1/24/08 THIS IS A KEEPER!! My Family loved this. I decided as the marinade looked so good, NOT to waste it, but to turn it into a sauce, so after marinating, I added 1 cup more Orange Juice, 1 tablespoon more cornstarch 1 tablespoon brown sugar 1/2 teaspoon salt mixed it up thoroughly and heat in a saucepan over a low heat until thickened.. it made a great sauce. Thanks for posting this recipe.
