Lasang Pinoy: Saucy


Beef with mushrooms and broccoli in oyster sauce

One of culinary commandments is that a sauce should not overpower a dish, but rather enhance it. I notice that many upscale restaurants believe a dish appears more elegant when graced with just a teeny tiny serving of sauce. Can you imagine pasta swimming in pesto sauce being served in an Italian restaurant? But I like my pasta with a lot of sauce...I want sauce in every forkful. Sauce is always generous when I cook at home---be it salad dressing, pasta sauce, salsa and any dish with sauce. As my brothers would say, "Sauce pa lang, ulam na." Check out this mouthwatering dish of Prawns with Aligue (crab fat) Sauce from Abe...a killer sauce to die for!
