Don't be intimidated by the list of ingredients. The sauce is SO good.

Actually, the first time I tried it, it was a touch bland, like seashorewalker says. However! Playing with the recipe & making it my own really spiced it up! The trick, in my opinion, is using 2 TABLESPOONS of Honey in the marniade & 2 or 3 Tablespoons of Honey in the sauce - depending on my sweet tooth that night. Also, use Teriyaki sauce instead of Soy Sauce. I probably also use more, fresh ginger & garlic than it calls for, but not much... maybe a 1/2 tablespoon more. Then instead of the carrots, I throw in some straw mushrooms, water chestnuts (get the whole & chop yourself - just tastes better), & bamboo shoots. You just need to play with it.
I made this exactly as the recipe states with no substitutions other that a few mushrooms in place of the full amount of snow peas. It was a tad bit too bland for us. Not enought flavor. And, the instructions do not say when add the ingredient mixture from step 1. I really went into this a super positive attitude that it would work out but the final product ended up being just to bland for us.
