Very good. I stupidly doubled the sauce, which diluted the "kick" of the jalapenos (which we all love) so I won't do that again next time, it didn't need the extra sauce at all. Everyone really liked this one, though!

WOW! I didn't think I would like this, as the whole sweet and sour thing usually dosen't appeal to me. I Made almost exactly to the receipe, I just added a little more soy sauce. I also added broccolli and carrot slivers and my meal was perfect! I used fresh jalapeno and served over white rice. I will definitely make again!
