Combine all ingredients except meat in large saucepan. Cook over medium to medium high heat stirring occasionally. Sauce will thicken as it builds to a gentle boil then add pre cooked meat and continue to heat for 15 minutes. If adding shrimp be sure that shrimp is blanched and reduce cook time to 5-7 minutes. Shrimp will be chewy if you over cook.
Could also be cooked over medium high heat in a crockpot until warm and add pre-cooked meat and continue to warm 20 minutes
