This didn't work for me at all. I made the sauce twice. The first time I overcooked it (it still wasn't thick or syrupy when I stopped) and it cooled solid! The second time, I decided to cook it for about 40~ minutes and ended up having to thicken it with cornstarch. I also found the balance of flavors to be off and entirely too strong. Hopefully someone else can improve upon it! Thanks for posting.
