Sour Orange Sauce

Posted on December 19, 2011.


I use this sauce with spicy meat dishes to balance the heat of the peppers.


2 tablespoons olive oil
1 sweet yellow onion, chopped
4 cloves garlic, coarsely chopped
2 cups fresh orange juice
2 teaspoons grated orange zest
1/4 cup fresh lime juice
2 tablespoons honey
4 cups homemade chicken stock
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cut into pieces
2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme
2 tablespoons chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley


Heat the oil in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat on the grates of the grill. Add the onions and cook until soft. Add the garlic and cook for 1 minute.

Add the orange juice, zest, and lime juice and cook until the mixture is reduced to about 1/2 cup.

Stir in the honey. Add the chicken stock and thyme and cook until it´s reduced to a sauce consistency, about 2 cups.

Whisk in the butter, and season with salt and pepper. Stir in the parsley and serve hot.
