prefer to buy them whole and grind them when I use them.
