Some other very entertaining reviews[Davids Ghost pepper sauce] (

My personal favorite line:
That is it had a nice flavor for about 1500 milliseconds before Oppenheimer hit the red button and, "I am become heat, the destroyer of digestive tracts."

My time to shine This isn't slowcooking, but those packets make really good butter chicken in less than 30 min. The wife and I have that at least once every two weeks.

My room mate used to eat my food. Well used to until I put this in some carne asada I made. I took him to the hospital where the conversation I overheard was hilarious.

"How did this happen?"

"I ate some food my room mate cooked."

"well is he ok?"


"well then stop stealing his food."

Apparently they deal with this type of thing a lot being in a college town.

u/jay_emdee · 27 pointsr/GifRecipes

Sure! I usually just throw this together with whatever veg I have on hand, so measurements may not be precise. But it always turns out great.

-2-3T coconut or olive oil

-4 large or 6 small bone-in chicken thighs, skins reserved

-1 large onion, cut into petals

-1 red bell pepper, large dice

-1 garlic clove, minced

-3 red potatoes, large dice (sometimes I use squash instead, if I have it around)

-1 large head of broccoli, cut into bite-size florets

-2-3T Mae Ploy curry paste I usually use the red, which is medium heat. Yellow is milder, green is spicier.

-1 Kaffir lime leaf, if you have access to them. If not, nbd.

-1 can coconut milk

-1 c chicken stock

  • 1/4c cornstarch slurry (equal parts cornstarch and water)


    -Minced basil

    -Toasted coconut (it’s a good idea to make extra for next time)

    -lime wedges

    -fried chicken skin, minced


    -Heat up a large, deep skillet to medium heat, add oil.

    -Heat a second smaller pan for skins. Lay them in flat, turn to medium heat, and keep a close eye on them while you’re putting the curry together, turning often. Your goal is a very crisp skin. This usually takes 10-15 minutes. Once they’re done, pull them out and set on a plate lined with a paper towel.

    -Brown chicken thighs on both sides, in large skillet. Once browned, pull them out and set aside.

    -Add onions and pepper, along with a teaspoon or so of Kosher salt. Scrape bottom of pan while cooking. Once onions are translucent, add garlic, cook for 30 seconds or so.

    -Add chicken stock and stir, then add coconut milk. Add in curry paste, breaking it up to incorporate well. Add potatoes and/or squash and lime leaf, if using.

    -Return chicken thighs to pan. There should be enough liquid to just cover the thighs. If not, add more stock, or even water is fine.

    -Boil, then turn to simmer and cover. Set a timer for 20 minutes, check for seasoning and curry strength about halfway in.

    While that’s cooking

    Prep your garnishes, and make yourself some rice.

    -mince basil
    -toast coconut
    -cut limes
    -mince chicken skins

    When your timer goes off, pull off the lid of the curry, add no more than 1T of your cornstarch slurry and stir. Take it easy with the slurry. Too much and you’ll have a disgusting, gloppy mess. The consistency you’re looking for is nappe, or just thick enough to cover the back of a spoon.

    -Add in the broccoli, cover and cook for 3 more minutes. Take off the lid, and give it a stir.

    Put that shit over rice.

    -Garnish with a heavy hand.

u/hjhart · 23 pointsr/EatCheapAndHealthy

Mae Ploy is a highly regarded curry paste and can be found in some groceries in the asian section.

It has much better flavor than the "Thai Kitchen" crap you'll find in most US grocery stores. Also, it holds in the fridge for numerous months and you only use a few tablespoons (I like it hot!) per dish.

I buy mine on amazon.

u/Fireye · 20 pointsr/anime_irl

You use curry cubes as a pre-made roux that forms the base of the curry. S&B is pretty popular in the states, so I guess this

u/chefmikeb · 17 pointsr/AskCulinary

There are tons of variables in the situation you describe that could account for your problem.

A few examples;

The commercial sauces and the takeaway restaurant using ingredients and quantities your body isn't accustomed too.

The sanitation conditions of the location they were prepared and the employees preparing them.

Was there time/temperature abuse involved in the production of these items.

Those are just a few that spring to mind.

Also, some facilities just use distilled (if you will forgive my use of the term) capsaicin to add heat to commercial sauces (like Dave's Insanity Sauce) since it is cheaper than buying actual peppers. Your digestive tract might have an issue with that. Your takeaway place might be using a sauce like that as a base for it's own.

Good luck!

Hope this helps.

u/El_Hechizado · 17 pointsr/Cooking


  • Noodles: Udon, ramen, soba, vermicelli
  • Sauces: soy sauce, chili sauce (Sriracha is my fave), black bean garlic sauce, hoisin sauce, oyster sauce, fish sauce
  • Oils/vinegars/wines: mirin, shaoxing cooking wine, rice vinegar, peanut oil, toasted sesame oil
  • Spices: Star anise, 5 spice powder, chili flakes

    Optional, but stuff I really like to have around:

  • Gochujang (Korean chili paste)
  • Dried seaweed
  • Miso paste
  • Bonito flakes (dried tuna flakes used to make dashi, a Japanese broth)
  • Doubanjiang (Chinese spicy bean paste, essential for Ma Po Tofu)

Secret Aardvark Habanero Hot Sauce. Arguably the most delicious tasting hot sauce, and served on the table at every restaurant in Portland. Perfect balance of heat and flavor. It's legit. I've had a bottle in my fridge since it hit the market. It's good on everything and quite infamous in the Northwest. It's a staple in many homes out here.

u/Cdresden · 10 pointsr/hotsauce

Get a bottle of a hot sauce that contains capsaicin extract, something like Dave's Insanity or Da Bomb. Uncap your bottle of Crystal, add 1/4 tsp of the super sauce, and shake like hell. There are also lots of capsaicin extracts that would do the same thing.

u/Terrik27 · 10 pointsr/EatCheapAndHealthy

Where do you get those? I don't think I've ever seen them at a local grocery store. Are the prices on Amazon reasonable? I'm seeing like this :. 6 Can (4oz. Each) of Thai Green Red Yellow Curry Pastes Set (Original Version)

u/NoraTC · 10 pointsr/Cooking

Get out your globe (at least figuratively) and look at cuisines on the same latitude (plus or minus from the equator) as his native place. Those cuisines will generally have similar available herbs, spices and cooking methods. but be totally different from his home cuisine, so you are not making a "bad copy". I have a Guatemalan future son-in-law and made the discovery quite accidentally when I caused him to fall in love with northern Thai food, which we love around here. Cajun and Gullah cooking also fit the pattern.

Your comment about curry surprised me - a lot - because Thai is built on herb pastes, but if you grew up with Mediterranean, your understanding of curry may be shaped by the India trade. Try a Mae ploy paste for a dead easy meal that I cannot imagine he would reject. You need only coconut milk, protein and veg to get dinner on the table in a half hour.

If you grew up in old time Southern, you grew up with a relish tray on the table: chow chow, tabasco, quick pickle type stuff. He did too, but more likely chili oil, chopped peanuts, sesame oil and fresh herbs. A lot of meals that may not appeal to him they way you intuitively spice them may seem quite good to him, if he has condiments to tailor them to his taste.

I would also commend sitting down together and watching some Hot Thai Kitchen together so you can get him to explain more about how to please him in the kitchen ... feeding 'em and laying 'em are about communication, at the risk of being inappropriate.

u/glemnar · 9 pointsr/AskCulinary

What you’re looking for is Golden Curry. You can find it or an equivalent at roughly every Asian market on the planet, or online. Use half a box if cooking for 1-2, whole box for 4. I always caramelize onions before and add them in as well, and you can always add potatoes / carrot etc. It’s ridiculously thick after cooked down for 15 minutes or so even without potato (which add more starchy thickness).

Make sure you stir frequently / watch it while cooking to avoid developing thick curry film (though it stirs right back in). Preboil potatoes (and probably carrots as well to an extent) if you want them in the mix

u/Typeaux · 9 pointsr/ketorecipes

These were solid and managed to stay intact and not crumble (like my initial attempt). They were very crispy and had the same texture as Japanese katsu. Serve with your favorite low carb dipping sauce. We did spicy mayo.


Ingredients - Roughly 8 Strips (Serving per 1 Strip ~1g Net Carbs | 16g Fat | 17g Protein)

  • 16 oz Chicken (I used breast and cut them into strip sizes)
  • 1 cup Blanched Almond Flour
  • 2 Eggs
  • Crushed Pork Rinds
  • Coconut Oil (Or your preferred frying oil)

    Optional Dipping Sauce - Spicy Mayo (Zero Carb)

  • 5 tbsp Mayo
  • 3 tbsp Huy Fong Chili Garlic Sauce (Sriracha Substitute)
  • 1 tsp Sesame Oil



  1. Cut chicken to desired strip sizes
  2. Put the almond flour on a flat plate or plastic container
  3. In a different plate/container, mix your eggs
  4. Put crushed pork rinds in a large bowl
  5. Put your frying oil on a pan at medium heat


  6. Dunk your chicken strip in almond flour
  7. Dunk your chicken strip in egg
  8. Place your chicken in bowl with the pork rinds and bury it, press down for a nice and even coat of "breading"
  9. Set aside and repeat until all strips are breaded
  10. Toss strips on pan and cook for 2-3 mins on each side until golden brown


    Big thank you to /u/1whisky1scotch1beer for the Chili Garlic Sauce as a Sriracha substitute tip!

Pepper jelly is amazing on crackers with cream cheese. It sounds crazy, I know, but everyone I’ve introduced to it has been surprised at how good it is. It’s usually not made with particularly spicy peppers, btw. It’s about as hot as mae ploy sweet chili sauce.

El Yucateco XXXtra Hot sauce

It has an amazing flavor with medium amount of heat but it just tastes so amazing and goes well with mexican food and meats. Really smokey tasting.

u/gregmo7 · 8 pointsr/Cooking

To keep on this, replace the soy sauce with coconut aminos. It's a little sweeter, but it's pretty close while still maintaining the savory addition of soy sauce and an added plus: no tyramine.

u/gidet · 7 pointsr/Columbus

We have quite the collection of hot sauces in our household and Last Dab Reduxx has been my go to lately. Though it packs a punch it is delicious! Conversely, if you're looking for something with flavor and heat, I would recommend Secret Aardvark Habanero Sauce or Dirty Dicks. If you really want to go off the deep end Mad Dog 357 is also really tasty and definitely made me cry the first time I had it because the heat factor took me off guard.

u/XXL_Fat_Boy · 7 pointsr/tacobell

They sell it at most supermarkets in the Asian/ethnic aisle

u/AwkwardBurritoChick · 7 pointsr/recipes

Some supermarkets have a premade mojo sauce, Goya's is pretty good.. It's my usual go to with slow cooking a pork butt or shoulder, with a layer of chopped garlic and onion on the bottom of the slow cooker. Works every time.

u/hot_carl_satan · 7 pointsr/recipes

Thai red curry:

  1. Paste (
  2. Coconut milk.
  3. Chicken (or shrimp and muscles)
  4. Fresh basil.
  5. Grape tomatoes
  6. Pineapple (fresh cubed).
  7. Sliced carrots.

