Date: Thu, 7 Mar 1996 02:16:55 GMT From: (Rain) Here are a couple of hot, tasty Southeast Asian sauces. The recipes are my slight modifications from the ones in SUNDAYS AT MOOSEWOOD RESTAURANT, a wonderful cookbook I highly recommend. In a small frying pan or a wok, heat the oil and stirfry the onions and garlic. After a minute or so, add the hot pepper flakes. Reduce heat and stir constantly so peppers dont burn. As soon as the flakes darken a little, add rest of ingredients, and cook and stir until most of the moisture evaporates and, as they say, "the oil returns"--about 15-20 minutes. The final product should be so well cooked you cant really detect the tomatoes. Recipe can be doubled or tripled. Keeps refrigerated for months.
