Sriracha is way too hot, which is why all the hipster foodie tossers like it.

This is like arguing over BK vs. MacDo's. Why bother?

My 7yo daughter has enjoyed it on soups and noodles and rice and salads and sandwiches since she was about 3 or 4. Of course, my 7yo daughter is pretty kickass.

She's a better man than I am, obviously. ;-)

Of course personal taste and experience has a lot to do with it.  I like spicy, but I like good taste too, and for
me Sriracha sauce is just heat for the sake of heat, whereas with Tabasco I can actually taste something
alongside the heat.

And don't get me started about the high-Scoville 'designer' hot sauces that would probably work better
as personal defense weapons than as condiments.

I'll bet you'd enjoy Smoked Tabasco. This is great stuff. It has a lot of savory flavor, but almost no heat. In the 'Bunny hutch, we go through about 2 bottles a month.

Sriracha is the new bacon
 
2013-04-26 02:20:44 PM
Tabasco is great because it has a unique flavor to go along with the heat.  It has completely different uses than most hot sauces, which are fairly interchangeable.

You've got that all backwards.

Tabasco is spicy vinegar and really doesn't bring much to any meals. Sriracha isn't even that hot if used in moderation but does bring out the flavours in far more foods than Tabasco.
 
2013-04-26 02:23:07 PM
Depends. Both are different tools for the job.

I've found that a little Tabasco is great to make chicken wings.
 
2013-04-26 02:23:49 PM
They each have a purpose. Tabasco for more Mexican dishes, siracha for Asian. But that attitude is way too balanced for foodies.
 
2013-04-26 02:24:12 PM
That's like asking which is better: A hammer or a screwdriver?

Depends on whether you're working with nails, or working with screwdrivers.

Different foods demand different hot sauces.

So...what's a good hot sauce? I don't find Tabasco too hot, but I don't really like the flavor.

Tabasco for eggs and bad Mexican food and giving a little extra kick to bloody marys

Sriracha for damn near everything else.
 
2013-04-26 02:27:53 PM
Sriracha isn't hot.

It is overrated, however.

And the stuff in the plastic bottle isn't the only kind of chili sauce you can get.

Vinegar goes with a wide variety of things, so your statement is incorrect on its face.

I'd rather taste the food and not the hot sauce. Crushed red pepper flakes for me.

I will tell you this. Siracha makes a disGUSTing bloody mary. Just...bleh. I prefer Red Rooster Louisiana for my everyday hot sauce needs. Though, this year we're going to experiment with making our own out of some of the peppers we're growing in the garden.

Oh, and...

Farxist Marxist: DIY Sriracha:

http://www.instructables.com/id/DIY-Sriracha-aka-Rooster-Sauce/


I like this stuff I make better than Sriracha for most things.  It's from Ball Complete Book of Home Preserving.  The raisins are little spice bombs waiting to explode with awesome.

Makes about 12 4-oz or 6 8-oz jars.
2 1/2 cups white vinegar (5% acidity).
2 1/2 granulated sugar
4 cups chopped hot peppers. (I used about 3 cups chopped Thai Chilies and 1 cup Jalapenos, seeds and all)
1 1/2 cups raisins, rinsed.
1/4 cup garlic
1 tbsp grated gingerroot
2 tsp salt

1) Prep your canner, jars, and lids
2) In a large non reactive sauce pan, combine vinegar and sugar.
Bring to a boil over high heat, stirring to dissolve the sugar.
Reduce heat and boil gently 3 minutes.
Add peppers, raisins, garlic, gingerroot and salt, increase the heat and bring to a boil.
Reduce heat again and boil gently 5 minutes
3) Ladle the Sauce into hot jars, leaving 1/2" head space. Remove air bubbles. Wipe rim. Center lid. Screw band on until finger tip tight.
4) Put the jars in the boiling water canner, making sure they are completely covered with water by about 1". Bring to boil and boil 10 minutes. After the 10 minutes, turn off the burner, remove the canner lid, and wait 5 minutes. Remove jars, cool, and store.

El Yucateco.  Good table sauce.  Red is HOT.  Green is hot with a little more flavor.

If you want hot ingredient-type sauce with flavor, I recommend this stuff called Pure Habanero - Red Savina.  Google for it, it's a little bottle with a cork in it.  Lots of flavor, lots of heat.

I'm more a Cholula man myself.
 
2013-04-26 02:33:37 PM
I like them both, but they're not going to be putting little bottles of Sriracha in MREs anytime soon. Tabasco is king.
 
2013-04-26 02:33:42 PM
just to reiterate: Tabasco is hotter than Sriracha

the only arguable reason why you might think sriracha is hotter is because you put more of it on.  since it's thicker, less runs off.

each have their purposes.  tabasco in bloody mary's and pickles.  sriracha on stuff asian (very particular flavor profile, will overpower if misapplied).  crystal's for everything else!

/ not a big hot sauce guy. i don't mind heat at all, but i don't care for cheap vinegar too much.  some house made hotsauces are great though.  like at this restaurant called cochon.  or butcher, cochon's little brother.  only hotsauce on earth that is actually awesome.

I know what you mean about hot for the sake of hot while foregoing flavor. that's exactly how I feel about buffalo sauce.