    On low heat with a little oild, mix the curry with enough water to dissolve it. Slowly add coconut milk and water to bring it to fat content, taste, and consistency. Set the chicken on top, but don't mix (I don't know why, but this is what my mother-in-law does). Let it cook slowly and add water or coconut milk to preference after the chicken is cooked. Turn it off, put a lid on, and let it sit for a few hours.

    Before serving, bring to a slow boil. Drop the fruits and vegetables in and kill the heat. Serve it with rice.

    EDIT: Add sliced jalapenos for more spice, but add them a little earlier than the vegetables/fruit.

    BIG OH F**K EDIT: You need fish sauce if the curry isn't already salty. Get some and and salt to taste. If the curry is already salty, then add just a little to bind the flavors shortly after adding the meat.
u/Wakagoshi · 7 pointsr/GifRecipes

There is nothing wrong with using a good pre made curry paste. Maesri is a good brand with authentic Thai ingredients. You can buy it on Amazon if you can't find it locally. Beware, it is pretty hot.

u/twlscil · 7 pointsr/IndianFood

Best butter chicken recipe I have, that gets me closest to restaurant is the Taste of India Butter Chicken Paste... I usually add a can of coconut cream and a 1/3 cup of water to it.

u/Cpt_Mango · 7 pointsr/MealPrepSunday

I've been lurking on this sub for a while. I bet you guys would love Japanese curry. Japanese curry is dead easy, and delicious. Just boil some meat and veg (carrots, celery, potatoes, apples for me) and add a block of S&B curry roux. I'd go for the hot, which isn't hot at all. (BTW that price is steep) Bulk it out with rice. It's great.

u/smep · 7 pointsr/leagueoflegends

For reference, it looks like this is the sauce they used.

u/team_pancakes · 7 pointsr/vegan

the bloating is likely from all of the sodium. not sure what's in the veggie broth, but most broths are very high sodium, and miso has a ton of sodium. Most asian style sauces (like soy sauce) do. If you want a similar sauce for veggies that's lower sodium, check out coconut aminos. Their garlic sauce is even lower sodium and better IMO. it's garlicky and a little spicy.

u/shawarma_llama · 6 pointsr/AskCulinary

Pure capsaicin

Edit: OK, that stuff is probably bunk.

But have you tried Dave's Scorpion Pepper or Naga Jolokia sauce? I once splashed some of his Naga Jolokia sauce on my arm, it made a raised, pink burn that lasted for 4 or 5 days.

u/deadkennedy · 6 pointsr/boston

If taste is optional and you're just seeking pain, DIY might be the best route.

Make your own wings, but use Pure Cap to make the sauce instead of like Frank's Red Hot or whatever.

Pain will be certain and your butthole will hate you.

u/foetus_lp · 6 pointsr/slowcooking

shred that same pork, put it on a cookie sheet in a 400 degree oven for about 20 minutes to crisp up, slap it on some warm corn tortillas and top with home made pico de gallo, and you have awesome carnitas. i make them like this all the time. you can also marinade the pork in Mojo Criollo for 24 hours prior to cooking.

u/almadison · 6 pointsr/UpliftingNews

Make butter chicken at home! I have this coming to me every few months through Amazon subscription!

u/punkinale · 6 pointsr/IndianFood

Trust me. Buy this:

  1. Add oil to a pan (1 or 1.5 tbps)
  2. Add chopped onions, garlic, and a bit of ginger
  3. Reduce onions until transulucent
  4. Add tomatoes and allow to cook
  5. Add a packet of this Kitchens of India paste and mix well
  6. Add chicken and 1/2 cup of water and allow the chicken to cook on low heat
  7. Add more water (you can use cream or milk) until the gravy is as thin as you like

    Trust me... I've been trying to make curries at home for the last 10 years. I've tried many recipes, from scratch fresh ground spices, to boxed spices, and even other pastes. This brand has become a staple for me now. I can whip up a dish in 30 minutes and it's better than a lot of restaurants around me. My favorite paste they sell is the chicken curry, tastes like an authentic dhaba style curry you can get in India.

    ps) I have fond memories of helping my dad make "chicken" (usually this meant desi style curry) growing up and it wasn't until I became older that I appriciated how much I enjoyed that.
u/RetroFutureKid · 6 pointsr/Hawaii

>Make a good gravy

I'm sure y'all will hate me for this. I use S&B Golden Curry sauce bricks & chicken/beef better-than-bouillon for my loco moco gravy.

I caramelize onions in my instant pot with a little baking powder as well to add to the gravy mix.

u/DrClem · 6 pointsr/AskCulinary

Curry would be a good bet. Pick your asian style (Chinese curry, japanese curry, indian curry, thai curry, etc). Curry lasts a while and you don't have the problem of the food getting soggy with sauce since it's saucy to begin with. Get fried tofu instead of meat for protein to keep cost low. For a simple, easy, quick batch of curry, look for this at your local grocer:

Amazon's price seems to be very high.

u/thevoiceofzeke · 6 pointsr/fitmeals

Fun fact: The macros can be improved a bit by substituting a little bit of honey for the brown sugar, and Huy Fong chili garlic sauce for the Frank's stuff (which I think has added sugar, no?). That's how I usually make it, and I've never felt like it lacked sweetness.

I've also made basically this same recipe without coconut milk, slaw, or lentils, and it's still awesome. Try adding thinly sliced jalapeños and grated carrots sometime. It's excellent.

If I have room for carbs, my favorite way to eat it is over long grain white rice (skipping any non-vegetable carbs in the recipe, obviously). Without room for carbs, try serving it over cauliflower rice. Green Giant sells frozen riced cauliflower now to save you the trouble of ricing it yourself. It's pretty good.

u/hWatchMod · 6 pointsr/AMA

Here is a recipe to the best thing I've personally created.


  • Chili garlic sauce (careful, this is spicy. If you over do it, add more sugar/soy, can easily happen if you reduce too much)
  • Tamari (fancy soy sauce with less salt and more flavor)
  • rice wine vinger (couple splashes)
  • Seaseme seed soil, about 1tbsp, huge flavor
  • fresh minced up garlic and ginger.
  • 1-2 tbsp of brown sugar to taste, can get too sweet quickly so make sure to be tasting after adding.

    Mix that all up in a bowl with a whisk and simmer on low heat in a pan.


    I've done this with chicken and beef, but beef came out my favorite

  • 1 package of stir fry beef, or fajita beef. any small cut beef would work, and cheap beef would work well too from how its being prepared.

    To cook, refrigerate the meat so its cold, then take it out and put it in a gallon ziplock bag. In the bag with the meat add corn starch (enough so everything is throughly coated) and black pepper. Toss the beef up so its nice and coated.

    Then, pour the beef and powder into a spagetti strainer to knock off all the excess corn startch. You are not making a crush or batter, just coat it.

    Next, heat up a pan of vegetable oil. Once its hot where when you drip a drop of water and it starts bubbling, toss the meat in. Let it fry for about 2-3min, when you are stiring it around with your spoon or whatever, you will feel it start to harder. As soon as it "feels" crispy, take it out. (dont worry, it will soften)

    Let this dry on a cooling rack or paper towels.


    I love the Asian noodles, you can get them in a package. To cook, use a very large pan/wok or electric skillet thats going to be where you combine everything in. Heat up the pan, put some sesame seed oil in the pan, then the noodles. Toss them around until they heat up and remove. Set aside the noodles. (cook maybe 2-3min)

    Rice would also work here, although cooking instructions for rice should be followed.


    Easiest option is to buy a bag of stir fry mix. I usually combine some stir fry veggies with fresh garlic and a fresh quartered onion. (i like big chunks of onion for this, but cut to the size you prefer).

    The stir fry veggies are generally broccoli, carrots, water chestnuts, red bell peppers and peas.

    To cook: heat up a pan, use a big one. If you dont have a large pan an electric skillet WITH SIDES will work. This has to be big enough to fit all of the veggies and meat.

    After the pan is heated up, add a splash of vegetable oil and some sesame seed soil to the pan. Toss in all of the veggies and keep them moving while they heat up. After they look heated up, add some of the sauce you made earlier. Toss them around so they are coated but not dripping or soggy.

    The veggie part you dont want to take longer then 5-8min so you have crunchy veggies at the end.

    The Finish

    Finally, the fun part. First, add your noodles back to the pan, then add some of your sauce, and toss them around so they are coated. Then add your veggies and beef to the pan. Toss this around until everything looks distributed. Now, add more of your sauce to taste, toss and enjoy!

    IDK what you'd call it, but we call it spicy stir fry beef with noodles lol

    A few tips... dont add too many veggies where you "dilute" the amount of noodles you have. Dont over cook the veggies or they get too soft. Chili-garlic sauce is SPICY. Sesame seed oil is VERY STRONG. Use those two in moderation but for huge flavor!

    Also, please let me know if you try this i'd love to know what other people thought of it.

AOTD1: I love spring. Chicago can be shit for a few months of the year, but when it's above 50°F and sunny, this city is the best in the world (I'm biased).

AOTD2: I grew up in a very spice-averse home. My mother is a self-described "spice weeny" so I never really did hot foods. Then I met my wife and she put sriracha and other hot sauces on everything and I felt like I had to learn or she would never love me. And I did learn and now I love hot sauce. There are currently at least 4 different hot sauces in my house.

  • Cholula - classic vinegar red hot sauce (way better than tabasco if you ask me)
  • Sriracha - the Huy Fong kind, accept no immitations
  • Green Chilli Sauce - Some off brand from Marianos (midwest grocer chain)
  • Ardvark habenero - it's freaking great

    [Edit] I just remembered we did have one "spicy" thing in my house growing up. This local radio station put out a mustard (I have no idea why) and it was called "Bite Your Butt Mustard" and we bought a bunch. It was actually really good, like a slightly horseradishy honey mustard, but almost more honey than mustard.
u/MikeyMadness · 5 pointsr/food

Dave's Insanity Sauce. Incredibly hot - use your own sauce and add a small amount to test, say 1/8th tsp for starters (seriously!), and go from there. This stuff is extrememly hot. If memory serves it uses extract, making its Scoville count much higher than a regular hot sauce. I've seen it in grocery stores, so it shouldn't be too hard to find.

