SWEET N SOUR SAUCE
Genghis Grill Restaurant Copycat Recipe
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup pineapple juice concentrate
1 tablespoon ginger
1 cup white vinegar
1 tablespoon paprika
1 teaspoon crushed red pepper
Mix the pineapple juice concentrate with 1 cup of vinegar in a large mixing bowl. Stir the ingredients to blend the liquid well. Add the sugar, ginger, paprika, and crushed red pepper.
Whisk all the ingredients together gently until the sugar dissolves. This process takes around 3 to 5 minutes. If you allow the pineapple juice to warm up to room temperature prior to adding it to the recipe, the sugar will dissolve faster. Pour the sauce into a container that can be used for marinating while cooking, or for a future date. Let the mixture rest for up to 30 minutes before using.
Panda Management Company, Inc. (PMC), based in Southern California, has grown dynamically ever since 1983 when it opened its first Panda Express, its most successful operation. As that name suggests, Panda Express units are fast-service Chinese restaurants, now found in over 34 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and Japan. Altogether, PMC manages over 300 Panda Express Restaurants, six Panda Inn Restaurants, eight Hibachi-San Restaurants, and seven Panda Panda locations. Panda Inns, the first of which opened in 1973, are all located in Southern California, as are the Panda Pandas, upscale, gourmet Chinese food restaurants. The Hibachi-San Restaurants, featuring Japanese cuisine, are located in shopping mall food courts, about half of which are at select sites outside California. The much more ubiquitous Panda Express Restaurants are located in five basic operating environments: mall food courts; supermarkets and retail chains; shopping centers and key intersections; university and college campuses; and airports, casinos, and sports arenas.
