The Stocking Stuffer Gazette: A plethora of sauces from San-J

An assortment of San-J's wonderful sauces will make almost any gluten-free person happy this season!

I often get asked, "What gluten-free pantry staple are you most likely to keep in your house." and I can honestly say that for the past five years, my house has not been without San-J gluten-free sauces.

But over the fall, San-J introduced some new products that are absolutely delicious.  Here's a summary of what's new, but I would like to suggest the Orange Sauce and the Teriyaki sauce.

The other day I made Teriyaki Rib Tips, which were very succulent. I cooked three pounds of rib tips in my iron skillet, covered, with 1/2 cup of water and San-J gf/wf Tamari.  Then, I opened the package and tossed the ribs with a cup of Teriyaki Sauce.  ThEN i broiled them for about 5 minutes til they resembled burnt ends.  A real favorite.

The kind folks at San-J have provided me with so many wonderful samples, but I have to say I have happily bought their products and will continue to do so.

So if you're looking for a gluten-free stocking stuffer or gift, these sauces would make a lot of gluten-free people very happy -- and very hungry.

Follow them on Facebook for coupons, recipes, and general fun!

Here are some great fall and winter recipes San-J sent me.  Stay tuned for the January update, where I'll post some great ideas for fresh New Year's Lunches!

1 Tablespoon olive oil

1/2 medium yellow onion, chopped

2 cloves garlic, minced

1/2 teaspoon smoky paprika

Heat a 4 quart saucepan over medium heat. Add the oil and onion and stir occasionally while sautéing for 2 minutes. Add the garlic and sauté for 30 seconds, making sure not to burn the garlic. Stir in the paprika.

Add half of the can of tomatoes with the juice (save the other half for the end of the recipe), pumpkin, broth, San-J Thai Peanut Sauce, peanut butter and brown sugar. Bring to a boil and then reduce to a simmer. Cover and simmer over low heat for 30 minutes.
