I haven't found a sweet Thai chili sauce that I really like, so when you make more, it would be great if you wrote up a post on it.
Thanks so much Gary. The stuff is so quick and easy to make it wouldn't justify a thread. Here is the recipe though.

1/2 cup rice vinegar (or white vinegar)
1/2 cup white sugar (plus 2 tablespoons)
1/4 cup water
2 tablespoons hoisin sauce
2 tablespoons sherry (or cooking sherry)**
2 tablespoons garlic (minced)
1/2 to 1 tablespoon dried crushed chili (1 tablespoon makes spicy-hot sauce)
1 1/2 tablespoons cornstarch (dissolved in 3 to 4 tablespoons cool water)

Place all ingredients—except the cornstarch-water mixture—in a saucepan or pot and bring to a boil.

Reduce heat to medium and let boil for 10 minutes, or until reduced by half. (Note that the vinegar will be quite pungent as it burns off--rice vinegar is less strong than regular white vinegar.)

Reduce heat to low and add the cornstarch-water mixture. Stir to incorporate and continue stirring occasionally until the sauce thickens about 2 minutes. Then remove from heat and taste-test.

Pour sauce into a small bowl or jar and serve as a condiment, dip, or marinade.

When you are taste-testing, you should taste sweet first, followed by sour, then spicy and salty notes. If the sauce isn't sweet enough, add a little more sugar. If it's not spicy enough, add more chili.

(**I used 1 tablespoon each of Grenadine and Vermouth)

Adjust accordingly for your tastes where the garlic and crushed red pepper are concerned. This makes a pretty small batch so every time I make it I double the recipe

looks like a great tasting meal Robert.
Appreciate it Jim. Yes, it was pretty tasty. Exceeded my expectations when I thought through making it. I believe it was the cranberries that set it over the top though.

I would need a bib just for the drool just seeing that. Very nice . . .
Nah...just hang your head over your plate and let that catch the drool :emoji_wink:

Hell ya, Robert! You da man!
Thanks Derek!! Hadn't seen you for a few days. Great to see you're still with us.

Awesome griddle of food!! Love the flavors on the pork and also the salad. I gotta do some Thai of some kind soon. Great cook Robert.
Thanks so much guys. I was happy with the way all the flavors came together and created something totally different but very, very good.
