Chinese Red Sauce

I grew up in a small town with few restaurants.  Not to mention my family rarely, RARELY ate out.  We did have a Chinese restaurant in our town and they served a Chinese red sauce with their egg rolls.  Since it was one of the few places we ate out at it remains a bit of a comfort food to me.  Last year I cooked a big Chinese dinner when some of my siblings were in town and I searched and experimented until I ended with this recipe.  It tastes just like the one from my childhood, and is really good paired with egg rolls, BBQ pork, or fried shrimp.  If you like things spicy, make sure to put out some Chinese hot mustard too.
