kim's sauce

If you are from Southern Oregon and dined on the bad chinese food at Kim's restaurant (now defunct) I was given the recipe for the pink sauce, shrimp sauce, Kim's sauce they were famous for. Posting it on the internet is piracy, I'm sure. It was a best-kept secret until somebody got as drunk as the after-hours patrons and spilled the beans.

Kim's Sauce

Mix all ingredients in order, stirring each time.

1 egg
2 1/2 c. salad oil
7 oz. catsup
1 c. sugar
2 tsp. Chinese hot mustard
1/2 tsp. salt
2/3 c. apple cider vinegar

Blend until smooth
makes about a quart.
Store in refrigerator.

I remember Kim's! I can't wait to make this. I am already grossed out by how fast I will eat it. Thanks!

I ate at Kim's from 1968 to right before it went away. That pink sauce stayed on the tables in squeeze bottles, never refrigerated. When Kim's went out of biz, they liquidated all their stuffs and I got some dinner plates. They are heavy china (what else?) and say "Kim's" and something in Chinese and I believe they will last forever, long past the time of humans.
