    I had to modify the hoisin & dry sherry because I didn’t have them, but it tasted pretty good. Look forward to trying with proper ingredients.

    Nice, but too heavy on the soy and not enough garlic.

    Excellent! Yummy. I didn’t have sherry so I just added oil to the cornstarch. I don’t like ginger so I left that out. I subbed Korean bbq sauce for hoisin, added green beans and put it over cauliflower rice, excellent!

    This stuff is AWESOME! Wife and kids loved it, too. I didn’t have starch and read the recipe wrong - ended up using 2 tablespoons of flour instead of 2 teaspoons of starch. I used ground ginger (instead of fresh grated) and 2 teaspoons of minced garlic (which got left in) instead of a clove of garlic that gets removed. We really liked it, it wasn’t hard to make, and it didn’t take long. This will be a staple in our menu - low carb or not.
