Has any one ever used or cooked with it? Seems tasty but I have never used it.

I have, but it works just as nice as a dip for malted bread, salads, for mixing in with soft cheese to serve with jaket potatoes (and crispy sweetcure bacon, with onon rings and fresh pepper slices)

I always have it in the pantry but find I only use it when making a stir fry or using it in fried rice, any Asian dish, really. It's ok but not really a necessity, I think.

I use it to bathe in, it's great for the feet.

Use it all the time with Asian food, need to start using it for cooking other stuff. It would go GREAT with meaty chili or beef stew, and putting some of it in a marinade for steaks and pork would go well, too.

I see no downside to using it for anything that needs heat, and damn it brings the heat!

Thanks all,

I was thinking stir fry as well. It has a unique taste.

It has a nice taste but does need to be used sparingly. I also really like it in a Thai beef noodle salad dish. For some reason, I just really like the oil with beef but works well with chicken and shrimp too.

I make it.  Its simple.

Take one cup of red pepper flakes and two cups of good peanut oil.  Heat in a sauce pan and allow it to sit overnight. Do not overheat and burn the flakes!
Strain through a coffee filter and put in a nice bottle with pour spout.

It will last indefinately if you do not listen to the food police.

If you have a cold - use it! Man, spicy food really gets my head feeling better when I have a cold. If the chimney is clogged, start a fire! :)

That did not work real well with whatever I have right now... the spices were affecting my breathing. I had to eat wimpy for almost a whole week!

It's also very good mixed in with soy sauce and other things as a dip for potstickers or eggrolls.

But I will try it this weekend.

You can also use it for frying dumplings.  Be sure to have an exhast fan. It will open everyones sinuses as soon as it starts to get hot.
In fact, thats what i'm going to have for lunch.  Ling Ling pot stickers fried in chili oil and dipped into my homemade dipping sauce. I have a bag of them in the freezer.  From freezer to pan with a little water to start.  Easy.
