"Quick and easy to make. Feel free to make substitutions. You can substitute ketchup for chili sauce and cider vinegar for wine vinegar; still tastes great. I usually double the recipe."

Not overly sweet like so many - more like the homemade kind at our local asian restaurant. Chili sauce makes it great!

We had an improv Chinese food night and needed a quick sauce. This was easy and unexpectedly flavorful! I'll be using it again - thank you!
