This is the best I've made. It tastes like the ones I have tried at Chinese restaurants.

It really does taste like that at the Chinese restaurants. Very good, spicy! I thickened it a little with cornstarch as I was using it as a dipping sauce for fondue.

All I can say is make it exactly the way it is and you can't go wrong. I served it with tokatsu and everyone raved about it and was very surprised at the flavor that this sauce brought to the table. Will def make on many occasions.

My husband & I went bonkers over this sauce when we used it with the 'Chicken Katsu' & white rice I make off this site. I only used 1 t. red pepper flakes & it was spicy enough for us. Excellent!!
