This was delicious!! I omitted the salt, and followed the recipe as written...it's easy to make, and the sauce was wonderful; I did thin it with some of the mandarin juice, like Rita L did. This is a great recipe!! Teresa
This is easier then it looks And quite good. I did have left over rice which cut down some of the cooking. I omitted the salt in step #9 I thought the soy would bring plenty of salt to the dish and it did. I did not discard the mandarin juice for it helped thin the sauce for it was a bit to thick. Being a lamb lover I really enjoyed this dish. The gamey taste of lamb was cut by the mandarins which was refreshing. I also topped it with thinly sliced scallions. I think this would be a good way to serve left over lamb. Just slice and go on to step #2. I hope you enjoy this as much as I did.