Good luck!

u/AmadeusZull · 5 pointsr/IAmA

On amazon they occasionally have 40-50% off "Kitchen of India" seasoning. They are AWESOME!! I recommend the butter chicken curry and chicken curry seasoning. keep checking for the next sale.

I mean kind of. One of the chemistry teachers brought in this hot sauce and was giving it to any of his students who wanted to try it.

its rated at 7.1 Million Scoville Units

for reference
Tabasco sauce is just about 2,500 Scoville Units

Jalapeno's are 2,500 - 8,000

and depending on which kind of Habanero Op used that pepper can range from 100,000 to 577,000

/u/facepalm_guy is referring to the kutbil-ik. It's a little smoky but not as much as the black label one.

El Yuc's chipotle sauce is really good as well. It's milder than their habanero sauces, but the flavor is on point for anything you want a smoky chipotle flavor.

I know somebody who tried. He likes spicy food so he decided to try it. A very small amount rendered his food inedible. Apparently it doesn't have a good flavor and it's way hotter than any hot sauce you'd actually use. He texted me the next day to say that taking a shit that morning was one of the most painful experiences of his life. Maybe if you used just 1 drop of it in a large pot of food it wouldn't be too hot, but then again why wouldn't you just buy some hot sauce? it's cheaper and it tastes better. This stuff is plenty hot:

I usually cook it with Goya Mojo Criollo (available at the grocery store in the Mexican food aisle, don't buy it online). Marinating it overnight and grilling it works well. Lately I've been throwing about 2lbs of chicken breasts into an Instant Pot, sprinkling them with dry mojo seasoning, and adding half a bottle of Mojo, and cooking at high pressure for whatever the recommended time is (I think like 14 minutes?), then shredding it and using it for enchiladas (La Victoria enchilada sauce is good).

Idk how many of you all watch Hot Ones on YouTube, but I just ate some of Da Bomb Beyond Insanity, and holy shit that was rough. The taste is very bitter and goes away quickly, leaving nothing in your mouth but straight heat that gets worse and worse as time goes on. When I first ate it, it wasn't so bad but THAT SHIT'S DECEIVING. I cried for a full 10 minutes, and the pain didn't go away until 20 minutes. I was physically shaking all over (hands, arms, legs), I have the chills now, I hear a ringing in my ears, and some mild heart burn.

  • 3 lbs frozen chicken breasts
  • 2 lbs frozen vegetables (e.g., harvest hodgepodge)
  • 3.5 oz curry paste (e.g., butter chicken curry paste)
  • about 1 cup water

    Add the chicken and vegetables to the pot, use the water to loosely dissolve the curry paste, and then pour the soupy paste-and-water mixture into the pot.

    It comes out like a very, very chunky sauce which is best served over rice or pasta.

I like keeping this on hand for a super easy weeknight dinner plus lunches. I'll add chicken thighs, chick peas, onions, and spinach and season to taste.

Another one I like is this chicken and biscuits by tasty Delicious during the winter but not the healthiest meal. I just bake the biscuits while making it instead of they're way.

I'll keep a bag of frozen stir fry veggies and chicken thighs for chicken stir fry and rice or this stewed chicken Drumsticks are great in this recipe too and are cheaper too. Adding a carribean hot sauce/spices to this one helps a ton too over just red pepper flakes.

I agree that this seems like a bad idea, and depending on your guest it could be taken as disrespectful. If you are set on doing it, definitely try to practice your meal before she arrives so you don't have a disaster on your hands!

I recommend making boxed curry. It's a good, filling winter meal and you can customize it with the protein and veggies of your choice. I usually go for Golden Curry, you can order it online or find it in the "ethnic" aisle of a regular supermarket, since you said there are no Asian markets near you. In addition to being tasty and easy to put together, it's a casual meal so it will be lower-pressure.

u/eats_food · 4 pointsr/xxketo

I also have a lot of food allergies.

Keeping meals simple has helped me a lot (not just from an allergy perspective, but diet adherence, time management, etc.) Most of our meals we build around one main protein and 1-2 vegetable side dishes.

I've found searching paleo and whole30 type recipe sites and books helpful for inspiration. While some recipes will be too high carb (or need to be modified) it gives you a lot of basics to start with.

For my carb eating husband I might withhold some of the fat from my meal and add it only to my portion, or make cauliflower rice for me and regular rice for him, or serve my sauce over vegetables instead of noodles. If you keep the carb mostly separate (rice, pasta, potatoes, starchy veg) it is easy to make it work for everyone.

Our primary vegetable side dish rotation is broccoli, green beans, leafy greens (spinach especially), asparagus, cauliflower, snap peas, squash, mushrooms, bell peppers, and brussels sprouts. I often buy 2 or 3 large bags of vegetables per week and mix and match into our meals, then do something different the next week.

For the meats I do a lot of chicken (roasted, fried, stir fried, curried, grilled,) pork (pulled with home made BBQ sauce, roasted, grilled, fried), burgers (beef, turkey, or beyond beef soy/gluten free pea protein), steaks, beef stew (with lots of mushroom and smaller amounts of lower carb starchy veg such as rutabaga), sausages (pork, beef, turkey, or chicken), ground beef (taco salad, stuffed peppers), and sometimes fish (usually just tuna or white fish tacos.)

Some substitutions you might make (but I'm not a doctor so check with yours):

u/Kibology · 4 pointsr/Cooking

Wikipedia suggests that Italians use an oil made from olive oil and Calabrian chilis:

...I don't know exactly what sort of hot oil's expected for the Roberta's "bee sting pizza" you showed, but if I had to hazard a guess it would be that.

Honestly, I suspect that any sort of chili oil made from any chilis in any oil will work, if the intent is just to add a little heat (in addition to the hot soppresata.)

You can make your own chili oil by heating up some vegetable oil and then pouring it over dried chili flakes. I've been known to heat up cheap olive oil (a highly-processed one is best for this, not extra-virgin) and pour it over "pizza pepper" flakes to make it. (You have to use a sufficient quantity of chili flakes to keep the oil from incinerating them. Note that it may come out shockingly spicy -- after it cools down you can mix a little of the chili oil with plain oil to dilute it.) It's a common homemade Chinese condiment, so a Google search on "chili oil" will turn up many recipes and tutorial videos, some plain, and some with extra ingredients.

Here's a (rather different) store-bought Chinese hot oil topping I like on my pizzas:

Stores that carry Chinese products should have it -- the brand name is "Lao Gan Ma" and the specific product is "Spicy Chili Crisp". It's relatively mild as chili oils go (I could eat it all by itself!) and it's loaded with crunchy things (such as black beans) and salt and MSG. It's a whole bunch of comfort-food flavors all at once. But it's probably not remotely like what Roberta's pizza uses.

u/TexasWhiskey_ · 4 pointsr/sousvide

145 for 2 hours, generally lazy and just throw some chupicabra seasoning in the bag.

If we're eating it right there, then simple pan fry. Otherwise we use them for salad and so I don't even bother with the frying as it'll just be chopped up.

Also, I started toying around with throwing in mae ploy curry paste in the bag, with no other ingredients. Tried it once so far, and is super easy mock-thai curry. Not quite there yet, still working on experiments but it's been great.

Just don't add a lot of juice/sauce to it when it cooks. Sauces added in SV just leach flavor out of the meat, it doesn't imbibe them into it. You make meat flavor sauce, not sauce flavored meat.

u/PC__LOAD__LETTER · 4 pointsr/EatCheapAndHealthy


Curry paste

  • You can buy this on Amazon
  • Note that all but the Yellow curry paste from Mae Ploy contain shrimp paste, so keep that in mind.

    Coconut Cream
  • Buy something like this at the store; prices are absurd on Amazon, so you'll want to shop local. You can usually find something for $1-$2 per can:
  • You want coconut cream/milk in a CAN. Not watery, watered down 'coconut milk' packaged in a box for drinking, this won't work. The can will be filled with a little bit of coconut water and the rest will be a solid cream that melts when you cook it.


    All you have to do is put a little oil in a saucepan and turn the heat to medium. Put 1-2 tablespoon of the curry paste in the oil and let it simmer for a bit, making sure that you play around with it and ensure that it's getting heated thoroughly. After 5 or so minutes of this (the curry paste begins to get ever so slightly golden brown), lower the heat to a simmer and dump the jar of coconut cream into the saucepan. As the cream melts, stir the mixture well. Let simmer for 5 - 10 more minutes.


    You now have curry that tastes exactly like it does in a restaurant (most restaurants actually use curry pastes.)

    Combine with your protein of choice, some veggies, pour over rice, whatever you want.
u/grewestr · 4 pointsr/grilling

Not OP, but I make wings regularly on the kettle. For regular wings:
-Set up kettle like OP, coals on one side
-Set all wings skin side down on a sheet with paper towel under it to dry the skin
-Sear wings skin side down over coals for 1-3 minutes until slightly charred
-Flip and sear other side for 1 minute
-Transfer to other side of grill skin side up
-Place lid on with vent open and directly over the wings
-Wait 5-20 minutes depending on how you like the wings done then toss them in sauce.

This gives the best of both worlds. A nice charred sear that makes the skin super tender and a indirect cooking period to crisp everything up. I usually marinade half of them in a mixture of Sabauce and Aardvark for some extra flavor. I've seen people have really good results using the Vortex as well.

u/coughcough · 3 pointsr/hotsaucerecipes

Yeah! IMHO a good hot sauce balances heat and flavor. From the look of the box, you are getting a good mix of hot, flavorful peppers. Here is a very simple hot sauce recipe. While it doesn't say it, I would recommend you run it through a fine mesh strainer and then mix in a pinch of Xanthan gum (you can find individual packets for like $0.99 in the baking isle of your grocery store). You only need a pinch - a little Xanthan gum goes a long way.

Personally, I would avoid the extracts. They add heat without bringing anything else to the party. Of course, if heat is your endgame it will definitely get you there.

Just in case you are looking for some additional sauces, Da Bomb is really, really spicy. My personal favorite (balancing flavor and heat really well, IMO) is Zombie Apocalypse.

Hope this helps!

Going home in a bit to make my first attempt at thai green curry. note that i'll be using a paste.

