I made this recipe substituting a lime and added a little brown sugar since I was out of honey. They turned out OK...I think there was something missing...maybe fresh ginger? Also my sauce didn't thicken but maybe that's because I used the 'quick' method. Next time I used the quick method I would cut the water down by 1/3-1/4 cup. Otherwise good. Thanks for the recipe!
I took these to a potluck with my rubber stamping group and they were a big hit. I didn't put in the peppercorns but otherwise followed the recipe - well OK, so I don't measure exact measurements and there was probably more garlic than 1T but tasted good and house smelled wonderful. Thanks for a great tasting, easy to make recipe.
The had a light flavor, not at all Chinese. Also they did not get crisp. The cooking did however make a wonderful smell throught the house. I will try them again but use a different method such as cook for an hour first then put sauce over.
