Homemade Asian Ketchup

This is a fun sauce to infuse Asian flavors into foods. Use it anywhere you would regular ketchup.

Great with chicken nuggets, hash browns, potato chips, Baked Sweet Potato Fries, Asian Ground Beef Meatloaf, and egg rolls.

It’s also good as a dipping sauce for BBQs and adds a special kick to hamburgers.

Meatloaf, fries, and an Asian sauce combined in one meal.

Making Homemade Asian Ketchup

This is one of those fast and easy recipes where you dump everything into one sauce pan, cook it, cool it, eat it.

So, here we go. Literally measure everything directly into the sauce pan and stir.

Bring the ketchup to a low simmer and wait for it to thicken.

This takes about 10 minutes or so.

Stir often so the bottom doesn’t burn.

Once the ketchup thickens, remove from the heat and allow it to completely cool.

At this point you can either serve, or place in the refrigerator for future use.

It’s a great make-ahead condiment to have on-hand or before a special occasion.

Use it like you would regular tomato ketchup, except this one has a zing!

In other words, the more crushed red peppers you add, the more zing you get.

A perfect condiment with a little zing for dipping, or use as a sauce in recipes.