My current plan is dice and cook chicken, remove, dice and cook eggplant, onion, carrot, bell pepper, wait for them to soften, then add coconut milk (14oz?) and a half a jar of paste and then simmer for 10 mins or so then add the chicken back along with soft veggies like maybe snow peas? Then simmer 10 more mins and top with basil and bean sprouts.

I've never made a thai dish before so let me know if you got a killer veggie combo, I'm just sort of making it up

Butter chicken!
I don't make it from scratch but I use this packet of seasoning:
I also add about a cup of red lentils and add extra water for additional protein and fiber. You can skip the butter and cream if you want... or maybe just add a splash of half and half... I leave out the butter and don't even notice. Sometimes when cauliflower is in season i'll use that instead of chicken. I love this stuff!

Sandwiches... thinly sliced or pounded down with a mallet and cooked in a skillet. Add a favorite bread, lettuce, tomatoes, cheese, etc. I hit up the salad bar at the store for toppings sometimes too.

There probably are versions of it in the "Asian" food section of your regular grocery store. By the soy sauce/teriyaki sauce/baby corn etc section. My version of Kroger has this which is kind of the Hamburger Helper brand of curry blocks but it's still pretty tasty.

We break the blocks and mix them with hamburger when we do tinfoil dinners when we're camping and stuff.

u/x3n0s · 3 pointsr/JapaneseFood

If you've got an Asian grocery store near you they will most likely carry hondashi, and may have what you need to make dashi, kombu,, and katsuobushi, (it will come pre-shredded in a bag). Dashi is one of the easiest stocks to make, only takes about 30 minutes or so,

The Japanese do have teir own version of curry and it is delicious. I think they got it from the British so it's a re-interpretation of a re-interpretation. It's one of the most popular foods in Japan. It's usually made with pork, but if you're going to make it with katsu, make it vegetarian. You can buy a box of curry roux at most Asian grocery stores, to use. Basically, take a pot, add a bit of oil (for Asian food I like peanut), cook some white onions in the oil, I also add some sliced garlic which is not traditional, add some potato and carrots (you may want to cook them half way first), add water, simmer for about 20 minutes, add the curry roux, stir it in the simmering water and it will break down, and then continue for 5 minutes or so. The curry roux will have instructions on the back of the box, it's super easy. This is the basic version but there are all sorts of variation, some put in grated apple or even coffee in it! It's my favorite thing to eat with katsu.

The easiest way is to buy the roux blocks like this:

u/Aperture_Kubi · 3 pointsr/EatCheapAndHealthy


Don't need to watch a rice cooker.

Cooking takes as long as it takes to cook some choice meat and veggies in a large pan, plus five or so minutes of simmering in a break off of this plus some milk to make a sauce. Pepper and hot sauce to taste.

For meats I've done fish balls, pork, chicken, or sausage.

Veggies I've done combinations of spinach, baby bok choy, cabbage, bell pepper, onion, carrot. Traditionally I think potato works too but I have a thing of rice and potato in the same meal, though I could make an exception for sweet potato.

I'm sure someone can chime in for a healthier way to do curry sauce.

u/daedalus96 · 3 pointsr/loseit

I know this isn't too much different, but making a curry with Chicken (use boneless skinless thighs, breasts are relatively flavorless), cauliflower, and carrots. I usually use 2lbs meat and 1lb of each vegetable. Then either 2 of the 3.5oz packages or one of the 8.4oz packages of Golden Curry sauce mix. This made 8 meals split evenly across 28oz meal prep containers, so easy to store and refrigerate/freeze.

I just make some rice and pour the curry over, microwave for about a minute. It's tasty, good mix of flavor and vegetables, and probably about 500-600 calories total.

For reference

u/ukatama · 3 pointsr/JapaneseFood

Not the exact same thing, but an approxamation (or a generic Japanese-style curry) is fairly easy to do.

Just get yourself one of these.

Make a sofrito with garlic, onions, celery, carrots. Make sure you caramelize the veg. Add meat of choice, brown. Add water (or better yet some stock), and the curry roux. Stir to dissolve, and cook for 30 minutes. Add a couple teaspoons of soy sauce at the end, and you're golden.

The topping is easy too. Get a pork chop (or any other flat piece of meat). Season, coat with flour, dip in egg, coat with panko or breadcrumbs. Deep fry, and serve with the curry.

Edit : Looking around on some Japanese websites, it seems Cocoichi has this trick of adding a bit of peanut butter (like a couple of teaspoons per serving) to give the roux an added depth.

This isn't the best curry I've ever eaten, but it is BY FAR the best one I've ever made:

Cauliflower, Cashew, Pea, and Coconut Curry


  • 1 (1-inch) piece fresh ginger, peeled and chopped

  • 4 garlic cloves, chopped

  • 1 green chile, roughly chopped (seeded if you prefer less heat) [NOTE: I often replace this with a tablespoon or so of Huy Fong's chile garlic sauce]

  • Kosher salt

  • 4 Tbsp canola oil

  • 2 large onions, finely chopped

  • 1 Tbsp tomato paste

  • 1 1/2 tsp ground coriander

  • 1 1/4 tsp ground cumin

  • 1/2 tsp chile powder

  • 1 large head cauliflower, broken into bite-size florets

  • 1 14 oz. can unsweetened coconut milk

  • 4 oz. unsalted cashews (about 3/4 C)

  • 1/2 C frozen peas

  • 1/2 tsp garam masala

  • 1 small bunch cilantro, leaves chopped, for serving

  • 1 lemon wedge, for serving

  • cooked basmati rice, for serving


  • Step 1 - Place the ginger, garlic and green chile in a mortar and pestle with a pinch of salt. Mash until a paste forms and set aside. Alternately, finely chop the ginger, garlic and green chile together, sprinkle with a pinch of salt, then mash into a coarse paste using the flat portion of your chef’s knife.

  • Step 2 - In a large skillet with a lid, heat 3 tablespoons oil over medium. Cook the onions until golden, about 10 minutes. Add the ginger paste and cook, stirring, until fragrant, 3 to 4 minutes.

  • Step 3 - Stir in the tomato paste, coriander, cumin, chile powder and 1 1/4 teaspoons salt. Stir in the cauliflower and coconut milk and bring to a simmer. Reduce the heat to low, cover and cook until the cauliflower is tender, 10 to 12 minutes.

  • Step 4 - Meanwhile, heat the remaining 1 tablespoon oil in a small skillet over medium. Fry the cashews, stirring occasionally, 2 minutes. Transfer to a plate to cool. [Note: Instead of frying the cashews, I always just roast them in the oven at 400º for ~10 minutes]

  • Step 5 - Add the peas and garam masala to the cauliflower mixture and cook, stirring, 5 minutes. Season to taste with salt.

  • Step 6 - Top the curry with the cashews, cilantro and a squeeze of lemon just before serving. Serve with a big steaming bowl of basmati rice.


  • I would strongly recommend doubling all the spices. I copied the amounts as written in the recipe, but I always double the spices when I make it.

  • Every time I make this, the first thing I do is cut up the cauliflower, toss it with some olive oil, salt, pepper, and curry powder and roast it in the oven at 400º while I prep the rest of the ingredients.

My stomach was acting up pretty bad about an hour ago. For a moment i thought I was going to vomit. Believe me ... vomiting is the absolute worst.

I'd highly recommend eating something like raisin bran to help push the capsaicin through your system faster.

If you're even a little bit constipated it will just sit in your stomach and intestines and it's no good. I don't know if it's the stomach acid going nuts or the capsaicin or both.

Basically I find that when I eat something beyond my tolerance level and I find it punishing like those youtube videos.. that a few days after I've recovered my tolerance is way higher.

I got this and it's pretty damn hot.

I poured a bunch of it on some of my food and it kicked my ass. I had my SO have a little bit on a toothpick and that was enough to get me in trouble. (and she has a higher tolerance than most people)

Now I can deal with that stuff really well. I can even handle a good amount of the Cajohn's nothing beyond which I also got off of amazon.

In order to get to my next level I'd like to get some sauce in the 4 million range. I'd really like to work up to something like the source, but it's really expensive and frankly it's a bit intimidating.

Fellow instant-noodle lover here. If you find your local Asian market - the legit one that Asian immigrants go to - you can find a ton of stuff to kick up your ramen. Cheap veg, we're talking 3 lb bags of baby bok choy for $2, fitty-cent green onion, and hella cheap ground pork, something like $2/lb. Also, delicious tinned fish (under $2).

But the best shit is the sauce aisle.

Good ramen comes with several packets: freeze dried veg, powder seasoning, and the grease packet. The ten cent stuff only comes with the powder. To make up for the grease packet, you can get either sesame oil or chili oil. You can get a tub of curry paste for under $3 and make curry noodles; one tub should yield 30-40 servings. Or Korean gojuchang.

This is my favorite and it's around $4 a jar in the market.

You can also save up any fat left from cooking, like bacon drippings or chicken fat, freeze it, and use it to silk up your ramen.

It makes a ten cent bag into at least a $2.50 bag.

This and lots of it. You should be able to get it at all asian supermarkets.

I like to use white pepper and occasionally some sesame oil for lighter pork/chicken flavored soups. If you can get Shichimi Togarashi, that's probably one of the best spices. It's more commonly sprinkled over udon but it'll work nicely with just about any soup.

u/therealcersei · 3 pointsr/Cooking

I do it in stages for a stir-fry. First the ginger-garlic paste, plus lemongrass if it's Thai or Vietnamese, plus the vegetables. I may prepare them differently depending on whether I'm doing a "ding" dish, but in any case, veggies first. then I remove them from the wok. Then the meat, cooking fast and hot. If I'm doing a curry, I throw in a tablespoon or two of the curry paste with the meat, and cook for a minute or two.

Then combine the meat and veg, add the sauce (or coconut milk, if you're doing a curry), toss a few times, and done, unless I have to bubble it for a few minutes to reduce/thicken or to concentrate the flavors of a curry (adding cashews/unsalted peanuts plus chiffonade of coriander/cilantro at the end, if it's a curry).

I don't ever add water. Teriyaki is only for marinade for me

u/CotyCorvette · 3 pointsr/hotsauce

I agree with this 99% of the time, but Aardvark goes great on both eggs and fish tacos. Out of the hundreds of hot sauces I've tried, aardvark is by far the most applicable to any situation.

>it was uncomfortable, but it was also exhilarating. There was a little adrenaline boost. I felt high, and my consciousness was affected in a weird yet exciting way.

welcome to the club, friend.

a couple recommendations based on personal experience.

