This sauce was absolutely delicious... I followed the recipe except for the garlic I just used some Garlic-Jalapeno paste, and I put more crushed red pepper... I love spicy... and a friend also ...

A wonderful sweetness & tiny bit of spice is the perfect compliment for lumpias, thanks for the recipe!

Sorry, but we didn't really like this. It didn't taste like most lumpia sauce I have had. It was really sweet. We love garlic too, but it seemed like 2 tbsp. was a little to much.

Very good. Adjust garlic and red pepper flakes to taste. I added almost twice as much red pepper flakes and only made half the recipe. A keeper.

Tasty and very easy sauce. I upped the red pepper flakes to 1/2 teaspoon & it really gave it a great heat. Withouth the spicy notes it would be way too syrupy sweet.

Everyone enjoyed it, a bit sweet but it went really well with the lumpia.

Really good sauce - nice mix of sweet and hot. It probably could stand to be a little hotter...

This was a great recipe, but a little bit too sweet for us. I made it as written to start and then added a second cup of water; it's still too sugary though it worked great as a sauce. I'd recom...

Really a great sauce for lumpia. I halfed the sugar and it was just right, for us. Thanks
