    dojemi's Note:

    A Weight Watchers recipes that tastes identical to the lobster sauce served in Chinese restaurants in our area. I've always wondered why it's called lobster sauce when there is no lobster in the recipe nor does it taste like lobster. To the best of my knowledge Chinese restaurants use pork so it could be an alternative to the ground beef.

      Its my understanding that its called Lobster sauce because it a sauce for lobster not made with it. We really enjoyed this sauce. I added scallops to it and served over brown rice. I didn't have corn starch (DD used it for a science experiment) so I tried to use flower. I found it a bit watery and next time may even leave out some water. Crab legs were on sale so I bought some and made them to eat on the side. It turns out that the crab meat was very good with this sauce. Since it is a lobster sauce I bet it would be wonderful with an actual lobster too. I may also try it with different fish. All in all very good and I'll make it again. Thanks for posting. Served broccoli, stir fried with sesame oil, garlic, and soy sauce.

      Made this last night, tossed in shrimps, scallops and steamed broccoli. Served over rice noodles and it was a hit at our house. I did substitute the ground beef and used ground pork and used chicken base instead of broth cubes. This recipe is a keeper! Thanks for sharing it!

      Okay...I knew I was kidding myself, I knew there wasn't any way this could taste like lobster, but still I was curious, I didn't find it too bad- but my DH and DS's found this very strong tasting, where as they could only take a few bites and decided that was enough, was a fun experience anyway. As for lobster tasting..*sigh* I do wish! Thanks for posting this dojemi!
