Satiate Your Appetite for Sriracha With These Spicy Snacks

satiate your appetite for sriracha with these spicy snacks picmonkey collage
Do you grab a bottle of Sriracha — the Thai hot sauce named after the Eastern Thailand coastal city — when you need a little spice in your life? We certainly do. In the past few years sales of the condiment, which is made from chili peppers and distinguished by its signature rooster bottle, have skyrocketed, making it as much of a household name as Tabasco. People pour it on everything — noodles, eggs and even tacos. Lately we’ve noticed that Sriracha has been showing up in a number of snacks — some sound amazing, while others seem a bit bizarre. Here’s a rundown on a few of the Sriracha-flavored munchies that we’ve come across.

Corned beef and cabbage: Learn how to make this St. Patrick’s Day classic
It isn't St. Patrick's Day without a cold pint and a big plate of corned beef and cabbage
best corned beef and cabbage recipe 2

As St. Patrick's Day rolls around again, many of us will dutifully trudge to the grocery store, pick up our corned beef from the bulk display, head home and boil that piece of meat to death in the name of 'tradition.' Many of us are guilty of going through the motions of culinary traditions without giving a second thought to whether or not they actually taste good (we're looking at you, fruitcake). But in the case of corned beef, this is a real travesty, because this is a dish that, when done properly, is exquisitely delicious. One so good, in fact, that, if we knew better, would be on a weekly rotation, and not just an annual one.

Many corned beef and cabbage recipes out there call for a braise, which makes sense. Corned beef is most often a brisket cut, which requires low and slow cooking to ensure a tender result. Too often, though, those braises turn out flabby, lifeless, flavorless pieces of meat that we only feel obligated to eat because St. Patrick told us to. Let's put an end to that here and now. This is how to cook corned beef and cabbage the right way.
