This easy sauce blends Grand Marnier orange liqueur with fresh orange juice. The sauce may be used as a glaze for chicken or pork or as a dessert sauce over fruits or plain cake.

Prep Time: 5minutes

Cook Time: 10minutes

Total Time: 15minutes


  • 3/4 cup butter, room temperature
  • 1 cup freshly squeezed orange juice, strained
  • 2 Tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon finely grated orange rind
  • 1/4 cup Grand Marnier liqueur


Slice butter into 1/4-inch slices. In a small saucepan, heat orange juice, sugar and orange rind, on low temperature stirring often for 5 minutes. Increase heat and bring to boil. The mixture will thicken and become syrupy. Whisk the mixture and add the butter, piece by piece. When thoroughly blended, remove from heat and stir in Grand Marnier. Serve immediately.

Yield: about 1-1/4 cups
