This very easy sugar-free and low-carb recipe for Chinese-style plum sauce goes great with Moo Shu Chicken. If you don't have access to sugar-free plum jam, you can use blackberry or apricot.

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup sugar-free plum jam (I used Jok N Al brand for this recipe)  You can also use sugar-free apricot jam if it's easier to find.
  • 1 Tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon vinegar (any kind except balsamic)
  • 1/4 teaspoon Chinese Five Spice Powder

Preparation

Mix ingredients together. Taste. The final result will partly depend on the sweetness and thickness of the jam. If it seems too sweet and "jammy," add a little more vinegar. If it's too thick, add water or a little more soy sauce.

Store covered in refrigerator. Keeps up to a week.

Makes 4 servings of slightly less than 2 Tablespoons each.

Nutritional Information: Each serving has 2 grams effective carbohydrate and 13 calories.
