poughdrew: maudibjr: Am I the only person who dosnt like spicy food.  This sriracha stuff is in everything now.

You and my 2 year old son.

Now Adobo, there is a seasoning that goes with everything.


Yeah, that has basically replaced table salt I'm my house. It's good on fresh limes too!

*Shrug*
I don't like anything just because it is spicy, or dislike anything just because it isn't.  But spiciness doesn't bother me and chiles taste good, and although being spicy does not, by itself, make something more flavorful, I feel that it can help enhance flavors.  Some dishes benefit from it, some don't.


Pointy Tail of Satan: Sriracha Sauce is like 2000 on the Scoville scale. So basically, it's like hot sauce for Mexican infants.

Man up, dudes! Blair's 16 Million Reserve is calling you!


Is there such a thing?
That'd just be capsaicin crystals, which is stupid.  It wouldn't taste like anything, it would just burn the shiat out of your mucous membranes, probably make you vomit, irritate all your innards, and burn a hole in your stomach lining.

Disgusting sauce. Just.. no.
Would rather eat that Cholula crap.
 
2013-03-07 10:34:36 PM  

optikeye: Why purchase it? It's super easy to make and I've made it for ages.

1/2 cup kosher salt.
5 tsp of Sriracha sauce.

Mix well together and put on foil or parchment paper--layer it out. Preheat the oven to 200.
Put that in the oven and turn off the oven. It will dry overnight.
Wait---about 12 hours or more, until it's dry. It'll clump up but just put in a plastic bag and smash it back to salt.

Good for salting a glass rim for a bloody marry, or finish salt for fish, chicken, salads.


I've been using this recipe since I saw it on Fark last fall. It's the only salt my wife and I use now.

I prefer Tabasco over Frank's, but you won't catch me turning down Frank's.  Mind you, I'm the sort that might put 6 or 8 pureed habaneros in a pot of chili, and I put a few jalapenos or a Hungarian in my spaghetti sauce, so Frank's is more just a flavor thing.  I've actually put it in my eye on a bet before.  It wasn't fun, but it was WAY less painful than many of the other hot sauces that I have accidentally got in my eye.  Dave's Insanity was almost an hour of pure Hell when a drop splashed right into my eye.......

MrHappyRotter: Yeah,  Sriracha is the McDouble of hot sauces.  Absolutely nothing wrong with it if that's your cup of tea, and I don't judge you for liking it.

That being said, I wonder sometimes if people just hate themselves and lack tastebuds or if they've simply never tried a 1/2 decent sauce.


I have had to slowly adjust to spicy food over the years, and most of the 'decent' sauces people praise just taste like burning death to me. Sriracha has a bit of flavor to it and doesn't kill me (although it tries if I go overboard).

I like spicy foods, and I do have a bottle of sriracha in the house.  I like flavor over straight heat, so the vinegar based hot sauces are usually what I favor.

Can any farker recommend a good, flavorful hot sauce on the medium high scale?  Not flavorless tongue number, but just enough kick...

Thanks
 
2013-03-07 11:31:55 PM  
I know you guys have just discovered despite it existing forever, but other condiments and spices are still good. Cholula is still really good, for instance.
 
2013-03-07 11:33:10 PM  
The only hot sauce I don't like is the stuff that's just painful for me to eat.  Fortunately, the only stuff that's painful to eat will bubble the paint off a car so I'm pretty good to go.
Franks is in the fridge now but the fridge is just the gateway to hotter so . . .

Anybody know if you can consume the pepper spray the police use?  I would think perhaps but then again I don't trust 'em to not put a vomit agent in it.
How great would that be, to be able to spray your food with hot sauce?

I've had stuff that made my teeth hurt . . . that can't be good

For mexican I go

El Yucateco
They have a few different varieties in different heat levels. And is usually 1-1.50 a bottle so pretty cheap as well. the habanero goes from 5,000 to 9000 scoville units depending on the type. The jalapeno is only 1200 so that is pretty mild

Believe it or not, you CAN consume pepper spray. An ex of mine did it on a dare once. He said it really made his eyes water but it's 100% edible.

I don't mind a little kick but I prefer intense flavor to intense heat in my food. Some peoples philosophy is the hotter the better and that's not me!

Sudo_Make_Me_A_Sandwich: EvilEgg: Sriracha is tasty enough, I just don't understand this over the top adoration.

It's a little sweet. I much prefer chili garlic paste (the stuff with the same rooster on the bottle is good) if I want to add heat to a dish, or some Habenero Tabasco.



Sambal Oelek's fresh ground chili paste & Uncle Chen's chili garlic sauce, these two are always in my fridge.

Frank's is a good "general purpose" or "neutral" hot sauce.  But if I had to pick only one hot sauce, it would probably be Melinda's, which uses a carrot base.

antidisestablishmentarianism: The Snow Dog: smoked salt)

This sounds delicious. Why have I never heard of it.


Stuff is really good on a Bloody Bull. I used to bartend, so know a dozen or so really good "from scratch" Bloody recipes. A Bloody Bull includes some beef bouillon or reduced beef stock with your tomato juice; Worcestershire; horseradish; black, red, and white peppers; pepper sauce; coriander; celery salt; mustard; lemon; and vodka. I'll bet a Sriracha and smoked salt blend rim would put that over the top.

Bloody Caesar is my favorite, just use clam base or clam juice instead of the jigger of beef bullion. I think it would be better with lemon salt / Sriracha salt blend.

/Also: Pickled asparagus or pickled green beans instead of / in addition to celery. (And a nice strip of crisp (but not too crisp) bacon?)

red5ish: Sriracha does not complement bacon.


The hell it doesn't.

www.ocmit.com

Mix 5lbs of of 93/7% ground beef with 1 whole diced onion, one diced garlic clove, three eggs, and about 1/2 cup of Sriracha.
Press into 1/3lb patties, and wrap the patties in bacon.
Smoke for around an hour and a half, using mesquite or hickory. Personally, I like mesquite.

These will be the juiciest, most flavorful hamburgers that you'll ever have. 5lbs of meat doesn't go very far, because the whole neighborhood will smell great, and you'll have every friend, family, and neighbor in the area stopping by trying to get some.

Really, if it was a dollar, Id buy a case of it.
