This was a very tasty and different dish. I have to admit that I was skeptical when I first mixed all of the sauce ingredients together. Before it simmered, the flavor combination was strange at best to me. Once it boils and all comes together though, it really is delicious. Definitely a transformation that I'm glad I was patient with! I will make this again.
