Chile-laced Sriracha has long been a go-to sauce for any meal. Whether you’re eating shrimp, steak, fish, or even eggs, Sriracha will add flavor that is unmatched. Here are few lesser-known ways of using this flavorful sauce:
Sriracha Bacon – Yes, you read that correctly. And the excitement that you feel is perfectly normal. All you need is 8 strips of bacon, Sriracha, and brown sugar. Arrange the eight strips on a baking rack and squeeze a small line of Sriarcha down the center of each piece of bacon. Then sprinkle each piece of bacon with a generous amount of brown sugar. Place the rack on top of a baking sheet to catch the unnecessary grease because we have to think of our health sometimes and also the excess amount of liquid from the brown sugar can keep the bacon from crisping. Then bake at 350 degrees for about 25 minutes or until you feel that the bacon is cooked to your liking.
Deviled Ham Sandwich – If you have a fair amount of left over ham, this sandwich is right up your alley. If you lack the patience to chop your ham to the desired style, feel free to use a food processor, as you’ll want the meat shredded. Once the ham is shredded, mix all of the ingredients together and place this flavorful mixture on your favorite bread.
1 pound smoked ham (cooked)
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup mustard
1/2 cup onion
2 tablespoon Sriracha
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
2 teaspoons hot smoked paprika
Salt and Pepper
Peanut Butter Sriracha Cookies – Yup. You read that one correctly too. Sriracha is made of chili pepper paste, salt, sugar, vinegar, and garlic. Although it doesn’t sound like the ingredient for an amazing cookie, when sweet and spicy combine, this cookie might change your entire life.
1 cup Unsalted Butter (softened)
1½ cups Crunchy Peanut Butter
1 cup Sugar
1 cup Brown Sugar (packed)
¼ cup Sriracha
1 tsp Vanilla extract
2¾ to 3 cups All-Purpose Flour
1 teaspoon Baking Powder
½ teaspoon Salt
1½ teaspoons baking soda
Mix the butter, peanut butter, and sugars together. Slowly add in Sriracha, eggs, and vanilla. Beat these ingredients together until well blended. In another bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Combine both mixtures in a bowl and place the bowl in the refrigerator to chill for at least an hour. Then separate the dough into circular balls and back at 375 degrees for 8 to 10 minutes or until the cookies are brown.
