Sweet-and-Sour Orange Sauce


"I was in the mood for some egg rolls and, when trying to think of something to go with them, I opened the fridge and saw way too many oranges.

Perfect over egg rolls, shrimp, chicken, rice, or even stir-fried veggies."

Tasty recipe! I think next time I would follow Buckwheat Queen's suggestion and use apple cider vinegar. We definitely enjoyed!

This is so good and super easy. I love the fact that it doesn’t use pineapple juice- great for anyone with allergies. I used apple cider vinegar instead of red. I also used homemade dark brown s...
