A couple of weeks ago I wrote about the Tesco value curry sauce jar as part of my new tried and tested feature where we will be trying lots of different value products and reporting back. I was really pleased at how positive the comments were as I was half expecting lots of people to say that cooking from scratch was the only right thing to do.
Today I wanted to tell you about our experiences with the M Savers Sweet and Sour sauce from Morrisons which we bought for the bargain price of 25p!
I completely failed with taking note of the ingredients for this but I did read through them and nothing jumped out at me as being too bad. #BadFoodieBlogger I’m going to blame the fact that I was in a hurry cooking tea as Miss Frugal decided at the last minute that she was going to Movie Club when she’d said earlier that she was going to give it a miss.
Anyway, I had some Quorn chicken pieces in the freezer and some noodles in the cupboard so I made sweet and sour noodles with it by cooking the quorn and noodles separately and then putting it all in one big pan with the sauce and stirring until the sauce was heated through.
It took 10 minutes tops from start to finish so it definitely gets a tick in the super easy and convenient box!
I added no veg at all so you can see from the picture that the sauce has a little veg in it – I would bulk it out maybe by adding some more if I was making it again and I had some time but it was lovely as it was – especially with the noodles.
Miss Frugal wasn’t keen on the Quorn but she picked that out and ate all of the noodles with the sauce on them. I might even just make sweet and sour noodles for her next time rather than adding chicken or prawns.
The verdict? We really did enjoy the taste of this and it’s quite a flexible sauce as you can searve it with added veg, most meats, rice, noodles, I’d even be tempted to use it as a stir fry sauce! Not bad for 25p is it?
