My mom is Chinese, and often catered for special events. Everyone always asked for the recipe for the sauce that she marinated her meats in. It is savory and delicious, and I've never tasted anything like it anywhere else! Whether you're baking, grilling, or pan-frying your meats, this can't be beat! I make several jars of this stuff at Christmas to give away as gifts. Everyone loves it! You can use this sauce either as a marinade or in stir-fry.
