Chinese-Style Plum Sauce

By

Updated February 11, 2008

This very easy sugar-free and low-carb recipe for Chinese-style plum sauce goes great with Moo Shu Chicken. If you don't have access to sugar-free plum jam, you can use blackberry or apricot.

Ingredients:

  • 1/3 cup sugar-free plum jam (I used Jok N Al brand for this recipe)
  • 1 Tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon vinegar (any kind except balsamic)
  • 1/4 teaspoon Chinese Five Spice Powder

Preparation:

Mix ingredients together. Taste. The final result will partly depend on the sweetness and thickness of the jam. If it seems too sweet and "jammy," add a little more vinegar. If it's too thick, add water or a little more soy sauce.

Store covered in refrigerator. Keeps up to a week.

Makes 4 servings of slightly less than 2 Tablespoons each.

Nutritional Information: Each serving has 2 grams effective carbohydrate and 13 calories.
