"This sauce goes great with ribs, chicken, or pulled pork. For more heat, add more cayenne pepper. For more thickness, add more cornstarch. For more tang, add more vinegar."

Tasty. I added molasses and a bit of paprika. Delish!

This recipe lives up to it's title. It is spicy, sweet and tangy. It is easy to make and very good. I halved the recipe as I only had a small amount of cooked chicken breast to use up and mix...

Very good! Followed the recipe as directed and stored the leftovers in a mason jar. It's a nice balance of sweet with a kick.

This recipe tastes exactly as it's named-spicy, sweet, and tangy. It was also super easy to make! Definitely using this recipe again!

Love it! Followed the recipe exactly and stored the extra - Good for basting and marinating. Sweet and spicy.
