This is definitely a mixed review on this one. As I was browning the ground meat (I used turkey) I skimmed the recipe and was doubtful that soy sauce, water and red pepper would create something very flavorful so I did alter the recipe a bit. I used red chile paste instead of flakes, using the soy sauce as a base, mixed in 2 tbs brown sugar, 2 tbs rice wine vinegar and 1 tbs ketchup. Finished off as regular, but it was still a bit bland, which would be great for kids, but not so much us. I do love the base of this recipe, however and will use this as a start for many other variations. I can see adding other veggies and changing up the spices- yum! Thanks for posting MobileBay!
