Lao Gan Ma or Old Grandmother is a popular brand of sauces in China and can be found in many Guizhou cuisines. There are many different flavors such as Spicy Chili Crisp, Chili Oil with Black Bean, Fried Chili in Oil, Hot Chile Sauce, and Spicy Bean Paste, etc.
These condiments are used in noodle dishes, fried rice, soups, dumplings, etc. Additionally, I like using these on my vegetables and over eggs. They are jam-packed with flavors and will enhance any dish you are preparing.
Using the Lao Gan Ma Hot Chili Sauce, I am making chili oil to combine with rice noodles for a quick and flavor-packed meal. This can be substituted with any Lao Gan Ma condiment of your choice. I like the Hot Chili Sauce because it has additional ingredients such as chunky kohlrabi and peanuts that add texture and uniqueness to the dish. I also topped the noodles with the Spicy Chili Crisp for extra crunch and flavor.
