You’ve heard of Sriracha, you’ve heard of Gochujang… but how about Sambal Oelek?

According to the National Restaurant Association, spicy sauces are the current kings of ethnic condiments, and Sambal Oelek fits right in. This Indonesian hot sauce is made¬†with red chili peppers, salt, vinegar, garlic, and lime juice. Its pleasantly chunky texture and fiery heat can be used in a huge variety of dishes: meats, seafoods, tofu, salads, stir fries, noodles… the possibilities are nearly endless. Give it a try!
