Recipe by L. Duch

I love this sweet gingery dish. It is easy to make and is versatile using other meats. This is delicious served over a bed of steamed rice. This is one of my families favorites.

Wow! This is a great dish. I followed Judy Jansen's suggestion and doubled the sauce. So glad I did because this sauce is wonderful. (I thicken the sauce with corn starch because we like a thicker sauce). I served this over brown rice...wonderful meal! Thanks again LeeAnn Duch for another great recipe! :-)
