Sriracha sauce, literally means, the “Sauce of the Glorious Ruler!” (though it technically just means “sauce from a town called Si Racha”). Sriracha chilies are about as hot as Tabasco (scoring about 2200 on the Scoville scale to Tabasco’s score of 2500).
This bright red, multi-purpose hot Sriracha sauce by Meishi, is made in Vietnam, from red chili peppers, garlic, vinegar, salt, and sugar. The sauce is hot and tangy with just a hint of sweetness, which sets it apart from your garden variety hot sauces. Premium ingredients that include hand-picked, sun-ripened Bird’s eye chilies, naturally brewed vinegar, handpicked garlic and sustainably farmed sugar are used in our special Sriracha Chili sauce recipe to create an authentic and gourmet dipping and cooking sauce that you’ll love.
Sriracha sauce is often served as a condiment in Thai, Vietnamese, and Chinese restaurants to enhance the flavor of soup noodles, fried noodles, and a dip for fried foods. But with explosive popularity over the last few years, Sriracha is being used for a wide range of dishes, from a go-to all-purpose dip to a punchy chicken wing marinade and more recently a cocktail ingredient.
The origins and influences of the sauce are multicultural as is its appeal. The sauce is no longer found only in Asian restaurants but also in the kitchens of chefs, the pages of culinary magazines, and on the shelves of grocery stores across the country. I am sure you have some at home, that you should replace with our genuine and tasteful Meishi Sriracha sauce!

Like most hot sauces, Meishi Sriracha is extremely versatile. Here are a few ways to enjoy the potent sauce:
- Straight: Sriracha’s original use was as a dipping sauce. Squeeze some into a small bowl or squirt it straight from the bottle onto your favorite foods.
- Sauces: Sriracha’s spicy, tangy flavor pairs wonderfully with creamy dips and sauces. Mix some Meishi Sriracha into sour cream, mayonnaise, or cream cheese-based dips for a little kick.
- Soups/Stews: Sriracha is often served with pho in Vietnamese restaurants, but you can also try adding it to ramen, tomato soup, or gazpacho. Cream-based soups, like chowders, also benefit from Meishi Sriracha’s kick.
- Meats/Marinades: Add Meishi Sriracha to teriyaki flavored marinades, BBQ sauces, or chicken wings.
- Eggs/Cheese: Anything creamy, including cheese and egg yolks, balances perfectly with the spicy, tangy flavor of Meishi Sriracha. Add Meishi Sriracha to macaroni and cheese, cheese dips, cheese balls, or scrambled, fried, or deviled eggs.
- Drinks: Meishi Sriracha sauce adds a new twist to Bloody Marys or regular tomato or vegetable juice.
Enjoy the complex flavors that this sauce imparts by using it as a dipping sauce to add a tangy garlic-chili flavor to any dish. A great addition to authentic dishes like pho or seafood and even to sandwiches or burgers.
