This easy recipe for glazed carrots makes a nice side dish for a family dinner or holiday occasion. The combination of flavors in the five-spice powder―sour, bitter, sweet, pungent, and salt―add a powerful punch to the sweet glazed carrots.
- 3 cups carrots, (chopped on the diagonal into 1/4 to 1/2 inch pieces)
- 3/4 cup water
- 2 tablespoons light soy sauce
- 2 tablespoons brown sugar
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1 teaspoon five-spice powder
Steps to Make It
Wash and chop the carrots. Combine the water, soy sauce, and sugar and set aside.
Melt the butter in a frying pan over medium heat. Add the carrots.
Add the five-spice powder, stirring in with the carrots.
Add the water, soy sauce, and sugar mixture. Bring to a boil.
Lower the heat, cover and gently simmer the carrots until they are tender and pierce easily with a fork, about 10 minutes.
Remove the lid. Turn the heat up to high and cook the carrots, stirring occasionally, until the liquid is burned off (5 to 7 minutes). Serve hot.
