Yes----- and I may not have said before --- after it reaches shimmer, let it shimmer for a few minutes more. How many minutes (heading you off at the pass ) I'm going to guess about 4-5 minutes. The important thing---- don't let the flakes change to a dark red. Just a bit of change.

Are you a Virgo?

Looks almost the same as what mine does. Maybe a teeny bit darker, but computer colors are deceiving.

Do I detect a bit of residue in the bottom of the bottle? That won't hurt anything but I use a very fine strainer (chinois). Poured carefully, none of that residue will get poured out ( IF there is some).

More important----- how does it taste to you? Now you're the one to decide if you need more or less chili flakes. Good job!

Even though I keep seeing this thread float to the top, I've resisted considering making it since we don't have a Costco near us.

Finally googled "Ling Ling" and halleluia!, they are sold quite a few places in addition to Costco: Target, Whole Paycheck (Foods), three local-to-me grocery stores! I see a trip to Target in my future...

And now you've already got the directions! But that hot oil isn't only used on pot stickers in my life!

Oh cave, my plans are to make the soup. My tender taste buds forbid me from making the oil.

No residue at all. Tastes like spicy hot oil.
I used a couple tbs frying four pot sticker s for lunch. Nice and hot, but not to hot.
I did get the nose action when I added the chili oil to the hot pan.

I made a dipping sauce with soy sauce, honey and a few pepper flakes. Heated it up in the microwave and lunch was spicy and good.
I can see many other uses for my new oil. It will always be available at my station.

Thanks.

Great----- I'm glad it was a success! "Nose action" ????

How I use my oil (for the pot stickers) is to cook them first then drizzle the oil over them after I've put them on my plate. That avoids the 'nose action'. But there's no wrong way to use the oil as long as you like it.

Yea, That was one question regarding how you use it. I decided to try it as my cooking oil and it worked out very well.

Tonight I am making fish packets with parchment and plan to drizzle hot chili oil over the fish just before serving.
Thanks!

I had Ling Ling pot stickers yet again today for lunch. Two tbls chili oil for frying. Two tbls water to steam them at first.
Then my homemade dipping sauce. Very good.

Easy lunch except for the frying pan. Washing the pan I mean.
