TNT Basic Orange Sauce w/variationsblissfulThis sauce started out as a quest to recreate hunan orange beef and hunan orange chicken. The basic sauce is below with variations below that.
In a saucepan combine-
Zest from one orange
juice and whatever pulp wants to come with from that orange
6 oz orange concentrate
2 Tablespoons soy sauce
1 Cup sugar (honey or corn syrup combination optional)
Simmer this mixture until it makes a nice medium thick syrup the consistency of honey. Store in pourable containers in the refrigerator for use on beef, chicken, pork, fish, seafood.
1. Variation for some hotness: add a chopped chili pepper (the hotness you like) in the beginning. Store in pourable container in the refrigerator.
2. Variation for hunan orange beef or chicken: add the chopped pepper as in the first variation and chopped garlic and chopped ginger in proportions you like (1 tablespoon of each to start). Use to glaze the vegetables and meat in the hunan dish.
I made this again last night, one jug of the basic recipe and one of first variation (for me).3 stars
