About this deal

They mention that it has a nice crunch for added texture, is very moorish, and the crunch feeling is delightful. While that doesn’t sound particularly appetizing, this is fantastic to eat on its own without having to add to a hot dish. Similar to the previous sauce, this adds other unnecessary textures and elements including salted rutabagas, bean curd, and peanuts. Lao Gan Ma, iconic in China, is increasingly appearing in cupboards and fridges in the rest of the world. The beauty of this is its versatility, not just for use in Chinese dishes but can be eaten, and that it goes with everything imaginable.

At The Secret, we do everything we can to make sure the information about the products we sell is always as accurate as possible. LGM crispy chilli oil, or Lao Gan Ma chilli sauce, is filled to the brim with dried chilli and crispy fried onion in a richly flavoured oil. Soybean Oil [40%], Chilli [35%], Onion [8%], Fermented Black Beans ( Soybean, Water), Salt, Sichuan Pepper Corn, Sugar, Flavour Enhancer E621. Recommendations: consider piling onto your favorite hummus as the lack of crunch from the peanuts will not be an issue or incorporating into your flight of ice cream toppings.Information and statements about products are not intended to be used to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease or health condition. The Lao Gan Ma range gives you plenty to choose from, with different sauces giving your dishes a complex flavour profile. There’s also the addition of fermented soybeans (which add a nice bit of funk), some Sichuan peppercorn for a mild tingling sensation, and — this is important — some MSG for even more umami.

Perfect for adding to Chinese food and a range of other cuisines, Lao Gan Ma is the go-to option for those that love spicy Asian dishes.While we have taken care in preparing this summary and believe it is accurate, it is not a substitute for your reading the product packaging and label prior to use. It’s spicy, to be sure, but not Elmhurst-Thai spicy: It’s balanced the way Sriracha is, only with more crunch and oomph.

Add the oil, ginger, bay leaf, star anise, cinnamon, and green onions to a saucepan and heat over medium-low until it starts to bubble gently and the green onions start to brown, 5-6 minutes, or until the oil reaches 300°F. Eat this on top of soft tofu as a snack, dressed with cucumbers for an easy banchan-esque side dish (see recipe below for Sichuan cucumbers), or added to a fried rice dish at the last second. Heavily salted, these little buggers are tasty, umami bombs that add an unexpected creaminess to an otherwise crispy combination of fried garlic and crushed chiles. There is a saying about the south-western Chinese province of Guizhou: “Not three feet of flat land, not three days without rain, not a family with three silver coins. Serve the crispy chilli oil at the table with almost any dish - a spoon in a bowl of ramen, or a little on top of silken tofu with sesame and soy for breakfast.Some other sweet possibilities: Spicy Chili Crisp truffles, Spicy Chili Crisp crème brûlée, or Chili Oil with Black Bean jellied donuts. The brand is also ubiquitous, spawning Lao Gan Ma phone cases, clothing, pencil cases and the joke, according to state-owned financial news organisation Yicai China, that when a man gets married, it is to two women: his fiancee and Tao Huabi. Every product featured in The Strategist is rigorously selected by our (obsessive and unbiased) editors. Each sauce has spicy, umami notes and offers slightly differing textures, depending on which chilli oil infusion you go for. If you’re not quite ready to commit, smaller sample-size jars of whole Calabrian peppers, which look like toy chillies and are pizza-slice ready, are also available.
