Homemade Chili Garlic Sauce

 

Oh yeah… now we’re getting spicy! If sriracha isn’t spicy enough anymore and you’re looking for something with a bit more flavor, welcome to this blog post! This Chili Garlic Sauce is the homemade version of the stuff you find in the Asian section of grocery stores, but with less preservatives and more garlic! It’s also really easy to make, lasts in the fridge for months, and has no harmful preservatives; I’ll take this one any day over the store-bought version and I hope you’ll enjoy it just as much as I do. Wondering how to use it in your cooking? Just add it to stews, on top of fried eggs and even in pasta sauce.

Ingredients
  1. 2 oz dried deArbol chile peppers
  2. 4 cloves garlic
  3. 1/2 inch piece of fresh ginger
  4. 1 tbsp white vinegar
  5. 1/2 tsp powdered sugar
  6. 1 cup of water
Instructions
  1. You can start with any chiles you like (and therefore control the heat of the sauce), but I like to use deArbol chiles. I found dried ones at Treasure Island, although you could also use fresh Chinese red chiles at Asian markets.
  2. Peel the garlic cloves and the piece of fresh ginger. Add all the ingredients to a food processor and grind until you have a redhot sauce and all the ingredients are chopped up finely. Add the chili sauce to a small saucepan and simmer for about 10 minutes, until everything softens up and the sauce thickens a bit.
  3. Allow to cool and store in the fridge.
Notes
  1. Makes about 1 1/2 cups
