      Not bad. I used beef broth. I also think that it was to thin so I will use more cornstarch next time. Otherwise, good basic sauce.

      This sauce tastes pretty good, if a bit mild, but it's not what I would expect from an egg foo yung sauce. For example, it seemed a bit thin, and I noticed the directions don't specify whether or how long it should be simmered. Had I done that I think it might have gotten thicker (or perhaps I should have realized this when it was cooking). If I play with it a bit more I might come up with something that will turn out more to my liking. Must admit, though, it's nice to know that egg foo yung sauce can be very low calorie! Thank you Caryn!