Ghost pepper: 1 of them INSTANTLY can be recommended. ADOBOLOCO HAMAJANG is INSANELY delicious. if there is a cost plus world market near you, they probably have it. if you are lucky, they are in the clearance section. manageable heat. EXCELLENT flavor. its more of a pepper water than your traditional hot sauce but w/e.

habanero: secret aardvark habanero hot sauce is by far my favorite habanero sauce. i would avoid "DA BOMB" like the plague. literally no flavor at all, and it just feels like you are stabbing your tongue with a hot knife.

Trinidad scorpion: personally, i cheated with this one. i am PROBABLY the only person out there with an actual BOTTLE of the Buffalo Wild Wings "Scorpion Rum" hot sauce. scorpion peppers mixed with meyers dark rum makes for a SERIOUSLY delicious sauce. shame it as a limited time only deal...

i actually havent had a sauce with carolina reapers in it, so i cant recommend anything. but if you stay here long enough, you wont just try one or 2 of them, you will probably find a GOOD one.

alright, so I'm a bit weird and actually have a variation of this sauce all the time on everything. I really like chilli, my brother grew naga jolokias and I kind of grew up being fed whatever was the newest hottest pepper in the world. So...this stuff is ok (but, importantly it tastes really really good). if you want hot. like excruciatingly ball shrivelingly, arse clenchingly, face meltingly hot. you need to try this:

it tastes like utter shite. but it will kill you, and then haunt your family after you are gone. it is fucking disturbing.

u/sallyfreakingeasy · 2 pointsr/EatCheapAndHealthy

Teriyaki sauce is just water, soy sauce, garlic, brown sugar, ginger, and corn starch (for thickness, that's optional)! It may not be the most intricate of Asian dishes, but throw it on some veggies, meat, and rice and it's a tasty stir fry. I throw in some cayenne for some kick. I got 1-to-1 with the water and soy sauce, then add the other ingredients to taste. Then do like a tablespoon of corn starch, mix it with another cup of water beforehand, dump it in, mix mix mix until it has the desired texture, and you're all set.

Also, fried rice is really simple. Cook your meat in a wok or large pan, throw in your veggies and whatever spices you want (I use Mae Ploy which is available at my local Wal Mart), then add your already cooked rice and a little soy sauce and some scrambled eggs.

Might not be the healthiest of recipes, but it's a start and it's crazy cheap.

EDIT: the price zombie below is for quite a large bottle. I get the smaller ones that'll last me three or four uses (cooking for two) for about $2 or so.

u/MonkeyPilot · 2 pointsr/food

Friday night and need to use up some leftover stuff, so I fried it! Since there were just 4 of us, we didn't need too much (especially fried food), and only made two dishes.

First, tofu fries. Couldn't be simpler: cut up some firm tofu into sticks (or cubes, if you prefer), and dredge in plain corn starch. Fry for 5-6 minutes at 375F. I have a fry-daddy, but you could easily do this in a pan too. They come out hot, crispy, and light. Great on their own or with just about any dip you like. (My wife enjoyed them "buffalo style" with blue cheese and Frank's Red Hot.

Second, pork wontons. Buy some wonton wrappers- a pack of 50 is like $2. For the stuffing I used 12oz ground pork, mixed with about 3 chopped scallions and 1 inch nub of ginger, ground. That's it! Stuff each wonton with about 1 to 1 1/2 tsp filling, seal with beaten egg, and wrap as shown. Fry for 1-2 min at 375. Again, any sauce you like (i prefer Mae Ploy! ).

Happy Frying!

u/CycoPenguin · 2 pointsr/ketorecipes

Alright, here's my go-to pork taco semi-carnitas style marinade.

  • You need some Mojo. (Or some lemon and lime juice)

  • Cumin, chili powder, ground mustard, pepper
  • Yellow onion
  • Minced garlic
  • Cilantro

    Cube up your pork into about 1-2 inch chunks (you didn't say what cut, but I'm guessing a 'butt' or shoulder cut).

    Coat the cubes in a mixture of the above seasonings (minus the Mojo and garlic).

    Dice the onions (use a different knife)

    In a slow cooker on high, (or a dutch oven on med-low on the stove) put some bacon grease in the bottom.

    Put diced onions and garlic (about a tablespoon) in the grease. Cook them up till slightly soft.

    Put cubed pork in slow cooker/dutch oven. Add about a cup of mojo, turn heat to low.

    Walk away for 6-8 hours (unless you're doing this on the stove, then you may not want to leave that on). Have a beer or something.

    Drain some of the fat/water mixture from pot.

    The pork should now be REALLY tender and easy to break apart/shred. Shred the pork on a cookie sheet lined with alum foil.

    Put your oven to broil, and then put the shredded pork under the broiler for a minute or two (don't burn it, just want it crispy)

    Take pork from pan, put on taco salad, cheese 'tortilla', or just eat it straight out of the pan. That shit is good.

    Have another beer.

u/thecal714 · 2 pointsr/smoking

I marinade them in mojo and a toss in a canned chipotle pepper or two. They're a huge hit with the family.

u/actioncomicbible · 2 pointsr/vegetarian

>Bob's Red Mill Gluten bag a few times, and I think that it always turns out bland and under-seasoned.

I definitely agree with this. I've used the Chicken Style Seitan recipe and it's definitely solid.

I'll include my recipe but I wanted to see what other people used since Seitan isn't really posted a whole lot on this sub.

I actually, this might sound sort of blasphemous, go with a bit more liquid when I steam it.

But I use 2 to 2.25 cups of Vital Wheat Gluten, .5 cup of Nutritional Yeast, 1 cup of Veggie Stock, 1 cup of Mojo Marinade, a splash of liquid smoke, and a tbsp of olive oil. For the spices, sorry this is going to have no measurements, Garlic Powder, Onion Powder, Adobo Seasoning (lightly), Tony Chachere's Cajun Seasoning (lightly), Chili Powder, Smoked Paprika, and whatever spice I feel like throwing in.

Knead that like crazy. When it's ready for steaming, wrap it in two sheets of tinfoil. Tootsie-roll tie it. And then steam it for 45min to an hour. Why longer than the ThatWasVegan recipe? It's because it's in one mass rather than chunks so it takes longer to cook all the way through. Honestly I sometimes just do a test and if it's a bit too...wet in the middle, I just throw it back on to steam for another 15 min.

I found this to create a more tender seitan which is perfect for sandwiches and it has a very smokey flavor that couples well with a very light spread (maybe some sort of flavored ranch spread, I use Halal Guys' White Sauce with some hot sauce mixed in to create a spicy tatziki sauce). Before I serve it, I pan fry it OR I dice it up and when it's crispy and little, it seriously is about 85% similar to bacon.

u/brick_tamlans_3dent · 2 pointsr/Austin

I understand where you're coming from, but sometimes... I like to marinate my meat... in this. Works well for chicken and pork too.

u/tornug · 2 pointsr/sandiego

Off the top of my head: Marinate some flank steak in mojo. You can find it in most Mexican food isles. You can make your own. 1 orange, 1 lemon, salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, olive oil. Cook steak how you like it. Make home made fries or get some five-guys fries, that's what I used to do. Use burrito size tortillas, you know the big flour tortillas. The hard part is the pico. Your going to have to find a recipe for that. I eye my ingredients (tomato, onion, cilantro, jalapeno, and lime) so I can't really help you there. And grate some colby jack or whatever cheese you like.

This is in my crockpot right now and I'm eating it over either broccoli or green beans with a half cup of rice. The sauce combines well with everything.

Here's a good spicy rub:

This is delicious and I only account for about a tablespoon of the marinade in my cals since there's always tons leftover:

For green beans, try sautéing with garlic and some Sambal chili paste. So good.

I've also seen some recipes where you use a 35 cal laughing cow wedge to make a cheese sauce for broccoli.

u/derekbox · 2 pointsr/4hourbodyslowcarb

Sambal. Same company, basically the same sauce, but no sugar. Sambal + sugar + puree = Sriracha

u/Anne657 · 2 pointsr/Cooking

Sure. I tend not to use American style hot sauces (like Tabasco) in stir fry, but that's mainly because I don't like the vinegary notes. I tend to go for either a basic chili garlic sauce or more frequently sambal olek which is similar but hotter. But you should use whichever you prefer.

u/InvisibleFacade · 2 pointsr/hotsauce

If you're looking for something lazy and cheap you can just mix pretty much any BBQ sauce with Sambal Oelek

u/dahmerlovesthetaste · 2 pointsr/AskCulinary

Do you have a bbq?

Throw just plain wings on the grill.
No butter or oil.

Crank it to around 425°f and turn wings often so they don’t burn.

Take off when they get browned and crispy.
Toss in a bowl with bit of salt.

-1/4 cup ranch

-1/4 cup Sambal

-1 tbsp melted butter.

Toss with wings.
Best ever.

If you buy gochujang (middle one), you shouldn't have to buy cho-gochujang as well. Gochujang is the main ingredient in cho-gochujang and can be made easily.

I, personally, don't find gochujang to be very spicy at all. If you just want spicy, try adding pepper powders, fresh peppers, hot oils, and hot sauces.

Have you tried getting pastes for the sauces? I really enjoy this one. I normally get it at Wegman's, but it looks like this is a good price from also. It tastes similar to the butter chicken I get at my favorite Indian restaurant if I add a little extra butter or cream.

I know it's not exactly Indian cooking when you use a paste, but it's a way to start an fill your cravings for a littler cheaper. You could try this on a day when you're working on your naan skills.

I get this spice mix from Amazon: Kitchens of India Paste for Butter Chicken Curry, 3.5-Ounce Boxes (Pack of 6)
I like it a lot, I also add potatoes and cauliflower sometimes for variety and it turned out well.

If I'm having a bad craving for biryani I'll get the Saffron Road biryani from the frozen food aisle. I have seen it at Target, at some organic food stores etc. They nailed the smell, the spice is on the lighter side but it will satiate my craving.

I made a Thai red curry sausage once with ground pork and rice, it tasted great and had a really nice spice to it. Might want to try Kitchens of India butter chicken, it's more of a paste than a pre-made sauce, lets you control the liquid in the recipe. I intend to make another curry sausage soon, going to do some protein with yellow curry with coconut cream and rice.

u/e_claire · 2 pointsr/recipes

Don't see a lot of Asian representation yet, so here are some of my go-to lazy dinners. Basically the "Hamburger Helper" type recipes for our Asian household.

Char Siu Chicken Wings:

1 packet Char Siu Seasoning Mix

1-2 lb chicken wings

Dump the mix on the wings and mix and make sure to NOT add water. Mix and cover the wings thoroughly. Leave it in the fridge for at least 4 hours. Bake at 400 for 45min on a rack. Broil for extra crispiness at the end if you like.

