    It was great! I ended up doubling the cornstarch mixture so it could thicken much more and it was really good.

    Really enjoyed this recipe. Used 1tsp of dried minced garlic, but turned out fantastic. I kept stirring after I added cornstarch mix as sauce thickened. Pulled off the heat after my desired thickness. Adding this to our recipe book for future use!

    It was used with stir fry vegetables and one of our guests said it was the best she's ever had. A few chilli flakes were added to the recipe. I concur, it tasted great.

    Delicious!! I grilled my chicken and chopped it, quick sauté with carrots and broccoli. Served on a bed of rice and this sauce was a beautiful final touch!

    Good sauce, but too sweet for our taste. Might try less sugar and/or some sake next time.

    Good sauce but lacked the salty flavor, so I added more soy sauce, and it came out perfect.
