I am on the hunt for a very spicy nutty, savory chili sauce


Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I am looking for a specific sauce. You can store it in the refrigerator for some time.
The consistency is very liquid, like soy sauce
The color is dark almost black

 

I tasted the sauce in Vietnam at a Chinese cook

 

It may well be that it is a Chinese recipe that has been adapted, or simply an own creation.

 

In it float chilis and onions
It is very oily

It tastes nutty and is not sweet at all
It goes well with steak and vegetables

It is very hot

 

Does anyone have an idea what it could be, or a similar recip

 

Unfortunately, he has only very superficially slipped me what is in it.

 

What is contained in any case:
Onions that you let get black
Soy sauce
Oyster sauce
Sambal
red Thai curry
Chili's
Sesame Oil

 

what might still be in there:
Carpern 
Cardamon

@souphead, is what you are looking for anything like Lao Gan Ma's crispy chili in oil?  That seems similar to what's sold here as spicy chili crisp. 

 

Here's a recipe for a homemade version of that:  Homemade Spicy Chili Crisp Recipe

 

My personal favorite version of this type of sauce is the Yank Sing Chili Pepper Sauce made by the San Francisco restaurant of the same name and previously widely available but apparently, due to a family feud, no longer available, at least in my area.  

The closest thing I've found is this recipe by esteemed eG member @hzrt8wHomemade Hot Chili Oil Recipe

That would have been my suggestion as well ... and if you want to go in the nutty direction, stir in some sesame paste (or peanut butter, if sesame is not available). A bit of vinegar to balance and some fried shallots for atone and you’ll have a great nutty & chilli-laden condiment ...
