For the Orange Glaze (makes 2 cups)

  • 1 ¼ c orange juice
  • ½ c granulated sugar
  • 3 TBSP rice wine vinegar
  • 2 TBSP soy sauce
  • 1 TBSP apple cider vinegar
  • 1 TBSP orange zest (optional)
  • 1 tsp ginger, grated
  • ½ tsp garlic, minced
  • ½ tsp crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1 ½ TBSP cornstarch
  1. To a small saucepan over medium heat, add the orange juice and sugar. Cook until the sugar has dissolved, about 2 minutes.
  2. Add the rice wine vinegar, soy sauce, apple cider vinegar, orange zest (if using), ginger, garlic and red pepper. Cook for another 3 minutes while stirring constantly.
  3. To a small mixing bowl, add the cornstarch and 2 ½ tablespoons water. Stir until smooth.
  4. Turn heat to low and stir the cornstarch slurry into the orange sauce. Cook while constantly stirring until it thickens, about 5 minutes. The sauce should be glossy and thick enough to coat the back of a spoon. Remove from heat and set aside.
