Strange ingredients, but great taste. Did not put hot sauce in though.

I personally gave this a 3 star, but the 3 friends I had with me, all gave it a 4 or better. I was a little overwhelmed by the peanut butter so I increased some of the other elements. I increased most of the heat elements, the soya sauce, garlic powder, and I even added some broth. The jury is still out until I have used it in tonights dinner.

This was very good! I used the peanut butter, brown sugar, and used apple cider vinegar instead of white, along with the rest of ingredients . Also added a little powdered ginger, will make again!!

I personally think molasses works better than honey or brown sugar in this recipe. Just my suggestion.

Was delicious. I cut down on the peanut butter, used honey, siracha, add some crushed pepper, 1/2tsp ginger, some more black pepper, and rice wine vingear

I used peanut butter in this because I couldn't find black bean paste. I really kept focusing on the peanut butter taste. I think the black bean paste must be the better choice. I'll try it again if I can find that ingredient (there is another grocery store that has a better Asian section that I'll try)

Wow, as everyone else says, this was so delicious I will never buy bottled again! It's also a very forgiving recipe - I used Sriracha hot sauce because I didn't have the Chinese hot sauce. It was so good I just wanted to drink it from a cup!
