Yum! This is really good and so simple. I wasn't able to get the sauce to thicken very well, but it was delicious anyway. We used this with potstickers and gorged ourselves with double dipping, lol. We also used the leftovers to pour over rice as a side dish for an Asian entree. Thanks Jen for another winner!
