It’s a name we’ve come to know… and love – but most of us cannot correctly pronounce it. So, let’s clear that up first. See-rah-chah. The first ‘r’ is silent. Need more help? Check out this quick video example that includes the founder of Huy Fong Foods offering the authentic pronunciation.
Our collective inability to correctly pronounce it’s name has not prevented this beloved sauce from becoming the world’s most popular condiment. Or as it’s referred to in the offices of H. J. Heinz – “the ketchup killer”.
The recipe originally produced by David Tran and family at Huy Fong Foods used Serrano peppers. Now they use red Jalapeño peppers. This adjustment to the recipe provides more flavor and a bit less heat, thereby making sriracha a more universally acceptable hot sauce. (unless you live in Irwindale, California – there, it seems the universe is conspiring against sriracha)
People around the world use sriracha on almost any food you can think of. The subtle sweetness, combined with the slight vinegar tartness along with the hint of garlic-y goodness and gentle chile pepper burn is seriously addictive.
However, sometimes using the sauce comes at a culinary price. The perfect bite is always about appearance, taste and texture. There’s no denying the beauty of the rich, red color of sriracha. We’ve agreed long ago on it’s uniquely tasty contributions. However, using sriracha sauce can cause otherwise crispy textures to become soggy and that just kills a good dish. How soggy depends on the application but we make allowance because there
isn’t hasn’t been a good alternative – until now…
