Tiger Satế, Lemongrass Chili Paste [4 oz. Jar]
Each jar of Tiger Saté is handcrafted in small batches in Houston and is made from fresh lemongrass and garlic, creating an unmatched taste and aroma. As always, no MSG or preservatives, just fresh herbs, and spices. Vegan-friendly and gluten-free.
As a child, An Dao left Vietnam (with her family) for a new life in America. Like most Vietnamese in the international diaspora community, food memories of home would flood her. In particular, her grandmother’s cooking. In An’s yearning to connect with her roots, she recreated her grandmother’s famous “satế” [A Vietnamese chili paste with origins and similarities to Chinese X.O.] from her memory of taste. And it’s amazing.
Add to your bowl of Pho - it’s better than Sriracha
Use as a marinade.
Use for your stir fry.
Use it anywhere you would put Sriracha.
I am not a cook - but whenever I prepare a meal with Tiger Saté as my "secret ingredient," I know the evening will be a culinary success. I even surprise myself when I'm able to create something so tasty without the sweat and the tears. I also like the fact that mild is mild because sadly I can't handle anything spicy. (Maybe someday.)
Thanks to Tiger Saté, the whole family can enjoy an exotic meal at home - until it's safe to return to our favorite Asian restaurants.
At this stage I can only say it's very, very hot. A small amount as a supplement will likely do well in the right dish..
