When I realized that the reason I like to go to Chinese buffets off and on to eat was because I LOVE the sauces for General Tsao's Chicken/Tofu and for dumplings as well as other sauces, I decided it must be possible to find recipes on the internet.
As it happens, I was right, at least to some extent. I have found many recipes. Some of them I have tried. Some did not do it for me. Some were pretty good but I did not "save" them so I just made up my own recipes remembering the ingredients for the most part. Now I don't have the compulsion to go out to eat! My own sauce, my own vegetables, my own sauteed tofu....YAY!
My most recent dipping sauce recipe is here:
2/3 cups Braggs Liquid Aminos (could use soy sauce)
1/3 cup rice wine vinegar
2 Tablespoons sesame oil
2 Tablespoons Hoisin sauce (I used Lee Kum Kee)
2 Tablespoons garlic chile sauce (I used Lee Kum Kee)
Stir these together well and refrigerate until needed. OR you could just spoon it down the gullet immediately.
For breakfast I spooned this sauce over a bowl with steamed broccoli, lightly fried egg, and sauteed sweet potatoes. Really yummy and pretty low on the glycemic index, I think...
