    OK dish, I decreased sauce wet ingredients and it was enough.  -  18 Apr 2018


    This is quite delicious even though I reduced the sugar by 75%. The sauce is quite unique.  -  24 Apr 2017


    The sauce was way off for me. I followed the instructions, but skimped a little on the sugar. Seemed much too oily and lacking flavor. There was also way too much of it -- I wish I had added it little by little instead of dumping it all on.  -  11 Jun 2018  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
