  • 3 Tablespoons sweet chile sauce
  • 1 Tablespoon sriracha
  • 1 Tablespoon oyster sauce
  • 3 Tablespoons crushed peanuts
  • 3 Tablespoons cilantro, finely chopped

  • 1 (16-ounce) box pierogies, such as Mrs. T’s Classic Onion Pierogies

Directions

In a large bowl, whisk together Kung Pao sauce, sweet chile sauce, sriracha, oyster sauce, peanuts, and cilantro until thoroughly combined. Set aside.

Heat oil to 350 degrees F. Deep fry pierogies in oil for 4 minutes, or until pierogies float and are crisp. Use heat-resistant tongs to remove pierogies from the hot oil and add them to the bowl with the sauce. Toss pierogies in the prepared sauce until completely coated. Serve immediately.

Kung Pao Shopping Tip

Staples of Asian cuisine such as ginger, daikon, rice vinegar, and spicy chile sauces like Sriracha add bright, fresh flavors without lots of fuss.

Kung Pao Cooking Tip

Sriracha has good heat but also has flavor - its mild sweetness comes from sun-ripened chile peppers as well as sugar and garlic.