Bonus photo of the finished product, I like mine broiled a bit extra for that char flavor. Side of roasted brussel sprouts + rice.


Lazy Korean BBQ Chicken

1-2 lb boneless chicken thigh meat cut to 2-3 inch strips

Jar of Korean Chicken & Pork Marinade

Essentially the same instructions as the wings. Dump the marinade on the thigh meat and leave in the fridge for at least 3-4 hours. Bake at 400 for 45min on a rack, finish with a broil if you like. Great with a side of kim chi & rice.


Slow Cooker Japanese Curry

1 box Japanese Curry Sauce Mix

2-3 lb meat of choice (chunked for stew)

2 yellow onions, chopped

2 carrots, chopped

2 potatoes, large chunks

~6 cups water (however much you need to just cover the ingredients in the slow cooker)

Sear the meat first if you like. Dump all the ingredients into the slow cooker. Cook on low for about 8 hours. Serve over rice. Note that you could also prepare the curry sauce mix on the stovetop as per the instructions on the back of the box. I just normally go for the slow cooker method when I want to set it and forget it.

u/MangoCandy · 2 pointsr/PokemonSwordAndShield

Japanese curry is INCREDIBLY easy to make. You really can’t mess it up. You can buy brands like Golden Curry at most major retailers. Just a fair warning the spice levels are very mild across the board on most Japanese curry so if you like spicy food be prepared to add your own spices. All you are doing though is chopping some veggies and meat if you like and throwing it in a pot, done and done. Delicious meal that you can pack into the fridge and have for a couple nights :)

u/puppieeesss · 2 pointsr/EatCheapAndHealthy

If you can get your hands on Japanese curry cubes (Amazon sells it too but at a high markup ,) this particular type of curry goes really nicely with apples!

Saute onions with butter in a pot, add potato and carrot chunks (optional) along with cubed apples, then add water and let it simmer for half an hour before adding the curry. Let it cool for another 10 minutes, then eat with rice and broccoli!

u/refrained · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

I don't like any curry made with coconut milk or whatnot... but I absolutely ADORE Japanese curry. It's more like a spicy ginger/garlic stew. We buy these at our local Asian mart. Cook up some meat, add your choice of veggies (I like onions, carrots, and peppers, sometimes some mushrooms or broccoli depending on the day), cook that until it's all tender, then drop in the curry roux and let it melt through. It's warm and delicious. We serve it over some steamed rice and call it good. My absolute favourite meal in the world!

I like the America's Test Kitchen gumbo recipe. You can also add a bag of frozen cut okra near the end of cooking. This freezes quite well too.

Lidia's Italian Wedding Soup. Don't actually use 7 quarts of cold water, you'll overflow the pot. Just fill with water until your pot is 3/4 full. You can always add more later if you need. You also don't need to poach the meatballs separately, works fine just dropping them straight into the soup (probably adds more flavor to the soup itself). I actually use italian chicken sausage instead of pork, and I also add about 4 oz of tiny pasta (pastina or stelline) at the end. I grew up eating Progresso Chickarina soup, so chicken meatballs and pasta in the soup.

If you want a braised meat sort of thing, I like braised short ribs served over polenta with some broccoli rabe slowly sauteed with garlic and olive oil. Or either of the Taiwanese national dishes, beef noodle soup and braised pork belly (lu rou fan).

Or if you're feeling lazy, some standard Japanese curry from a box. I make it with onions, carrots, potatoes, and chicken and serve with rice. This is one that gets better the longer it sits. Some people just let it on the stove for a few days and reheat as needed (the food safety police do not endorse this practice).

u/Truhls · 2 pointsr/slowcooking

My two favorites are, chicken thighs/breasts + cream of mushroom soup + packet of onion dip mix. Eat it over rice ( it makes a fantastic gravy ) with veggies as a side.

Chicken breasts/de boned chicken thighs + 1 can coconut milk + good drizzle of honey, + 3-4 big spoonfuls of peanut butter + 1-2 cubes of curry powder ( i like this brand, green or gold work nicely ) + a few tbsp of thai red or green curry paste ( i usually use green ). Usually had 1-2 yellow/orange peppers as well. Such a good an easy curry to make.

u/rkt88edmo · 2 pointsr/food

I'd just order this <<--S&B medium hot golden curry and whip up a batch to test. Want to make it easy? Grab a pound of ground beef, and a poundish of frozen veggies (or just add carrot potato and onion) and cook it up per the directions on the box.

Generally, if I order "curry" at a "Japanese" or "asian" food place and it just tastes like it was made with the yellow powder from a red topped spice jar then it SUCKS. That sounds like what you have encountered. That in no way is representative of Japanese curry. I really enjoy indian and thai curries as well, but japanese curry will always be my favorite.

No worry, BEEF CURRY!

I use daves ghost pepper sauce on a lot of things. I'm aware that the hot sauce is significantly less hot than the actual pepper.

It doesn't matter if you're immune to hot or can't handle hot. It's the same for everyone.

I can put it on my burritos now like most people put taco bell mild sauce on their burrito. I barely notice the hotness anymore. But for the longest time, it would melt my face. I mean it felt as if my face was melting off. It's the only hot sauce I've ever been able to feel through the ENTIRE digestive process. It took me forever to build up tolerance, but I forced myself to suffer and now it's nothing to me.

If you get some of that hot sauce and force yourself to suffer, there is next to nothing out there that will be spicy to you. Thai food used to make me sweat like crazy. Not I can walk in and ask them to make it as spicy as possible and I barely notice. My tastbuds still work fine. I remember exactly what food tasted like before, and it still tastes exactly the same. (I've had a lot of people say I was burning my tastebuds off).

tl;dr: Go buy some of that hot sauce and build up tolerance. (start with one drop in a bowl of ramen and work your way up from there.) Force yourself to suffer.

I'm on a mission to find something hotter.

u/basiden · 2 pointsr/spicy

How would you compare the heat to other ghost sauces like Dave's?

Hey! I think this is the cheapest on my list, I had other things that were cheaper but they increased in price :( I'm not even sure what I'd do with rosemary, I don't usually use it in my cooking lol.

I'm not going to lie, I think what I want the MOST on my list is this! I'm a sucker for board games, and Risk has always been a favorite of mine. I love boardgames because you actually get to interact face to face with your friends and it reminds me of a time long long ago where people spent time talking and hanging out with friends instead of playing games, watching tv, or updating facebook statuses on their phone while talking to you. I have a group of friends that gets together once a week and we either go do trivia, board games, or just hang out and I think we'd love to play this sometime.

This one is interesting because it has different rules, and the board changes between games. It's unique in the sense that decisions from previous games influence the next game and some things are permanent. From what I understand, to play it you need the same group of people each game and the board is only good for one play through as you need to either cut out or rearrange the board. Also there are some ominous envelopes that have to remain sealed until the instructions tell you to open them. I just don't know why board games are so expensive :(

OK rambling over!

Don't think I forgot that you are the spicy lover! Might I suggest adding this to your wishlist? It's super tasty and used in almost any Korean spicy recipe. Or add this one as it's only $7 more and has 6x the quantity :)

Anyway, thanks for the contest Aveline!

    • Then add onions (I use prechopped, can't stress how lazy I am) - they are prechopped so they are smaller than the bell peppers - so I add them in a bit later.
    • Then add cherry tomatoes when the onions are ~1-2 mins away from being done.
    • This is the part where we season (if you use rotisserie like I do, because that chicken is already seasoned - otherwise do it after the chicken is added)
    • Then add the chicken to reheat, don't cook too long once chicken is in or it will be dry.
    • Once chicken is hot, push apart a hole in the middle and put in a good portion of the paste, smoosh it and let it heat up a bit, you will smell it soon, make sure the hood is on.
    • Add cocnut milk (depending on your macros, this might be a lot, it is a lot of calories).
    • Add Chopped basil and cilantro and season one last time
    • simmer for ~1-2 mins

      I used about 1200g of chicken, 2 bell peppers, 142g of onions, 1 pack of cherubs tomatoes, 50g of the paste, 40% can of coconut milk (~ 2 servings)

      ~289 calories with ~40g of protein per serving if split 6 ways.

Traditional Thai food minus the rice is very keto friendly. Lots of exotic green stuff and meat salads.

Real thai cury is not all sugary. It's just paste plus coconut milk. What's with the coconut oil craze when coconut milk is sweet keto nectar?

u/Funksultan · 2 pointsr/foodhacks

My wife and I are Thai curry fiends. I will give what tips I can, and a simple recipe.

  1. You mentioned "jar" curry paste. Most of the traditional pastes come in bags, and are in containers. Psychodelta mentions May Ploy coconut milk, which coincidentally, makes our favorite brand of paste. You can find it in any Asian market, and it will look like this. (all their flavors are great)

  2. Coconut milk. Any brand is fine by me, but there are 3 types. "Regular", "Premium" and "Coconut Cream". All are basically the same thing, with varying amounts of coconut cream/fat added to water. You're looking for that rich mouth feel of a restaurant curry, as opposed to a more traditional "thin soup", so you want the premium here. It's about twice the price, but it makes a world of difference. (the coconut cream is too thick, and usually used for dessert applications).
  3. Those combined with the meat of your choice will give you the base of your dish. Now to contemplate addons:

  • A slight sprinkle of brown sugar will increase your sweetness, and richen your color
  • Onion
  • Bamboo shoots (again, purchased at Asian grocery. Adds a nice crunch and texture
  • Spices. Garlic, cayenne, or minced thai peppers (Serrano peppers are pretty close here)
  • Baby peas. not too many, but a small handful. Again, texture/color.


    We made this for years, but there was still a Thai restaurant that added another flavor we just couldn't nail down. As it turns out, it was strips of kaffir lime leaves. If you are a Thai curry fanatic, this is the piece that really brings it all together. The bad news is, they are usually pretty difficult to come by, so we decided to just pick up a tree and plant it for year-around access. (we live in Texas, so we don't have to keep it indoors).

I do not qualify, but I love hot sauce.

Valentina black label is my daily driver. I try to bring back sauce from each place my wife and I travel, and the last place we we're in was Portland. I brought back some Aardvark sauce and it was great!

u/SergioSF · 2 pointsr/MealPlanYourMacros

Place 1-2lb of Ground chicken in a frying pan and stir the chicken on medium-high heat until barely pink. No added oils are needed to fry.

Drain access fat from pan. Since it's ground chicken, there will only be about 2-3 tablespoons.

