    My bf just made this for our dinner tonight (leaving out the chicken broth as I'm allergic, and rosemary because we don't like it). It was amazing. He used a peppered tenderloin, which gave it some spice, and we ate over broccoli. He'd probably look for a plain tenderloin next time, but there was not any at our store today. VERY, VERY TASTY! We also did not use arrowroot, although it probably would have thickened the sauce nicely. We were fine with the more liquid sauce. In place of the chicken broth he just used more OJ. Great low-fat, all-natural/organic dinner.

    Except for using fresh rosemary and thickening with corn starch I followed the recipe. I did, however, double the sauce and glad I did so. This was lovely and sure to be repeated. Made for RS#42

    Step #3 says to reduce to 1 cup. It started with less then 1 cup so I just reduced to 1/2 of what I started with. I used pork loin and chicken breast that I sliced and coated with a mixture of soy sauce, sesame oil and cornstarch. placed in the oven for 10-15 minutes. Then added to the sauce. This would be nice if it was thickened so the sauce coated the pork. Thanks for this low fat dish.

    this was alright, the flavor was good just not our thing really


I came to this site in March of 2004. It was then called Recipezaar. This site was the first on-line site that I ever joined. I first popped in 2003 while searching for a Peach Cobbler Recipe. In March of 2004, DH was having shoulder surgery and I was looking for a Split Pea Soup. Once again I found myself on Zaar as it came to be called. Over the years I hung out and learned from some of the best home cooks in the country, I posted over 700 recipes on the site, reviewed over 3500 recipes and posted over 3000 food photos. Over the next 10 years the site made many changes and in 2010 it was sold to to Food Network and became Food.com. Until last year we played games, talked and shared with one another. As a result of the community and the relationships I built I got to meet some wonderful people from all over the country. I also have a great number of friends that I have never meet face to face. Some of us still hang out at various places across the net. Zaar was more than a cooking community. It was an internet community of friendship. Life is an adventure ever changing.
