RECIPE BACKSTORY
This recipe came from an old Quick Cooking magazine. I liked the flavor, but the sauce was too thin, so I added a little flour to make a roux. It worked; producing a flavorful glaze that goes great over rice or noodles. A very quick dish with few ingredients and little work...just my style!