Place frying pan back on stove.
Change heat to medium and move the meat over to one half side of the pan.

Crack in 3-4 eggs per 2lb of ground chicken on the other half of the pan and add salt and pepper and let sit for 2 minutes minutes. Then stir in all together. You should add in your precooked veggies at this point if you are using any.

Eat on or with slice of wheat toast. Dab on generous amount of Aardvark Secret Habanero Sauce. You can find this at supermarkets for $5-6, but paying $7.00 a bottle is a steal for how rare it can be depending on your location.

This is my lazy weekday morning way of doing it. My recipe is ripe for improvement.

u/rabidpirate · 1 pointr/mildlyinteresting

Depends on what you consider spicy tbqh. There are many delicious sauces that are just way too hot for most people.

If you want to stick with the same general heat level as tobasco, Tapatio and Cholula are super mainstream and available everywhere.

If you want a bump up from that (a few times hotter), I can't recommend Secret Aardvark enough

My personal favorite all around sauce (Jolokia 10) is also what I consider a fairly mild sauce (about twice as hot as Aardvark), [is also my favorite sauce] (

It's a puree style sauces instead of a vinegar/liquid sauce, so you get some chunk, some bite..but it's not an extract sauce like you get with some of the sauces starting at this level. Extract is a cheap way of giving more heat at the expense of taste (you get a metallic, carbon taste from the stuff)

That's what it is going for. Frank is not a nice person. And it even makes you question the very meaning of "pseudo-intellectual". At what age do people stop learning? Frank is stuck in his basement, never learning Love - from his great teacher (his wife). This goes beyond Intellectualism.

Now, would people pay good money to be punched in that spot of the brain. That's the issue with Season 2 - it isn't made for entertainment. Season 2 is very much a serving of Dave's Insanity Sauce.

I dunno. Not much to say. In the early 2000s Dave’s Insanity Sauce was de facto hottest hot sauce out there. Apparently it put someone in the hospital when it was used in a chili competition (chili like with beans, not ‘hot chili’s’)

I’ve had it before and just a couple drops is enough to spice up a pot of spaghetti sauce. “Spice up” or “ruin,” depending on your taste/tolerance.

Instead of using BBQ sauce, try getting a big bottle of sweet chili sauce and making sweet chili ribs! The sauce you'll need is orange like duck sauce, but with flakes of chili in it. Mae Ploy is my favorite brand. Use it just like American BBQ sauce and let it develop a nice glaze.

I practically collect hot sauces these days, currently however I have three hot sauces of choice, Cholula (Chipotle flavor if I can find it outside of my house) is a middle ground, I hate Tabasco sauce as I can taste the vinegar taste way too much in comparison, then my go to for heat currently is Ghost Tonic has ghost pepper, and is a fairly thick sauce so it doesn't run everywhere. And then finally for something sweet that packs plenty of flavor my choice as of late is Mae Ploy, though you can technically make it yourself in your kitchen with a little know how.

Next time you're doing pork, pick up some Mojo Criollo as well. It's a marinade/sauce base that makes pork orgasmic.

It's in the latin/hispanic food section of your grocery store, or you can buy it online. Try it -

u/mgmt_drone · 1 pointr/slowcooking

It's not carnitas, but close enough

1 pork loin, between 4-5lbs.

1 Bottle of Mojo Criollo. Check in the Latin foods section or with other Goya products.

2-3 spoonfulls of minced garlic

1 lime

One whole yellow onion and jalepeno, cut up

Put the pork loin, mojo criollo and garlic in a container to marinate overnight, at least 8 hours. Next morning put the pork loin and the marinade in the cooker. Add the onion and jalepeno, and the juice of the lime. Cook on low heat for at least 8 hours. 10 hours is better. When it's done, pull the pork out but save the juices.

Turn the broiler on in your oven on high heat. Shred the pork (should fall apart easily). Put it on a baking sheet, and pour some of the juices over it. You don't want to drown it, just keep it moist. Put in the broiler for 3-4 minutes, just so it gets a good crisp.

I have a very high tolerance to spicy food. The bottle says 137,000 scoville but that has to be a mistake cause this sauce had me writhing in pain. It was so hot I felt like I was gonna throw up a few times and it will melt your insides as it makes its way through your body. It comes in waves so you think it has passed and then you get hit with another wave of pain and misery. So in other words this hot sauce is really good and I would highly recommend it. (might be tolerable at lower amounts but when I add hot sauce I just dump a bunch)

I do, I like the whole range of normal hot sauces. When you start getting into the really painful stuff I'm not really into it, but a drop or two of Dave's Insanity Sauce can really improve a dish of mediocre mild salsa. At that rate the jar I bought on a whim will last a few decades. Eating Thai food I'll ask for a heat level of 2-3/4 out of 3, if that makes sense. 70% of my heat additions as an ingredient or condiment come from Sambal Oelek, I'll put it in everything from eggs to salad dressing. I'll use dried Thai chili flakes for other recipes like tacos or Lentil Dal. I keep Sriracha around, but it basically only goes on leftover pizza and a bottle will last me forever. My fiancee hates it, so I never include it as an ingredient. I will use a good amount in Pho though. Unfortunately for me, Tabasco is the most commonly available hot sauce, and I have a moderate dislike of the stuff. I'll eat it when the food is so boring it needs some heat added, but I'll pick pretty much any hot sauce in existence over it.
However, unlike my father, I can some times be perfectly content to eat foods with subtle flavors. He basically writes them off as bland, and then dumps a huge pile of any available hot sauce onto it.

Kung Pao Chicken

The recipe is written a little confusingly. but you can sub other vegetables, like green pepper and peas. I also sub This for the crushed red pepper and chicken breast for thigh. Also good soy sauce really makes a difference.

Edit the recipe really is hard to read so i will write it out since I am bored.


2 tablespoons dark sesame oil

1 cup chopped onion

2 garlic cloves, minced

1 pound skinless, boneless chicken thighs, cut into 1-inch pieces

Sauce ingredients

3/4 cup water

3 tablespoons lower-sodium soy sauce

2 teaspoons cornstarch

1 teaspoon brown sugar

1/2 teaspoon Fresh minced ginger

1 to 1 1/2 teaspoons crushed red pepper

  1. Cook onion until translucent in hot oil.

    2.Add garlic saute 30 seconds add chicken (after you salt and pepper it) and cook till almost done.

  2. mix water, soy sauce Cornstarch brown sugar, ginger and Red pepper/chili paste, Add to pan

  3. Add preferred veggies and top with peanuts. serve over white rice.

I see you mentioned curries in another post but they. are. SO. EASY. Seriously, I dunno what access you have to ethnic stores but this red curry paste I can find in almost any store but if I'm near an asian store I pick up this Maesi brand. My recipe is 1) Saute any vegetables and/or meat you have. Onions, carrots, zucchini, red pepper, whatever. 2) Throw in some of the curry paste and cook it for 1-2 minutes. 3) Dump in coconut milk. Seriously that's it. Maybe a pinch of sugar/fish sauce/cayenne/ginger if I feel like it. It's my go to when I need something quick and to use up any left over produce.


Also what about turkey? Burgers or stuffed bell peppers with turkey meat are great, or just do a half-and-half turkey meat with something like lentils for a bolognese pasta sauce.

u/the_talking_dead · 1 pointr/Cooking

If you'd like a simple starting point for thai curries, this right here is a fantastic starting point. There are also variety packs to try different ones.

Massaman Curry is one of my favorite things in the world. I typically make it with chicken, potato (sometimes sweet potato), sometimes with carrots, green peppers, or onion, always over rice. Don't forget to cook the peanuts either! :)

Next up is to grab some fish sauce, lemongrass, and ginger. I personally like Squid fish sauce. It is foul beyond belief if you give it a smell or pour it in a hot wok but it works magic. (I also add it to chili and meatloaf for umami). For the ginger and lemongrass, I won't lie, I often by those tubes of crushed stuff instead of actual lemon grass and ginger.

The Maesri pastes are a good starting point but working a little variation of the fish sauce, lemon grass, and ginger can get you a much better flavor.

For heat some sambal oelek is a pretty (this is a nice 3 pack of thai seasonings that has fish sauce and the chili paste) and maybe some ground thai chili.

Here is a recipe you can use as a starting point, I'd recommend frying the paste a minute or two then add coconut milk and letting that simmer a bit before getting into the rest of it. I personally wouldn't add peanut butter, though I make sure to cook with actual peanuts. If you have problems finding the tamarind paste, you'll be fine, though it is a good one to have.

u/lefsegirl · 1 pointr/personalfinance

I usually make at least 2 curries at a time, one vegetarian and one meat-based. My vegetarian yellow curry usually has potatoes, cauliflower (fresh or frozen), onions, garlic, garbanzo beans (dried - soaked and pre-cooked or canned), frozen peas, some golden raisins and maybe some fresh spinach simmered in coconut milk and curry paste. When you prepare a vegetarian one that is just as delicious as the meat-based one, the meat consumption goes down. (I use the green for chicken and the red for beef.) You can buy the cans of curry paste at an Asian market for about $2 USD each. Tofu also works very well in any of these curry pastes.

u/chestypocket · 1 pointr/Cooking

My husband and I have the same problem, and our go-to lazy meal is Butter Chicken. Our local Kroger sells a pre-made curry paste that we love (Kitchens of India, Butter Chicken Curry), and we eat that like most families eat spaghetti. Dice up some chicken, add whatever veggies you like, and make some rice and/or naan on the side. We also add a bit of ghost pepper because we like it really spicy, but our weak friends think it's very flavorful without no additional spices (except salt/pepper while the chicken is browning).

I also really enjoy fish as an easy, relatively healthy meal. Tilapia filets take no time to thaw in tepid water, so I just keep some in the freezer for easy, spur-of-the-moment dinners if I can't think of anything else. I season the fish with salt & pepper and either blackening spice or harissa seasoning (our local spice market sells a pre-made blend of dried spices that is my favorite thing ever). I usually nuke some frozen vegetables and make either rice or couscous on the side and add the same spices to the sides that I put on the fish. I usually make an extra meal to re-heat (in my HOME microwave) for lunch the next day.

I don't make it from scratch. Another user in this sub posted about the Kitchens of India brand pastes and I decided to try them out.

It does have a tiny bit of sugar, but not enough to where I feel any cravings after eating it. Also, one of the paste packets is said to be for 1 pound of chicken, but I've used more than 1 pound with one packet, which definitely helps reduce the grams of sugar per serving.

