Frank’s RedHot Xtra Hot Sauce

"I've been putting it on everything I eat!"

Frank’s RedHot sauce come in a few different varities which are all simular tasting, and have quite a watery consistency   This variety of Frank’s RedHot is ‘Xtra Hot’, and to be honest I always thought that the standard RedHot was quite weak in heat, and I much prefer this variety.

Frank’s RedHot sauce is more of a splash on sauce, rather than a thick table sauce, and this makes it perfect for adding to steaks, eggs, pasta, and great for using in cooking.  I often make Buffalo chicken wings using this sauce alone and they always turn out delicious.

One thing that will strike you about Frank’s RedHot sauce is the vinegar hit, it’s really quite acidic which makes it prefect for using on fatty foods.  Flavours of Cayenne Pepper come through well, and a sweet unami note finishes the sauce, especially when heated up.

One of the those sauces that becomes really addictive, and you end up having it on every food you eat.

      It certainly is hotter, enough to make your lips burn if eaten straight but nothing more. I’ve used it on Wings a few times now and makes a hot wing for sure, but I’d still love a version that is hotter again.

      I bought this in Sainsburys (UK) in August if that helps, mind you it’s now disappeared again 🙁
