Nutrition & Calorie Comments  

Dude. I freakin' forgot the vinegar! Like a spaz! But, it came out so incredibly delicious. I made brown rice, with some fried eggs and then in a separate pan I sauteed an array of veggies and put the sauce on them and then poured my toppings over my rice. I think next time I'll also cut the sugar.
This was better than the Chinese restaurant. I used the zest of 2 oranges and juice of one and only 3/4 cup of brown sugar. I wanted to really taste the orange. I like the use of cornstarch to thicken sauce. I have made this before from another recipe that did not call for the thickener.
I used half the amount of sugar but kept everything else the same. It lowered the calories and turned out great. It was slightly runny, but that made it easier to use less. It worked out to 40 calories for 12 servings.
It's definitely tasty, but the calorie count is off the charts - over 1,000 calories just for the sauce... that's not bad if you can feed 12, but the recipe feeds more like four.
Are the calories correct for 12 servings?
Haven't made it yet, but it sounds delicious! I'm going to substitute honey or agave nectar for the sugar though.
Great with chicken or pork leftovers, just add your favorite veggies and rice and you have a homemade meal without the extra calories of takeout!
