4.5 stars, DH wants this again, but I think some cornstarch would improve the sauce (it was a bit watery). If your kids like Chinese five-spice powder, this makes a great family meal for those "little pieces of gold" as MDM called lamb chops; the sauce was not overly sweet. This went together very fast, wonderful for a weeknight meal. Thanks for sharing this, Jamilah! Made for Australia/New Zealand region in ZWT5.
