*What can I substitute for sriracha?
If you don’t have any of the ubiquitous Rooster-branded hot sauce on hand, don’t fret. You can still pull off this sweet spicy treat. The best sub for Sriracha is sambal oeleck, the thick, spicy paste that’s packed with heat. The biggest difference is that Sriracha has garlic and sugar, whereas sambal oeleck has neither. Other than sambal oeleck, you can try chili paste, crushed chile flakes, or even cayenne pepper.
