How delicious does this look?! One of my most popular recipes on this site and great reviews on Pinterest! I hope you can try it!
- 1 cup rice vinegar
- 1 cup water
- 1 1/2 cup sugar
- 2 tbs fresh Ginger optional
- 3 tsp garlic
- 1 cup Thai chili peppers rinsed and stems removed
- salt for taste
- 3 tsp + 1 tbs ketchup
- For the Slurry
- 1/2 cup plus 2 tbs of the sweet chili sauce you made.
- 4 tbs of flour
Add the first 7 ingredients and only 2 tsp of the ketchup (add the rest of the ketchup later) to a blender and mix.
Add the chili mixture to a large cast iron pan over medium-high heat until it boils. Once the sauce comes a boil, simmer. Add the rest of the ketchup and stir.
Remove about 10 tbs of the sauce from the skillet and place it into a small bowl. Add the flour and whisk well until smooth with no clumps. Add the slurry to the skillet and mix.
Return sauce to a boil for 2 minutes then simmer for 5-10 minutes until your desired thickness. The sauce will start to thicken. If not thick enough add more sauce (about a tbs) to a bowl and bit more flour (1/2 tbs) Let the sauce cool to room temperature then pour into a jar with an air tight lid.
The longer you cook this sauce the thicker it will become. To achieve the bright vibrant red color, I like to use a good amount of chili peppers and a bit of ketchup.
