Fortun Foods FAQ's

Here are answers to frequently asked questions about Fortun Foods products and how they can turn casual home cooking into delicious gourmet meals in just minutes.

Q. What does “finishing sauce” mean?
A. After your beef, pork, poultry, fish, and pasta has finished cooking, you simply gently heat a finishing sauce and pour it over the top to complete the entree. If you prefer, you can heat the sauce in the pan used to cook your meat. This allows all the flavors and juices of the meat to be included with the sauce. All that’s left is to serve and enjoy!

Q. Are these simmering sauces? Do we need to cook the meat in the sauce?
A. These sauces make cooking so easy. You simply prepare the meat separately and pour Fortun’s Finishing Touch Sauce over the meat when it’s done. That’s all there is to it! Nothing could be easier – or more delicious.

Q. Where can I find your sauces in the store?
A. Look for us in the meat department. We are a fresh-refrigerated item, so you’ll find us next to your choice meats or fish. Look for Fortun Foods products in your grocery store. If you don’t see them, please ask the store manager to carry them!

Q. For how long are your products good after they’ve been opened?
A. Our fresh-refrigerated products can be used within 2 weeks after opening. Be sure to seal the reusable container properly.

Q. Can I freeze Fortun’s Finishing Touch Sauces or Ultimate Gourmet Soups?
A. In general, we feel the product quality is best when served fresh. If you do choose to freeze the product, we recommend thawing it in the refrigerator.

Q. Can I use these sauces in a slow cooker or crock pot?
A. Yes. Your slow-cooked entrees will be delicious! We recommend that you use the low heat setting, however.

Q. The container says 2 to 4 servings. How can I determine a serving size?
A. A serving is calculated to be 2 ounces or 4 tablespoons of sauce poured over each portion of beef, pork, poultry, fish, and pasta. The actual serving size is a personal preference, however. Children may prefer less sauce, while adults will vary the amount to taste.

Q. What do you mean by “restaurant quality”?
A. These sauces and soups are chef-inspired and have been tested in real restaurants. They’ve been prepared in exactly the same way a chef would prepare his cuisine, and with the same high-quality results. We sauté, we simmer, and we add fresh quality ingredients at just the right time. Those ingredients include the same premium stock and spices used by professionals but without any MSG or trans fat.

Q. Will I find these sauces to be really delicate to work with?
A. They’re not delicate, but do not think of these sauces as gravies. You don’t need to stir, baste, or even cook the sauces with the meat. They are ready to use as soon as you open the sealed pouch. Just heat and serve.

Q. Can I purchase Fortun’s Finishing Touch Sauces or Ultimate Gourmet Soups for wholesale or commercial use?
A. Absolutely. Please contact our corporate office at 888-988-1045.
