Kalyn’s Kitchen Picks: Sriracha Rooster Sauce
Who else is a huge fan of Sriracha Rooster Sauce? I love this spicy sauce on just about everything!
For years I remember seeing Sriracha Sauce on the tables in Asian restaurants. My friends who loved spicy food always called this “Rooster Sauce” because of the rooster on the bottle. I’m not someone who can handle ultra spicy foods, so for some ridiculous reason, I never tried it on my food. Fast-forward quite a few years and I noticed food bloggers everywhere talking about the great flavor of Sriracha. I tried it, and I’ve been loving it ever since whenever I want just a little spicy-hot flavor in something. And now Sriracha Rooster Sauce is something that is always in my fridge, so it seems like time to officially add it to Kalyn’s Kitchen Picks, my list of food items and products that I happily buy over and over.
I’m well aware that the Sriracha sauce I buy in my local supermarket or Asian grocer is not the real Sriracha sauce you’d get if you went to Thailand or Vietnam. (Someday I hope to go there and try it!) If you want to try making it, there’s a recipe for authentic Thai Sriracha at She Simmers or one for Sriracha Chile Sauce at Viet World Kitchen. If I get to Thailand or Vietnam I’ll report back on how the flavor of the authentic Sriracha is different, but meanwhile I’ll continue enjoying the sauce you see pictured in this post.
I often use Sriracha mixed into a dressing or stir-fry sauce, and below are a few of my favorite recipes using this tasty sauce. Check after the photos for even more recipes, including some from other Sriracha-loving food bloggers. (And if you have a favorite recipe that uses Sriracha, please let us know about it in the comments!)

About Kalyn’s Kitchen Picks
I love to share my favorite foods and kitchen tools and you can see the complete list of products and foods I’ve chosen at Kalyn’s Kitchen Picks. I purchased the Sriracha in the photo myself and this company has no idea that I’m writing about their product. Everything featured for Kalyn’s Kitchen Picks is a product I’ve tried myself and loved. For years now I haven’t accepted samples from the many companies who offer to send them to me, and for the very few times I’ve featured a product I received as a sample, I will always disclose that, and you can be sure I won’t be writing about anything unless it’s something I would have happily purchased myself.