I'd simply avoid all processed junk whenever possible while staying away from restaurant foods except for those special occasions. Most likely that should get about three-quarters of the game covered according to this chart below:

For the meals that were prepared on my own, no added salt whatsoever since the flavor would come from salt-free canned tomatoes and powdered white onion. Maybe I would sprinkle just a little bit of kelp granules on top whenever I felt like adding a little bit of taste.

Stuff like chili garlic sauce and canned soups do contain some salt, I would add water to dilute them as my condiments while mixing everything beans and rice:

Well below my 1,500mg/day target and I don't really think much about my sodium intake as long as I'm cooking everything myself.

BTW, there are quite a few substitutes out there and three of them could be found online.

My supermarket has a ethnic food aisle and it’s right with the soy and hoisin sauces. You can also get the oyster sauce right there too. And as far as the sherry I’m not sure. I’ve read it’s fairly essential for that flavor

u/necktweakers · 1 pointr/keto

I like to use a chili garlic sauce as my stir fry sauce. <1 carb per serving! Not the same as a stir fry sauce, but the stuff is like crack to me. I can eat it by the spoonful.

Sorry born and raised in Louisiana, not really exotic. Why not try The Source.

u/NITROX4all · 1 pointr/pics

Next time try the source! Worst idea I had in a long time.

u/Bigsaggynigganips · 1 pointr/funny

We had this stuff at a sports bar I used to work at that was called "the source" which came in a little tiny glass vial. I don't remember the exact rating but it was definitely over 6 million scovilles. It was so thick and concentrated it was a thick black paste. I'm not entirely sure it wasn't in fact the blood of Satan himself. There was six or seven different levels of heat you could order on the menu - some of them we just added more powdered cayenne or used a different base. We would dip a tooth pick in the source and swirl it into the hot sauce for the "legendary wings" and fuck, that shit was insane.

Edit: found it, 7.1 million scovilles

u/CalibanRamsay · 1 pointr/LifeProTips

Get "the source"^ If that doesn't get you to your limit, nothing will.

if you ever get the chance this is the one i had

its great if you dilute 1 drop into 5 gallons

u/bethevoid · 1 pointr/videos

What's insane is that this is only rated at 350 Scovilles of heat. There's a hot sauce called The Source that is 7.1 million Scovilles.

You can buy it on Amazon here.

EDIT: You can also buy pure capsaicin crystal and dilute it into a tincture of 16 million Scoville units.

You gotta try Dave's Insanity Sauce if you like heat.

I like mixing this

And this

The combination is the best combination of heat and flavor. A few drops of each into a soup or onto some chicken and you will be sweating, crying, runny nose, all the good reasons people like spicy food. (Other people like those feelings too, right?)

u/Foraid91 · 1 pointr/AskReddit

You pick up a bottle of this.

Then you coat the sandwich in this. Not enough that it is noticeable while holding the sandwich, but more than a few drops.

The Naga Jolokia pepper rates at a 1,000,000 on the Skoville Scale. For reference that pepper is roughly 333 times as hot as an average Jalapeno pepper.

You taste a small amount of that sauce with expecting it, you'll think twice about anything you eat again. Plus, the sauce is quite tasty.

u/PLD_Xavier · 1 pointr/NintendoSwitch

Watch out, this sauce has got a bit of a kick. Don't know how often you die in melee, or your hot sauce tolerance, so be careful!

Dave's Ghost Pepper Sauce actually isn't too bad as far as taste goes. Not quite as hot as eating the pepper directly but is still enough to put a hurt on most people.

u/garage_cleaner · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Nan-pizza. Perfect for one person. You can either purchase precooked naan, or make it yourself via this recipe. Warning this step takes awhile, but it's no knead.

I used kochujang paste as a base, because its spicy and sweet and works well for me.

Then just top with mozzarella and anythings you like! I heat it up in a toaster oven since its just for one person. This is how I survived as a single person. There are so many variations! But, the kochujang is so flavorful, I often ate it just with the cheese!

u/dogfluffy · 1 pointr/FoodPorn

I am going to have to try that, and add some of this for the kick too!

u/wildevoodoo · 1 pointr/EatCheapAndHealthy

This recipe and this one here are my two current favorites. For the first one, Halloumi cheese can be pricey, so I usually sprinkle feta on top instead! And the Korean-style is insanely fast/easy/inexpensive. I mixed a little bit of gochujang with the vinaigrette while it was boiling, and it really took the flavor to the next level, but you can use sriracha if you want, or just leave chili paste out of it. It tastes fantastic either way!

u/DarthContinent · 1 pointr/Cooking

Recently my wife made a batch of wings with Gochujang (Korean) pepper paste, delicious! Spicy, garlicky, plus the interesting flavor of the peppers. You can find it at Asian markets or online.

I don't know much about Japanese cooking, but this is a soy free soy sauce, but does contain coconut which isn't technically a nut.

Also, I really like this site for desserts and snacks.

I don't know how this will work for skinless chicken, but I have done it with a cut-up whole fryer.
Minced garlic, fresh squeezed juice from the fruit, with some grated rind nixed into [Coconut Aminos]

I marinate with that for several hours......the coconut aminos is a great product.

Mentioned elsewhere but it is Lao Gan Ma. Lee Kum Kee is best for just about all the rest of the stuff I get like that though (hoisin, oyster, dark soy, etc), they may have an equivalent sauce. I know they have a chili garlic sauce, chili bean sauce and chili oil, but I don't know what the OP's sauces taste like for comparison.

I looooove Lee Kum Kee brand.

u/faerielfire · 1 pointr/Cooking
u/OsterizerGalaxieTen · 1 pointr/Chaffles

AGREED! This stuff is addicting and heavenly. Here is the original

I am thankful I can buy it locally for cheap, (forget if it's $1.79 or $2.79), and happen to be picking up 3 more jars today. It is seriously great on everything - today I'm adding it to cauliflower rice along with some chopped green onion. I've put it on chicken, pork, beef....freaking awesome. It's got a nice kick, but not super spicy so I tend to use a lot on whatever I'm making.

edit: There were only 4 left, so I got them all. They were $2.49 each :)

u/Wixden · 1 pointr/asianeats

Definitely Lao Gan Ma chili oil. Fun fact: also endorsed by John Cena

I always have Lao Gan Ma in my cupboard. Not hugely hot but essential to add heat to stir fries or dipping sauces.

Learn how to make aoli. There's the "mayo with other stuff mixed in" aoli, and there's "made from scratch with garlic salt acid and oil" which is a whole other beast. They're both great ways of saucing up bland foods, but they won't drip off.

Herbed butter.

If your dad likes chinese food, experiment with silken tofu (or boiled soft tofu, which gets it to almost the same consistency) with chili oils (e.g. the disappointed grandma oil, but of course possibly without the crunchy bits. That stuff goes on oatmeal etc. for people who like it, too.

Chinese cuisine also has conjee, which is a rice gruel (look it up for variations, you make it with a 1:6 ratio of water to rice, and simmer until all the rice blooms and is very diffuse), but made with again perhaps small broken up bits of tofu, ginger and garlic (which you would probably need to mash before cooking to make it swallowable) and again with the spicy sauce.

Probably key to any endeavor is to find ways to make individual flavors hit at different times. So instead of blending masses of things together, try to make it so you have a bit of an herb like finely chopped green onion on something, or finely chopped cilantro. These garnishes will go a long way to making the food enjoyable.

Oh, and thin creamy curry sauces, maybe a paneer tiki masala, but with the paneer broken up into very fine pieces. Just make sure to reduce the salt in the sauce from any recipe you find since a recipe will be seasoned to be served with rice or bread.

u/iamnotvoldemort · 1 pointr/EatCheapAndHealthy

I learned to make thai red curry by watching this video.

Couple of things I do:

  • I haven't been able to find kaffir lime leaves or thai basil without driving 40-50 miles, so I just leave them out and I'll squeeze a little bit of lime juice in the curry. Not super authentic or restaurant quality, but it makes something that tastes good. Thai basil is especially excellent though, and if you can find that, definitely add it.

  • I don't like the brand of thai curry pastes you can get at the grocery store (here it's Thai Kitchen), they just taste off to me. However, Mae Ploy is a great brand you can get off of Amazon and is a much better value, imo. A much larger container that will last you forever (mine's been in my fridge a couple of years now and it still hasn't gone bad) and only a dollar or so more expensive than the grocery store stuff.

  • I've made thai curry with low fat coconut milk before. Honestly, if you have health concerns about the fat/caloric intake, just make it less often and eat as a treat. Low fat coconut milk doesn't temper the heat, no matter how little paste you use, and you'll just end up a sad fire breathing dragon. Cook's Illustrated did a test of popular brands - I use Thai Kitchen since it's what I can find in the grocery store.

  • I don't eat vegetarian/vegan, but thai curry is extremely versatile in what you can put in it. I usually eat red curry and my absolute favorite addition to it is pineapple. As far as vegetables, I usually put peas, carrots, bell peppers, and tomatoes. As a general rule, stay away from green leafy things, but feel free load it with a ton of vegetables and experiment! If you/anyone you serve eats meat, just about any kind of meat will go well. Chicken, pork, beef, and fish all work really well. Squid is actually really amazing for red curry if you're feeling fancy.

  • I'll eat it over just about any kind of rice but jasmine is the best.
u/Nureru · 1 pointr/Cooking

In case you're actually curious, I like this curry paste, and this fish sauce.

u/rohyplol · 1 pointr/100DaysofKeto

My favorite Thai dish to order is red Thai curry w/o rice BUT! You'll need to ask the restaurant to make it without sugar. Most restaurants are perfectly willing to do this for you, and my local restaurant has come to know that it's my regular order.

Alternatively, I'd highly recommend this super easy (once you own red Thai curry paste) recipe that I make every week. It feeds us for three days or more straight and gets to the heart of my Asian food cravings without fail.

I also have a pretty easy recipe for Indian butter chicken which, just, yum.

Online is extremely overpriced (especially the korean one because it is 10 seperate packages. Probably enough for 4 weeks though!), but here is what I found: I live in a bigger city so my asian store sells those buckets for under 5 bucks and a big bag of the korean curry for like 6.


Thai Red:


Thai Green:

Edit: The thai ones need coconut milk cans (about 70-99c) and the red and green curry one tastes so much better if you put egg plants in there.

Why not?

I don't use Sriracha I use Sembal Oelek, very close. Sriracha has experienced a surge in popularity lately though. Marketing.

Funny thing, I have this on my desk in front of me, and I'm sure it was less than five bucks. Amazon wants sixty bucks for it???

Edit: Just went to T&T, you can buy Sriracha ketchup there.
