Rooster Chili Sauce

A Chili Sauce to Crow About – NY Times


One of America’s favourite “ethnic” hot sauces is not imported, but is instead a domestic success.  The Sriracha Chili Sauce (aka Rooster Sauce or Cock Sauce) is used as a condiment in gourmet restaurants, pho restaurants, and as a ketchup or salsa replacement in burger and hot dog joints.


The sauce is made with fresh red jalapeños, garlic powder, sugar, salt and vinegar, which produces a not-TOO-spicy, garlicky hot sauce.


Thanks to MeFi for the bonus links to recipes using sriracha sauce to make steak fajitas, Korean-style filet mignon, and how to make Sriracha Chili Sauce yourself.
