Here’s my mum’s easy Chinese-style tomato sauce recipe. We pour this sauce over leftover pork chops, but it goes well with chicken and fish as well. Typically, some may add vinegar to this recipe to make it a Chinese sweet and sour sauce, but my family omitted the vinegar as the tomato sauce is already naturally tangy. In place, my mum added cut chillis and chilli sauce for mild heat. I love the fact that my mum does not use cornstarch for thickening the sauce; instead she simmer it to reduce the sauce slightly to the right consistency. The result is really good!
Feel free to season the sauce to taste with sugar, soy sauce and water. This sauce goes well with Chinese-style fried pork chops, chicken and fish.
