Homemade Asian Hot Sauce with Thai Peppers

My Homemade Asian Hot Sauce is a flavorful sauce that is similar to sriracha, though a little thinner and smoother, with a slightly deeper flavor. This is my go to sauce on any Asian food, and pizza.

  • 16 oz Thai peppers, ~4 cups
  • ¾ cup water
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 4 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon hoisen
  • 1 cup rice vinegar
  • 1 cup white vinegar


  • Roast peppers in 450 degree oven until starting to char slightly.
  • Roast garlic till softened.
  • Add water, brown sugar, hoisen, garlic, and peppers to blender and puree till smooth.
  • Add vinegar to mixture and blend.
  • Run through food mill on finest setting and pour into saucepan.
  • Heat to 180+ degrees, place in containers and store.
  • If you are bottling the sauce, pour into sanitized bottles while still above 180 degrees, screw on clean caps, and flip upside down for at least 5 minutes to sanitize cap.


The PH of hot sauce needs to be below 4.6 to be shelf stable, for home use I recommend aiming for keeping it under 4.0.
If the sauce is too mild I recommend adding more vinegar, however increasing the ratio of rice vinegar will raise the PH. White vinegar will keep the PH level low.
