    The chefs on all my favourite cooking programs use it all the time and I have no idea what it is. Is it like catsup?

    People use it a lot, but it's far from the best out there.

    10. ArikaDawn mixes it with strawberry jam as a sweet/hot dip for pretzels.

    11. toodie jane mixes it into softened butter, adds a few drops of liquid smoke, and spreads it over corn on the cob.

    12. Put it in your oatmeal. (The expert in our You're Doing It All Wrong: Oatmeal video wouldn't disagree.)

    13. Dirty Frank's, a restaurant in Columbus, Ohio, sells a hot dog with Sriracha coleslaw (via New York Times).

    14. wayne keyser uses it to make a "quick-and-dirty BBQ sauce," which consists of:

    Ketchup
    Moderate amount of dark molasses
    Good-sized amount of Sriracha
    Garlic powder
    Worcestershire sauce
    Sugar to taste

    15. Add to vanilla frosting for cupcakes.

    16. Mix it into a Bloody Mary.

    17. Use instead of salsa with chips.

    18. A few Chowhounds swear by adding Sriracha to a peanut butter sandwich. klieglight2 says, "A lot of people look at me in disgust when I do this, but the flavour of the chilies, garlic and subtle sweetness of the Sriracha go so well with PB."

    19. Mix into macaroni and cheese.

    20. Add to honey for a spicy-sweet wing glaze.

    23. Mix with soy sauce, sesame oil, and sweet rice vinegar to make a dipping sauce for green onion cakes.

    24. pianoboy recommends making a popcorn topping "in a ketchup-like-squeeze bottle (the kind with the thin, cone-shaped nozzle) [with] tamari, cider vinegar, and Sriracha to taste. Apply liberally while popcorn is devoured."

    25. Use it as pizza sauce (discretion is recommended).

    26. Pour it over vanilla ice cream (or make Sriracha ice cream, like Top Chef Casey did).

    27. Combine with olive oil and cracked pepper to dip bread in.

    28. Ruth Lafler mixes it with black cherry preserves to spread on ham sandwiches.

    31. Stir into polenta while cooking.

    32. Use as an easy substitute for a chopped hot pepper in recipes.

    33. JBC says, "Pasta + Red Sauce + Sriracha = Asian Arrabbiata."

    34. JC sauces raw cubed ahi tuna with mayo, Sriracha, and togarashi, then serves it on a bed of seaweed salad.

    40. Mix with miso dressing (Red Shell is the preferred kind) for use on cold noodles.



    41. Make CHOW.com's Sriracha Deviled Eggs. Or, as mrbigshotno.1 says:

    "Wanna try something good? I call them Rooster Bombs…prepare your favorite deviled eggs then stick the nozzle of sriracha down in the yolk filling and squeeze about 1/4 tsp into it, yeah baby! (of course take off the nozzle afterwards and wash it.)"

    42. CreativeFoodie42 uses it as a marinade for chicken nuggets, along with ginger and white rice vinegar, then dips the chicken chunks in egg and panko breadcrumbs and bakes them.

    43. Dommy! creates a dipping sauce for gyoza by mixing Sriracha with hoisin sauce and rice cooking wine.

    44. Jazz up your hummus or falafel.

    45. lyn uses it in a spicy tomato and blue cheese soup.
