Oyster Sauce Baste

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Color Guard Mom

I got this recipe from a friend in Hawaii. She made some incredible spare ribs using this baste. These are minimal instructions, but it's all I have. Cooking time is approximate. Put here for safe keeping.

The taste is fantastic! Updated: this was a thick sticky sauce that didn't drip, and it was so good I almost ate the rib bones. Please see my review system. Step 1 should indicate how long this sauce should be boiled. I researched other soy sauces, and decided to simmer mine for 30 minutes. That yielded a thick sauce ready for canning. To my surprise, 2 oz. fresh gingerroot required 6-7 inches of gingerroot, finely grated. (I'm relieved that I bought enough!) The sauce yielded 1 1/2 cups. of thick sauce. Please let me know when you update the recipe so I can amend my rating. Made for Photo Tag.
