Dehydrated Sriracha Powder

Postby ERIC » Tue Aug 06, 2013 6:46 pm

Just found this and can't wait to try it. Anyone else a card-carrying Sriracha addict?


Dehydrated Sriracha Powder

Yield: 1½ tablespoons
Cook Time: 1 hour, 20 minutes
Ingredients: 2 tablespoons Sriracha sauce

DIRECTIONS

Preheat the oven to 200°. Spread the Sriracha in a thin layer on a silpat-lined baking sheet and place in the oven. Dehydrate until completely dried, about 1 hour, 20 minutes. Remove the baking sheet from the oven and set aside to cool at room temperature. Place the cooled Sriracha in a plastic bag and crush until finely ground. Use in tiny amounts as a garnish. (The dehydrated Sriracha is wildly intense.)

TT Tip: At Talde, the sriracha powder is folded into a homemade ranch dressing to make sri-rancha. Try it at home folded into store-bought ranch dressing, sprinkled atop deviled eggs or stirred into soup.

You lost me at Ranch Dressing. The most depressing taste on Earth. Work Blue Cheese into it and i'm a fan.

You can dehydrate anything.

I love Sriracha sauce! :thumbsup:

Dehydrating it sounds like way too much hassle, though. You know that it does come in little single-serving packets, like soy sauce, yes?

go with the packet, Eric. fills the voids in the bear can. :) I don't want to hear the words "Ranch dressing" again.

I can see this used in pasta dishes and even for fish.. but no ranch. If you do fish tacos, perfect.. no ranch. maybe just me..

Russ, why do I get the feeling you don't like Ranch Dressing.

my College roommate used to work as a Plant manager/R&D guy for Clorox. Did you know they make Hidden Valley Ranch dressings and KC Masterpiece BBQ sauce and some Kingsford products? When he was located in Pleasanton , we shared an appt in Fremont in the late 80's after we got jobs. He would bring home lots of charcoal, bbq sauce and that hideous ranch dressing. I liked the briquettes the most, as I'm a old-school bbq guy.

Personally, i do think Ranch tastes like it might have a tad touch of bleach in it. :p

Ok.. not to take away from the OP.. if you do a google search on sriracha packets, you will see many choices. I'm not sure why packets bad compared to all that dehydration time, but I'll take the packets any day!

Yes, I'm aware of them, and use them. Just thought the dehydration idea was kind of interesting. And 1.5 hours IS NOT that long or that much trouble. At least on my planet it's not. Especially when I'm dehydrating other items anyway. Not much extra work to just throw in some sauce.

Venus? That would dehydrate well. and require very little external energy. :)

Who was your college roomie? Judy worked at Clorox R&D as a microbiologist from something like 1992 (or was it 1993) until 2004 or so. She did bring home some of those dressing samples, but since neither of us liked their dressings that much, that only happened early on. The KC Masterpiece stuff was a bit more useful. I used that for my "marinating" BBQ sauce to set up my own homemade ("Oakland-style") BBQ sauce that I slop on after grilling. Kingsford is still my go-to charcoal, so the Kingsford samples were extremely useful for us.
