One of the Best Stir-Fry Sauces I tried this sauce when it first came out. I'm always looking for some great-flavorful stir-fries and this fit the bill. I've tried it with tofu and steak and they are both wonderful. This will be on my menu at least once a month. Pros: Very Flavorful Cons: Some People Might Think It is Too Spicy
