LOVE! This was great with chicken and apple fingers. I used about a cup of beef broth because my tamarind paste wasn't as concentrated and I wanted it a little thicker so I can use it as a dip.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a saucepan over medium heat, bring the vinegar and brown sugar to a low boil. Whisk until the sugar is dissolved and reduce by half to produce a syrup.
  2. Reduce the heat to low and stir in the pre-heated beef broth, (I do this in the microwave until it's about 110 degrees F.) Then stir in the tamarind paste, garlic, and the ginger. Allow to reduce just a little and then strain the sauce into a serving bowl.
  3. NOTE: Tamarind sauce can be obtained at an ethnic grocer (some sell online).
