    I made my own sauce to lower the sodium, but otherwise it was excellent! - 6/7/09

    Oh, do share your sauce! I'd make a homemade mandarin/orange sauce if I knew how... Maybe you could give some ideas? :)

    Hope you like it! I know it's a little high in sodium, but the Panda Express sauce is to blame ;)
    We get the sauce from Safeway groceries or our Walmart Supercenter. Can't remember which, but thought that might help :)
    Let me know what you think!
