Chili Crisp - Different Brands & Uses

#1 Post by Betty C »

I've been using Lao Gan Ma's classic Chili Crisp a lot, but as much as I love the stuff I don't love MSG or preservatives. I prefer naturally occurring umami flavors vs. taking the shortcut. I just ordered Fly by Jing and Momofuku since neither contain MSG nor preservatives, and I know Trader Joe's has one too.

Curious to hear other people's thoughts on the different brands out there, favorite uses, etc.

Popcorn flavoring is my favorite non-traditional use. Mixing into sour cream or yogurt as a dip would be close second.

This is an incredible recipe that I’ve made a few times, but also an incredible pain to make and quite expensive to source the ingredients for a condiment

Momofuku just released a version and I ordered it today. Don’t laugh but I bet it’s awesome. Their seasoning salts are exceptional.

The salts are all great. The tingly on roasted veggies is magic. So is the spicy on eggs or anything Asian or pizza. And the savory is good on just about anything at all, particularly toasted meats.

Good to know! I can always use seasoning to dress up veggies.

I don’t think expensive is necessarily better, but I like that the Momofuku version has no MSG or preservatives. I find that umami-rich ingredients have more depth whereas MSG is a bit one-dimensional.

It’s like the condiment version of getting a good bottle instead of Two Buck Chuck, but I still buy LGM.

I like the Don Chilio brand (despite the silly name). The jalapeno is our favorite but if you want more punch there is the Serrano. I have not tried the Habanero. Here is a link to the jalapeno:

I have used them on eggs and sandwiches, but could see using them on pasta and frankly almost anything. They are quite addictive.

Given that I already explained why I prefer a sauce without it, and it has nothing to do with whether it’s natural, what’s your point?

Thanks! Will check it out. Have you tried the XO sauce too?

My mom makes XO sauce once ever few years so I need some good stuff to tide me over until the next time.

Haha, I've been eating it for 10 years, and I never bothered to look at the brand name until just now. A friend who introduced it to me called it "ugly woman sauce," and that's what stuck.

Got the Fly by Jing Chili Crisp and tried it with roasted balsamic carrots. Compared to LGM:

-FbJ is spicier, but less numbing.
-The blend of chilis is very fragrant.
-It uses fermented black beans instead of soy beans. This gives it more umami goodness, though I don’t think that flavor complements as wide a range of dishes as LGM.

I would keep both on hand, and alternate depending on if I want more subtle flavor and crisp texture (LGM) or if I want something bolder and hotter (FbJ).

I’m a wuss and Momofuku’s is way too spicy for me. I did love the savory salt though.

Here’s a new one for me. There were three peppers jalapeño and ?. I got the Habanero cause I like it hot, but yes it’s hot! I can’t believe how light and crunchy these things are though, really great stuff and I’m going back to buy the other to try.

I like the Momofuku and enjoy the heat and funk of it. The jar that I am working on would be no more than spice level 2 out of 5, IMO.

This is my favorite brand at the moment -- the jalapeno is my favorite, as I dont like it quite that hot! The other one is Serrano -- also pretty hot!

Based on this thread I ordered the Momofuku version and love it.

Based on this thread I ordered the Momofuku version and love it.
I had never heard of it before this thread and we shop and eat at a LOT of Asian places. This thread motivated us, so we ordered 9 bottles to try out. So far, we love it!

9 bottles of Momofuku? Or 9 bottles of different brands?

Momofuku only.

Longer story how we ended up with 9. Supposed to be 4. We're going through it about 1 bottle every 3 weeks.
