Thanks for posting this, Gailanng! it was quite yummy! made as an asian bbq condiment to our asian spiced pork ribs! followed the recipe pretty much down to the bone. didnt have any unseasoned rice vinegar so we used seasoned. also didnt have fresh ginger so we sprinkled in some powdered ginger to suit our needs. added some of the juice from the pork ribs mixed with some cornstarch to stretch the sauce. we all enjoyed it! the 8 year old ate all the pork with the sauce but wouldn't touch the rice we made, unusual for her! some friends stopped by before we ate and tasted just the asian bbq sauce and said it was wonderful as well! thanks!!
