Best substitute for Crystal hot sauce in this recipe?

TorontoJo | Feb 15, 2012 12:04 PM

I'm making this recipe for Natchitoches meat pies and we don't get Crystal hot sauce in Toronto. Any thoughts as to the best substitute? I've read that Tabasco is too vinegary compared to Crystal, so I'm wondering if I'm better off using something more neutral, like sriracha? Or maybe a mix of the two?

Any thoughts are appreciated. :)
