Oelek, or ulek, as it is correctly spelled in Indonesian, means a stone mortar (pestle is ulek-ulek). As the name suggests, sambal oelek is a straightforward crushed chile sauce or paste – but this one isn't Indonesian at all. It's a Vietnamese-style crushed chile sauce from California, and is found on the table of just about every Vietnamese restaurant in North America. More vinegary, less complex, and hotter than the other sambal oelek we sell.
