    I altered the recipe quite a bit, but it was still good. I wanted a thicker sauce to serve over some honey-lemon-soy sauce marinated venison steaks (I read that the honey and lemon juice would help tenderize it), so I whisked in some cornstarch to thicken it, then cooked it until it was the right consistency. Also, had to use ground ginger. Served it over fried rice with veggies. Overall, not a bad meal!

    Very tasty, easy to put together, and something any chef attempting Asian food should know. We would have added a little more sweetness, possibly some honey, but that's an easy adjustment and a matter of personal taste. Made for PAC.

    Simple to do in like 2 minutes. I used it for a dipping sauce for fried dumplings. It has a slightly sweet flavor. Next time I will add more fresh ginger. Thanks for posting.


<p><img src= alt=width=300 height=150 />I live in Boise, Idaho (home of the famous Idaho potatoes and Boise State University whose football team plays on the blue smurf turf). My husband and I are retired and travel quite a lot.&nbsp;&nbsp; We have a place in Boise, Idaho and now a part-time home in Carlsbad, California.&nbsp; It's nice to be in California where they have so much more fresh food...vegetables and fish!&nbsp;&nbsp;They have so many farmer markets that I really have to watch myself, but cooking is so much fun and they have such a variety of things to use.</p> <p>I have two daughters and one has three angels (the twins who are now 4) and my man who is 2 and just as big as the twins.&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;I do miss them when we are gone...they grow so fast.<br /><br />I love to collect and read cookbooks -- way to much from my husbands point of view. I love to watch Rachael Ray, Paula Deen, Barefoot Contessa and Everyday Italian. I have used this site for several months and have loved the recipes and info that comes with them...had to join! <a href= target=_blank><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /><br /><br /><br />The only peeve that I really have is going on this site and reading reviews on recipes where the person has totally changed the recipe and didn't like the results so therefore giving low ratings.&nbsp;<br /><br /><img src= alt=/ /><img src= alt=/ /> <br /><br /><img src= alt=/ /><img src= alt=/ /> <object width=400 height=300 data= type=application/x-shockwave-flash> <param name=data value= /> <param name=src value= /> <param name=wmode value=transparent /> </object> img</a><a href= target=_blank><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /></a><a href= target=_blank><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /></a><img src= alt=/ /><img src= alt=/ /><a href= target=_blank><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /><img src= alt=/ /><img src= alt=/ /><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /><img src= alt=/ /><img src= alt=/ /><img src= alt=/ /> <br /><img src= alt=/ /><img src= alt=/ /><img src= alt=/ /><img src= border=0 alt=/ /><img border=0 alt=Photobucket /><img src= border=0 alt=New /></a></p>
