"I'm glad I found this recipe!! I was about to prepare a typical soy sauce based asian thigh recipe but was out of soy sauce. In a quick search I found this and had all the called for ingredients. The only addition my family made was some added Chinese hot sauce to their's to kick up the heat. Great dish."
"Loved it. Made 1/3 in small crock and it worked great. Not sure where the complaint with salt was because it was definitely not salty."
