MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 21, 2014

Too spicy, other than that, bland. Will not make this again.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 10, 2013

This is the recipe I seem to go to, over and over again. I use this base marinade for many very different dishes. Use rice, or LoMein noodles and add your own vegetables

MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 7, 2011

This was easy and tasted good, but not much "kick". The sweet overpowered the spicy.
