There is a little restaurant in South Carolina that serves the world’s most delicious, hot roast beef sandwich. For years I have tried to unlock the secret to the spicy mayonnaise they slather on the bun. But every spice I added to my own mayo mix at home seemed to take the flavor in the wrong direction, until this past Sunday when I literally bumped into what must be the exact recipe they use… courtesy of REAL SIMPLE MAGAZINE.
Spread this spicy mayo on top of burgers, chicken sandwiches, fries, BLTs or a wedge salad. It will enhance fish, crab cakes or drop a dollop on top of those already delicious corn cakes I gave you the recipe for earlier this summer. The secret ingredient is the Asian chili garlic sauce which I was easily able to find at my grocery store.
Trust me when I tell you this will become your GO-TO mayo to elevate the flavors of EVERYTHING you use it on. The recipe is simple and strange sounding but give this a try..you will LOVE it!
1/4 cup Asian chili garlic sauce (Huy Fong Foods, Inc.)

No kidding, that’s it! (No wonder it was featured in REAL SIMPLE – HA!)
