What is Maggie Sauce? It was aningredient in a cooking Hearts recipe but have no idea what it is.
Maggi, not "Maggie." It's a condiment / flavor enhancer / seasoning sauce, now made by Nestle. It's something like soy sauce but with a great deal more going on.

When I tell the story of how I learned to make congee, and the final step in the process of going from "something missing" to "just right" was a few drops of Maggi, the Asians always laugh because it's so true.
