Recipe: Orange-Morita Chili Glaze with SweetLeaf Stevia

Use this sweet and spicy glaze to add the perfect finishing touch to meats and vegetables. A touch of SweetLeaf Stevia Sweetener gives it just the right amount of subtle sweetness.


  • ½ tsp. SweetLeaf Stevia Sweetener
  • 1 oz. olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp. shallots, minced
  • 1 tsp. garlic, sliced or minced
  • 2 cups orange juice
  • 1 cup pomegranate juice
  • 1 Morita chili, crushed
  • 1 Tbsp. adobo spice rub
  • 3 oz. butter, unsalted


In a saucepan, heat olive oil over medium-high heat. Sauté shallots for 1 minute or until shallots become translucent. Add garlic and sauté for 1 minute to allow the garlic to bloom. Add the adobo spice and crushed chili, sautéing for 30 seconds. Then add the orange and pomegranate juices. Bring all ingredients to a boil and reduce heat to medium-high.

Continue reducing ingredients to glaze consistency; approximately 20 minutes. Strain the glaze and return to the saucepan. Just prior to serving, stir in the butter until fully incorporated and add SweetLeaf to complete your glaze. Use spoon to drizzle glaze over dish for taste.
