WN Foods Sauces in Marinades

With the right ingredients and enough time, marinades are an easy way to add flavor and moisture to your meals. Here are some marinades you can create with WN Foods sauces!

Soy Garlic Marinade

Marinating meats doesn’t have to be complicated. Soy sauce is the base for many simple marinades like this soy garlic marinade, which only requires 4 basic ingredients that combine to form an explosion of flavor for your steak of choice!

Spicy Mustard Marinade

Using spicy mustard in a marinade is a sure way to add some heat to a bland piece of meat. However, many people find the taste to be too strong, so they often pair it with ingredients like honey to balance it out. If you would like to try it yourself, check out this spicy mustard marinade!

Honey Sriracha Marinade

Our Sriracha sauce in squeeze bottles makes it easy to simply cover your dishes in this delicious hot sauce, but did you know that sriracha is also great in marinades like this honey sriracha marinade? The heat is more subtle and even when mixed with other ingredients like honey and soy sauce.

Battle of the WN Foods Hot Sauces

Which WN Foods Hot Sauce Is King?

Today our hot sauces are going head-to-head to see which one will emerge victorious. We’ll judge them on the following categories:

  • Heat
  • Versatility
  • Texture
  • Overall flavor

Let the fight begin!

Sriracha

Our first contender is Sriracha, the delectable Thai hot sauce that has taken the world by storm. How will this old favorite fare in the ring?

  • Heat: Sriracha is hot, but not burn-your-face-off hot. This is part of what makes it so approachable.
  • Versatility: This sauce isn’t just for pho! You can use it basically any way you use ketchup, too.
  • Texture: Smooth, also like ketchup.
  • Overall flavor: It’s hard to beat this harmonious blend of spice, citrus, and garlic!

Gochujang

Next up is Gochujang, a spicy Korean sauce giving Sriracha a run for its money. Could this be the next big hot sauce?

  • Heat: Trust us when we say that Gochujang is sure to bring the heat! It’s a slow burn, but the spice will gradually spread across your tongue, then suddenly you need a gallon of water.
  • Versatility: Though mostly used in Korean recipes, Gochujang can be used in basically all the same ways as Sriracha.
  • Texture: This sauce is also smooth, but heavier and richer than Sriracha.
  • Overall flavor: Gochujang’s flavor is complex, ancient, and deep. The fermented ingredients create a unique flavor experience that we can’t recommend enough!

Chinese Hot Mustard

488198245

Chinese mustard may look gentle, but watch out! Just take one tiny bit and you’ll be sweating. Can this mustard hold up against the other two sauces?

  • Heat: This is a sharp, pungent heat. If you’re looking to make a statement with your spice, Chinese Mustard is the perfect ingredient.
  • Versatility: Chinese Mustard is most often used with pork or as an egg roll dipping sauce, but adventurous souls can use it in any recipe that calls for mustard. Just be sure to have a glass of water on hand.
  • Texture: The texture is thick, but satisfying.
  • Overall flavor: Chinese Mustard is mustard kicked up a hundred notches. Spicy, all-powerful, and all-flavorful!

Sriracha, Gochujang, and Chinese Mustard are all strong hot sauce contenders, but which one is the best? We just can’t decide! Which one is your spicy condiment king? Let us know in the comments!

3 Hot Sauces You May Not Know

In the US, we always hear about the same hot sauces: tabasco, sriracha, and cholula. They’re great and all, but what about the world of other hot sauces out there? Let’s take a look at 3 lesser known but equally amazing hot sauces.

#1: Harissa

Harissa is a North African hot sauce made with several different peppers, garlic paste, herbs, and vegetable oil. Like sriracha, it can be paired with almost anything: meats, veggies, bread… if you need to crank up the heat, look no further than harissa!

#2: Aji

Aji’s green color may throw you off, but don’t be fooled- this Peruvian sauce definitely packs a punch. It is most often used with meat, but also makes a great dipping sauce. If you’re looking to try something new in the kitchen, we recommend aji sauce!

#3: Sambal

Sambal is an Indonesian hot sauce made with chili peppers, shrimp paste, fish sauce, vinegar, and a variety of other spices and juices. It sports a unique texture and a wonderfully complex flavor that pairs well with meat, fish, and vegetables alike. Next time you find yourself reaching for the same old hot sauce, try sambal instead!
