What a great all purpose sauce. Definitely used beef broth instead of water and I also sautéed one minced garlic clove in a tablespoon of olive oil. Just before the minced garlic turns a golden color, I added the broth and spices including seasoned rice vinegar . Thanks for the recipe.

This is a great general purpose sauce. We had it with egg rolls and it was wonderful. Will keep it on hand to use with other dishes. Made for ZWT 2008
