When adding soy sauce, start with less than half the amount and slowly add more to taste. Using vegetable broth makes this vegetarian.

"I cooked some stew meat ahead and added the meat, some sugar snap peas, carrots and pineapple, topped rice with that! yum! the sauce is great. I substituted evoo for the other oils, but everything else the same. thanks!"

Great sauce. I used honey instead of sugar. Marinated sliced chicken in sauce until ready to cook. Stir fried drain chicken and onion, then added sauce and vegetables (carrot, celery, Chinese greens and mushrooms)

I like to use the low sodium soy sauce, and love the fresh ginger flavor.

solid sauce. if anything, a little heavy on the soy sauce. next time I will try it with some oyster sauce to balance the flavor!

This was absolutely delicious! I substituted white wine vinegar because i didnt have any rice wine but it still came out great! My husband was scraping his plate and wanted more... I will definitely make this again!!!

Excellent recipe! I used this sauce with Chicken and some Frozen Asian vegetables. It was easy, fast, and the white pepper absolutely made the sauce. Delicious! Thanks for posting.
