I don't like to drown my food in sauce but sometimes a nice garlic sauce makes a good complimentary flavour to a good piece of meat.
I don't disagree with that, but seasoning is more of a "note", if you will. It enhances in minor ways, hot sauce, to me, completely overpowers the flavor in favor of pure spice and would mean that a slab of cardboard would taste the same as filet mignon, when slathered with hot sauce. Perhaps harder to chew! 🥵

The guy who invented Sriracha is pure genius and turned him into a multi millionaire . Now a number of products are flavored with the hot sauce but my favorite way is to enjoy a pumping hot soup bowl of Pho with lean beef, sliced jalapenos , fresh and crispy bean spouts , organ meats and douced with Sriracha at my local Vietnamese restaurant. Eating, slurping and sweating from the heat go hand in hand with me.

He didn't invent squat. Fermented hot sauce has been a thing for millennia, tabasco, chili paste..................... the list goes on and on and has been available in markets long before the Siracha brand. He's good at marketing I'll give him that and only that. Also the owner of the company may be a bleep for not honoring contracts with the farms as he's eyeball deep in litigation, his issues with various farmers may be causing other hot sauces along with his own to have production problems as some peppers aren't getting grown thnx to his alleged issues. A few years ago he lost around million to one of the farms and I believe that's still under appeal
All that said when the shortages first hit I started fermenting my own from local peppers from the farm market and the boys like mine better:joyfull: I came up with my own pepper blend but didn't invent squat, siracha is just jalapenos;)

Sriracha put hot sauce on the map with a number of products now flavored with the hot sauce and a number of places incorporating Sriracha into their menu items - Burger King, McDonalds , Taco Bell, White Castle, Chik Fil A , Subway etc. Has chili paste made it to these markets before Sriracha came into the picture?? Don't think so. It is not just jalapenos as a matter of my opinion.

Might be true in the US. Oddly enough however, the US did not invent the stuff, nor put it on the map. 🙄

The sauce was first produced in the 1940s by a Thai woman named Thanom Chakkapak in the town of Si Racha (or Sriracha), Thailand.[6][7] The Sriracha sauce itself may be an adaptation of a Cantonese garlic and chili sauce originally from Shunde, China. In the early 1900s, Cantonese immigrants settled in Si Racha, and their garlic and chili sauce was sold in Thailand for decades before the first bottles of Sriraja Panich were produced.[8]

In the United States, sriracha is associated with a jalapeño-based sauce produced by Huy Fong Foods[9][10] ………The Huy Fong Foods Sriracha was first produced in the early 1980s for dishes served at American phởrestaurants.[10]

So it was first produced in the US over 40 years after it was first produced in Thailand and over 80 years after the original version of it was first sold there.

David Tran a refugee from Vietnam coming to the USA in 1979, selling sauce out of his vehicle in 1980 and with his success is currently worth $1B as of 2023 at 78 years old. He's a story of an immigrant that came to our great country with little to nothing and became successful.

None of what I posted contradicts that.

You seemed to be claiming that he invented it.

Let me rephrase / he perfected it and now the hot sauce is in many companies food and snack products and a great condiment when enjoying a big hot bowl of Pho.
He just used the standard recipe there was no perfecting and you're not acknowledging the fact he allegedly ripped off his fellow refugees
