The best I have tasted
I love this ketjap manis. Just the right sweetness and thickness, without any chemical aftertaste like so many others. Last a good long time, keep it in the refrigerator and pull it out whenever you want sweet and salty to a dish. I use a squeeze bottle to "dress" plates and soups. And it is perfect for marinades.

Love this sauce for its thick sweet qualities. My favorite uses are in stir fry and for marinating and basting pork. I always keep some on hand!

Ketjap Manis - sweet soy

1000 ml - Holland

(pronounced KEH-chup MAH-nis) is an Indonesian sweet soy sauce. Ours is imported from Indonesia via Holland providing a convenient way to buy ketjap manis online. 

This dark, syrupy-thick Indonesian sauce may be substituted for soy sauce in any recipe that also calls for a sweetener like sugar or honey (leave out the sweetener, or adjust the amount to taste), or any dish that you feel could benefit from a warm, slightly sweet undertone. We think it pairs wonderfully with Shoyu (soy sauce), and this marinade recipe is no exception. The ketjap is usually sweetened with palm sugar.

Try mixing equal parts ketjap and melted butter as a marinade for fish (broiled or grilled).

For meat, brush with ketjap, and then baste a few times during cooking.

For a simple but flavorful stir fry, sauté the veggies and meat or chicken (if using) in olive oil, and then add some chopped garlic, ginger and a few spoonfuls of ketjap as you stir fry - you probably won't need to add additional salt or sweetener.

Ingredients: syrup, soy sauce (water, soy beans, wheat flour, salt, caramel, preservative; sodium benzoate), acidifier: lactic acid, salt
