Taste Test: The Best Sriracha

Taste Tests J. Kenji López-Alt 68 comments

As condiments go, sriracha is one of the great American success stories. Until David Tran, the 68-year-old Vietnamese immigrant who founded Huy Fong Foods, started marketing his familiar green-capped, rooster-emblazoned version of the Thai hot sauce (named after the coastal city of Si Racha), it was virtually unknown in the United States. Now, you'd be hard pressed to find a supermarket that doesn't stock it or a hipster restaurant that doesn't employ it in one dish or another. But there are many more brands on the market. How would our panel of tasters feel? Would we go for a thicker, spicier, bolder American version, or would our palates lead us to a thinner, sweeter, more vinegary Thai sauce? We gathered together nine different brands and a panel of 16 tasters to find out. More

Kwik Meal Cart's Lamb from 'New York a la Cart'

Kate Williams 3 comments

Hear talk of New York street food and the words "halal meat cart" will probably come up, followed by the words "white sauce" and "hot sauce." As a non-native, I had little idea what New Yorkers were actually describing before trying this recipe from New York a la Cart. Authors Alexandra Penfold and Siobhan Wallace highlight one particularly well-known halal cart called Kwik Meal where the signature dish is lamb marinated in yogurt, mashed green papaya, and a few choice spices.

Kwik Meal Cart's Lamb from 'New York a la Cart'

Serious Eats Kate Williams Post a comment

Hear talk of New York street food, and the words "halal meat cart" will probably come up, followed by the words "white sauce" and "hot sauce." I'd heard these words more than a few times from friends in the city, but as a non-native, I had little idea what they were actually describing. In New York a la Cart, Alexandra Penfold and Siobhan Wallace highlight one particularly well-known halal cart called Kwik Meal. Kwik Meal's signature dish is a yogurt-y lamb (as opposed to the more typical chicken) marinated with mashed green papaya and a few choice spices. Served over rice with white sauce and hot sauce (Penfold and Wallace suggest cooking down spicy salsa verde for 10 minutes or so to replicate the hot sauce), this lamb is relatively mild in spice yet super tender, with a nice balance of acidity to rich meat.

New York Stephanie Klose 6 comments

"Flavor. Not just heat." It's both the motto and the mission of condiment company A+B American Style. To that end, founders and childhood friends Ariel Fliman and Brian Ballan put a lot of thought into what kind of peppers they use in their pepper sauce. More

The Homemade Pantry's Hot Sauce

Serious Eats Caroline Russock 2 comments

This Hot Sauce adapted from The Homemade Pantry by Alana Chernila takes a blend of chiles (dealer's choice), chars 'em up, and blends them with two sour elements—white vinegar and lime juice—and a touch of sugar for a sauce with a nice balance of heat, pucker, and sweet. But of course, your sauce is ultimately contingent on the chiles you pick, so give 'em a little taste before you take the hot sauce plunge. More

Scooped: Michelada Sorbet

Serious Eats Ethan Frisch Post a comment

The michelada is probably my favorite summertime drink, an incredibly refreshing beer cocktail made of a Mexican pilsner-style beer with tomato juice, hot sauce, lime juice and salt. Why not, we wondered, serve it up in frozen form? Sure, it's not as sweet as most ice creams, but what could be better for a summer afternoon than frozen beer? This ice cream is actually quite savory. There's as much salt in the recipe as sugar. More

Dinner Tonight: Roger Ebert's Chicken with Fragrant Rice

Serious Eats Blake Royer 16 comments

A food writer at the Austin American-Statesman called this recipe "the most delicious chicken and rice dish in memory." It comes from Roger Ebert's new cookbook The Pot and How to Use It: The Mystery and Romance of the Rice Cooker, a strange departure not only for a film critic but for someone who has lost the ability to eat or speak.
