This was really good, and authentic tasting, without to much hassle. The thickness was right on and the flavor was outstanding. I also used red peppers, and the flavoring was subtle, which was OK by me! I served this with Hawaiian Meatballs and it was perfect! I'll make this again; thanks for sharing, Lavender Lynn.

Delicious sauce! Made Hawaiian Meatballs to go along with it :) My DH had 2 helpings of them both. He loved it and so did I.

I tagged this for the Feburary 2008 Chinese/Vietnamese New Year Tag Game. Thanks Lavender Lynn for sharing the recipe :)
