"This got rave reviews at my table as well. Super fast, easy, and economical. This would be great alongside some stir-fried vegetables as well!"

"I love trying new recipes. My finicky husband usually gives them mediocre ratings. But this one got two thumbs up and is a keeper. We loved it served over rice. Will make extra sauce next time, for drizzling, as recommended by a previous poster."

"Delicious. Doubled the sauce so we could have extra to drizzle on rice."

"Love love love this recipe!! I tweaked a few things -- like using cornstarch to thicken instead of simmering (it only made the sauce saltier and I use low-sodium soy sauce!) and using more red pepper (I like the spicy!). Making it for extended family tonight and I really think it will go over well! :)"
