  1. This sauce sounded really wonderful -- I like tangy, DH likes spicy, and DS likes sweet -- it has them all! I chose to make this for a pork stir-fry. I prepared the sauce in the morning, doubling the recipe so I could use some as a marinade. I marinated cubed pieces of pork in part of the sauce for 3 hours. Then I just stir-fried the pork with the rest of the sauce and put in a package of frozen stir-fry vegetables. Voila! Dinner on the table in about 15 minutes. I loved the fresh and fruity taste of this sauce and it went so well with pork. After the pork and veggies were done cooking, I put them on a platter and kept them warm. I then reduced the sauce a little, poured it over everything, and served it over rice. What a delicious meal -- my son said it tasted "like what we get in the Chinese restaurant." Thanks for sharing this!
  2. Oh my! What a recipe! After an evening of complaining from grown children about my making stir fry for dinner and getting half way through and realizing that certain folks had failed to put some normal stir fry sauce ingredients on the grocery list after we ran out of them, I got desperate, went searching, found this. Sadly, still didn't have the peaches, but I did have a big can of mandarin oranges. Followed the same instructions using the oranges and it turned out fabulous with all the complainers raving and asking for this recipe again!
