       Title: RED COOKING SAUCE FOR MEAT SHANGHAINESE
  Categories: Chinese, Sauces, Loo
       Yield: 2 cups
  
       2 c  Water
       2 oz Dry sherry or rice wine
       3 tb Dark soy
       2 tb Brown sugar
       4    Slice ginger
       1    Star anise
       2    Scallions
       1    Slice dried tangerine
            -peel
  
   To use these sauces: bring them to a slow boil in a
   large kettle. Add meat or poultry, return to slow
   boil, reduce heat to simmer, and cook until done.
   Drain meat and serve with some sauce (optionally
   thickened with cornstarch-water) on the side. Save and
   reuse leftover sauce, which gets richer with each use.
   Leftover sauce should be salted lightly, boiled a few
   minutes, skimmed, and cooled before storage in the
   refrigerator. If it is to be kept a long time it
   should be boiled and skimmed once in awhile.
