Reviews for Saucy Sprouts and Oranges
"This was an OK side. I think it's more of a taste preference than a bad recipe. I like the fresh oranges and the glaze, I just didn't care for the Chinese five spice powder flavor. So I probably wouldn't make it again. If I did I would definitely substitute that one ingredient... for something."
