  • This was a fantastic sauce! I added a few things of my own to clear out my fridge- some bell pepper, garlic chives, green onions, orange tomato, and shredded carrot. The base recipe was a hearty but sweet sauce, and it lends well to additions. I did leave out the beef as I'm a vegetarian. - 6/6/10
