Enchilada Sauce

Chinese Plum Sauce

One of my favorite dishes is Moo Shu Beef, a dish complimented with Chinese plum sauce. I’ve purchased numerous jars of the sauce over the years, but they never taste like the wonderful plum sauce served in restaurants. At last, I’ve found a recipe that replicates the flavor and is incredibly easy to make. It’s great with egg rolls, chicken nuggets, or whatever else you can think of. One suggestion is to to baste chicken baked in the oven or cooked on the grill.
