The Sriracha Burger is my first recipe for my emerging from my CCZ. I've never cooked with Sriracha before, but I've seen the Sriracha Burger circulate around the blogging world so I figured it was worth the try. I smelled the sauce, and didn't think it smelled overly spicy, even though I knew it was a hot sauce.
I put a small dab on my finger and gave it a taste, and almost immediately my mouth ignited to the temperature of what I assume the 7th circle of hell must be like. I proceed to extinguishing the heat with a few healthy gulps of Chardonnay.
I should had been better prepared, given this depication from The Oatmeal:
A note on the cooking instructions, I'm a loser and don't use the grill. My instructions are for pan cooking burgers, but I've linked to the source recipe so you can get the grilling instructions if you choose to do it that way.
