I woke up to the smell of eggs.
Three years ago, I traveled to Cambodia to volunteer and teach English for a month. After finishing my teaching, I traveled to a riverside town called Kampot, at the southern part of Cambodia. There, I stayed in a riverside hostel and was introduced to Banh Chao.
I walked over and could smell the delicious ground pork and the pungent fish sauce, and hear the pounding of the garlic in the mortal and pestle. I watched as the ladies made Banh Chao.
Banh Chao is a traditional Khmer Cambodian savory “crepe.” Generally made with a special flour mixture with egg and turmeric, it is filled with ground pork, bean sprouts, onions, and a good dash of chili.
This following version is my adaptation of the Banh Chao I had with the ingredients that are local to the Bay Area. And of course, using Sosu’s very own Barrel-Aged Sriracha and Srirachup sauce to add the Southeast Asian flavor. Enjoy!View full article →
This recipe comes from our friend, Nitin at NomNomaste. Nitin grew up in New Delhi, India and moved to the United States in 2002. His recipes, flavor explorations are composed of his grandmother's influence and his own take that he developed while cooking in many kitchens in the U.S. Similar to Nitin, we both find comfort in combining our heritage and flavors we are familiar with and mixing them with our American roots. Here, Nitin shares with us an amazing Spiced Orange Duck Taco made with our Barrel-Aged Sriracha. Enjoy!View full article →

And a warm “Thank You” from Sosu sauces to all our soldiers for your service!View full article →
Although a delicious appetizer and great for happy hour, Shrimp Cocktail can be a bit monotonous, and that’s why we’ve decided to take it to the next level and jazz it up a bit. The citrus found in the early girl tomatoes that we use in our Srirachup provide a delightfully sweet and tangy element to brighten up any shrimp cocktail, but also deliver a kick of heat. So add a little twist to your next happy hour with our Cilantro-Lime Shrimp Cocktail!
The Japanese version of the German schnitzel would be chicken “katsu”, pieces of chicken breaded in panko crumbs and delicately fried. Traditionally, this dish is served with “tonkatsu” dipping sauce, a Japanese version of our smoky American barbeque sauce. Here at Sosu we’ve repurposed our Barrel-Aged Sriracha into a smoky version of spicy mayo and our Srirachup into a tangy version of tonkatsu sauce to provide you with a yummy dipping sauce duo packed with enough heat to keep you coming back for more of this hot combination. Served as a “finger-food” appetizer or an impressive, yet simple dish, you can never go wrong with the Sosu Barrel- Aged Spicy Mayo and Tangy Tontkatsu Dipping Sauce Duo when enjoying your piping hot, crispy chicken katsu.View full article →
Although easy and quick to make, pasta with plain tomato sauce can be a bit monotonous and boring – but it’s nothing a little Sosu can’t fix. A hint of Barrel-Aged Sriracha will brighten up your plain red pasta sauce, transforming it into a sensational arrabiata sauce (a spicy version to the common marinara, red tomato sauce), provoking rustic flavors that will leave your guests asking for seconds. Our Angel Hair with Sosu Arrabbiata Sauce may be quite simple to make (as well as vegetarian and vegan friendly), but the perfect amount of Sosu makes this dish simply extraordinary.View full article →
