Like most hot sauces, Sriracha is extremely versatile. Here are a few ways to enjoy the potent sauce:
- Straight: Sriracha’s original use was as a dipping sauce. Squeeze some into a small bowl or squirt it straight from the bottle onto your favorite foods.
- Sauces: Sriracha’s spicy, tangy flavor pairs wonderfully with creamy dips and sauces. Mix some Sriracha into sour cream, mayonnaise, or cream cheese-based dips for a little kick.
- Soups/Stews: Sriracha is often served with pho in Vietnamese restaurants, but you can also try adding it to ramen, tomato soup, or gazpacho. Cream-based soups, like chowders, also benefit from Sriracha’s kick.
- Meats/Marinades: Add Sriracha to teriyaki flavored marinades, BBQ sauces, meatballs, meatloaf, or chicken wings. Sriracha and meat were made for each other.
