Joanne's Asian Sauce

Joanne Bellezza-Loughlin


This sauce is the result of my, son, Michael and I experimenting with dinner one night. I had grilled some pork chops and we were looking for a sauce to liven them up. We just started throwing ingredients in a pan and this is what we came up with. We enjoy it on pork or chicken!
