I needed to add 2 tablespoons cornstarch-- it was delicious though! I reduced the sugar to 1/3 cup and will cut back to 1/4 cup next time. Too much sugar makes it hard to taste the other flavors. Thanks for a delicious sauce-- I served it with stir-fried chicken, green beans, and red cabbage.

This was horrible. All that oil makes it so greasy. I would give this less than one if possible.

Excellent flavor in this sauce. I would love to try it over shrimp and rice!! I did add about 1 T. of cornstarch to thicken it up a bit. The flavors were just lovely.
