This sauce sounded really wonderful -- I like tangy, DH likes spicy, and DS likes sweet -- it has them all! I chose to make this for a pork stir-fry. I prepared the sauce in the morning, doubling the recipe so I could use some as a marinade. I marinated cubed pieces of pork in part of the sauce for 3 hours. Then I just stir-fried the pork with the rest of the sauce and put in a package of frozen stir-fry vegetables. Voila! Dinner on the table in about 15 minutes. I loved the fresh and fruity taste of this sauce and it went so well with pork. After the pork and veggies were done cooking, I put them on a platter and kept them warm. I then reduced the sauce a little, poured it over everything, and served it over rice. What a delicious meal -- my son said it tasted "like what we get in the Chinese restaurant." Thanks for sharing this!
