Sam's Signature Sambal! - 8 oz
You'll need at least a double order of this stuff it's very addictive. I love it combined with the anchovies and peanuts (get a double order of that too), together they are bomb. Sweet-wise, I would say it's enough to bring out fruitiness without overwhelming, like a medium sweet. Heat-wise, maybe because I'm korean but I wouldn't call it spicy, very mild at most. I use this for the flavor and umami, not the heat. It is not salty so you can pour it on everything. I might try making my next pizza with this instead of tomato sauce...if I have any left.
I put this sambal on almost everything! Pizza, pasta, rice, rice noodles, stir fried with green beans, and even as a dip for bbq potato chips!
Full of umami, it's not too spicy, but you can add spice to it too if you like. So versatile! Sam, please sell these in bigger tubs!
I understand sambal recipes are very different according to what you are used to growing up. Sam’s is really good but too bitter for my liking. I added a little sugar and modified it to reflect the ones I know from South East Asia and it turned out perfect.
Will be ordering more of Sam’s sambal as soon as my stash runs out!
Sambal was absolutely delicious. Not too spicy. Used it as base for several other recipes .
