REVIEW: Tropical Spices – Pacific Burn Hot Sauce

This is our 3rd review for Tropical Spices. The good people behind Tropical Spices wanted us to do 2 of their sauces with a set of 3 reviewers and 1 other sauce with another set of 3. The first one was for their hottest product, Flamin’ Phantom hot sauce which you can see HERE. Next we did their Calypso Sauce which got pretty high marks from 2 of our reviewers and you can see that HERE. Now we have their Pacific Burn hot sauce which uses Thai chiles to capture a sauce made for some Asian cuisine. Our reviewers for this review are Mike & Jen, Derrick Wood & Xero.

If you mention ILOVEITSPICY.COM on the comment section of your online order, (besides a FREE 4oz Guava BBQ/1st Online order) Tropical Spices, LLC will also send you their Mango glaze , FREE as well. Just for being supporters of our reviews.

A big thanks to Christopher & Jenny Porro for letting us review some of their product line, and doing that special deal with our bloggers. I wish you much success to you and your company. Hopefully we will catch you at a show in the near future. Before we get to their review here is a recipe using this Asian influenced hot sauce:

Savory Asian Beef

Preparation Time: 1/2 hour Serving Size: 2 – 4 people
1 teaspoon
Pacific Burn
1 lb boneless Sirloin Steak, cut in strips
1 medium Onion, chopped
1 teaspoon Hoisin Sauce
1 teaspoon Sesame Oil
1/2 teaspoon Garlic, minced
1/3 teaspoon Ginger – ground
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1/4 teaspoon Sugar
Salt & Pepper to taste

In a large storage bag put all ingredients to create a marinade. Add beef strips. Close tight and refrigerate for 1 hour, turning several times, so all the beef strips get equal marinade. Heat a large skillet over medium high heat. Cook beef strips for about a minute each side. Serve with a Veggie Skillet (recipe under Verde Sauce)

    So this sauce got reviews all over the board, huh? I stick with my rating. I would like to have seen the first taste on video from the other reviewers. I love that unrehearsed, honest initial reaction.
    I am in agreeance with Xero about one thing, the taste was confusing. Though, I thought that was a positive personally. I mean, as you heard in my video, it even had me thinking about olives for some reason. Bizarre. Anyhow, thanks to everyone at Tropical Spices LLC!

    The initial flavor started off fine, but after a few seconds, I was wondering where the vinegar was. I still cant belive I was thinking that. Maybe all this vinegar sauce is changing my taste buds. I liked everything else about the sauce and I think it would be great with a little vinegar bite.
