    This was so easy to make and the flavours were outstanding.  -  09 Dec 2015


    Nice recipe. Tangy flavour and the peanutty smell while it was cooking was great. Nice texture. Chinesey taste. Can taste the garlic, honey and ginger but none are overpowering. The peanut taste doesn't shine through quite as much as I'd like (but certainly isn't absent) so probably would add another spoonful next time. Sauce was a bit thin at the end so added a bit of cornflour paste to thicken it up. Would also recommed removing the fat before shredding at the end - it's worth leaving it in during cooking though for the taste. The recipe doesn't give the type of soy sauce to use but I used dark in the stated quantity and it was fine.  -  05 Dec 2015
