This is a crushed hot pepper paste it's not for the faint of heart but it will add some real kick to almost everything you cook including anything from breakfast eggs, to lunch sandwiches to dinner sides. It is also a product of the USA which means you can enjoy it without worry.

We like this a lot, using it primarily as a table addition to chicken/vegetable stir fry with rice. It is reminiscent of the hot sauce we've had on restaurant Thai food, and adds some delicious zip. In our case, the dish wouldn't be complete without a dollop or two added at the table. Yum. There seems to be some variation in this product, as an identically labelled jar we had in the past was thicker, darker, and a more intense paste.

For those who want to avoid the sugar content of the famous 'Rooster Sauce', this is a great condiment to try. It is fairly hot (in the scoville sense), so use it sparingly. I've used this on everything from rice to potatoes. Very good.

There are a few things that I love about this particular sauce. First, it is mainly chilies preserved with vinegar and some salt. You get the base and can add any flavors you want like garlic, shallots, etc. Second, this is medium low heat, so you can use it when making meals for guests or family members who may not tolerate super spicy dishes. You can always add heat, but you cannot remove it. Finally, the nutrition profile is excellent.

It's the basic ingredients that I most love because this is more of a base than a sauce. I usually saute garlic and shallots in a little olive oil, then add a handful of nuts like cashews, and continue sauteing with this paste. If I am making this for myself or friends who love spicy food I will also shop some fresh bird's eye peppers to kick up the heat a few notches. The finishing touch is some fresh, chopped cilantro and I have a topping that works with everything from eggs to fish.

Nutritionally this sauce is a dieter's dream come true. A serving is a teaspoon and it has only a nominal calorie count. In fact, it's so nominal that two nutritional databases I checked claimed zero calories. The only value that does register is sodium, which is 110mg per teaspoon. That can add up quickly, so if you have sodium restrictions do that that into account.

Overall, this is a flavorful paste that is a little hotter than a jalapeno, but nowhere near as spicy as a habanero. It makes a great base for sauces (and soups), and even works well as a condiment right out of the jar.

This stuff is really tasty. I was expecting it to be similar to Huy Fong's Sriracha (which I also love), but it's nothing like Sriracha. Without all of that extra garlicky stuff that you taste in Sriracha, you can really detect the more delicate flavors of the chilis and it's not so hot that you can't spoon it onto a taco. It's around medium spicy.

My first experience with Sambal Oelek Sauce was at a local Chinese Restaurant called " Parallel China Express " . Later I noticed it in a grocery store and Walmart . It's a wonderful basic condiment and goes well with many foods . Not too hot and a great flavor .
I also like the " Only in America " success story of the company's owner .

This is so delicious! I learned about this because it's made by the people who make Sriracha sauce. But, I love this even more than Sriracha! I'm not sure why it's so delicious, besides that it's darker, maybe a little sweeter, and has some seeds. But, too me, that's probably what makes it delicious. I love the chili seeds in this sauce, and I think that's one of the reasons why it's so delicious.

Now, don't get me wrong. I love Sriracha. For years, I thought it was the most delicious condiment in the world. But, that was before I realized that Huy Fong makes other things, and I tried this out. Now I put it on everything. It's so awesome! You really have to taste this.

Pros:
+Even more delicious than Sriracha sauce
+Ground up and delicious chilis
+You can use it on everything
+Great texture
+Nice and spicy

Cons:
-Has seeds, if you don't like seeds

My second favorite hot sauce, right behind the Chili Garlic by Huy Fong. This one has a bit more seeds and thus a bit more heat in the final product along with being a bit chunky and unforgiving if you overdo it. Makes good heat in sauces, marinades and as a topping. While this is very much a sauce for those who love the flavor profile of sriracha, there's a lot more to it than just the heat. The real benefit here is the after taste and the consistency. I used it just yesterday to thin out and flavor up some hummus I made. Good stuff, and I only didn't give it 5 stars because I use the chili garlic from the same company about 2:1 over this based on flavor alone.
