Got this off a 30 Minute Meal segment. I love the mix of flavors in this dish. This will last several days in the refrigerator. Cook time is chilling time.

It "Sauce" was pasty. Was awful as per the recipe. Slightly improved with the addition of the brown sugar recommended by other reviewers. Will most definitely not be making this one again.
