don't forget pizza! it's great, especially with some chopped raw onions.

or in a meatloaf, or burgers.

and of course it's good on chinese food, like lo mein or chow fun.

and it is hot sauce crack. you know you're getting desensitized when you can sip it straight up.

I've had a large bottle of it in my pantry for over a year now. Bought it before I tasted it in a restaurant & didn't really care for it there. It had - at least to me - a slightly sweet aftertaste to it, so I never bothered cracking open the bottle I had at home.

Don't get me wrong - I ADORE spicy & VERY spicy food, but really like artisinal hot pepper sauces in Spanish/Mexican dishes, & my old standby - Chili-Garlic Sauce - in my Asian dishes.

After reading this, maybe I should finally crack it open & give it another chance.

I do not like Sriacha either Breezy. I just don't like the flavor. I love hot stuff, but this one just isn't for me. Franks is another one that lots love, but I do not like.

I once read a post that said "Sriracha: Condiment or Crack?" It IS addictive.[/quote]

True!!

So if I stuck a tsp in my crockpot full of red beans & sausage & stuff instead of tabasco would it be too hot? I tasted a little straight. It's yummy...... right before your tongue falls out.

Maybe 1/2 tsp. to start. I think it would be wonderful but as this thread illustrates, not everyone likes the taste.

I better leave it out, there's already plenty of chance that the kids wont eat it, no need to give them another reason!

I certainly don't think it's hotter than Tabasco -- it just tastes very different.

No, it's not hotter than Tabasco - at least not to my taste buds. It's just, as you said, different.

In fact, I'm not a fan of Tabasco either. I find it to be virtually all heat & no taste.

While I do enjoy experimenting with different bottles of artisinal-type hot sauces, my mainstays for cooking are Frank's Louisiana Hot Sauce & Asian Chili-Garlic paste (which is really more of a very thick sauce than a paste).
