Top Review by TexasKelly

I will have to be honest and say we really did not care for this. I found the peanut butter taste to be too strong. Perhaps if made again, using less pb would help. To counteract that, I used a LOT more soy sauce and some fish sauce & even some hot sauce, but the pb was just so overpowering. I see that a lot of other people really enjoyed it, so I think it is more a case of our personal tastes and not the fault of the recipe. That being said, I do think the sauce itself was missing something tastewise. Also I think it could use some veggies, maybe some broccoli or snow peas, just to addd a bit more to it. I always enjoy trying something new and thank you for posting the recipe.
