    Good, basic stir fry sauce. You can also add garlic or increase the ginger if you enjoy those flavors

    Good basic stir fry sauce. I doubled the recipe and I used 1 1/2 TBSP cornstarch instead of flour.

    Delicious! Quadrupled the recipe for a whole skillet of baked tofu sautéed with Asian vegetables. Will use less brown sugar next time. And I added sesame seeds which added a little extra texture and flavor.

    Pretty Awesome! I was at home starving and didn't really feel like making a trip to the store or eating out. I had some veggies and rice and happened to have all of the ingredients for the sauce. Worked out really well! The measurements for the ingredients works well over about 1 cup of rice(dry). If you're making more than that, I'd double it!

    Delicious! Great substitute for store bought. Mine came out a little thick but I think I did something wrong. Just added more vinegar & turned out great!!
