    We made this using the sugar-free apricot preserves. We could not obtain fresh snow peas so substituted red pepper, white and brown onion, and carrots. The flavor of the sauce was delicious. We like heat so will likely try to add a little fresh jalapeno or red chili pepper flakes next time. This was truly a good sauce for stir fry and we will definitely be making again.

    I was craving Chinese and I convinced myself to try this recipe. This relieved my craving because it was restaurant quality...very easy...loved that it was one portion and just all out delicious!
