"My husband loves this. Based on the previous reviews I did add some sliced carrots and a tsp of ginger to the recipe. My husband also likes a bit of heat so I added a pinch of red pepper flakes to this as well. He gobbled it up."

"I made this last night, and it wasn't good at all. Since it received 5 stars I thought it would be wonderful, but the sauce was so flavor at all. Once I added things to it (ginger, salt, and maybe a tsp of molasses), it was better...but I won't be making this again."
