In 2018, Food & Wine named this recipe one of our 40 best: This simple chile sauce is served with Hakka-Style Salt-Baked Chicken, but it’s great on all types of meat. The fruity-hot blend mixes with rice vinegar and a touch of sugar for a balanced, addictive flavor.
1 tablespoon Chinese chile sauce (such as Tso Hin Kee Chinese Chili Sauce) (see Note)
1 tablespoon hot water
1 teaspoon rice vinegar
1/2 teaspoon granulated sugar
How to Make It
Whisk together all ingredients in a small bowl until sugar dissolves. Let stand at least 15 minutes; stir before serving.
Chinese chile sauce is a fruity-hot blend of chiles and spices. Do not confuse chile sauce with hot bean paste or a product labeled “chili paste with garlic.”
