"I followed this recipe exactly, and I've got to say it was the best I've tried so far, and I have tried many claiming to be be the best. I have to agree with danboy357, if you aren't following it exactly then you are kinda defeating the purpose of the recipe as written. I wouldn't change a thing, this is 'the one' when it comes to making your own sauce!" - lil nutbrown hare
"Very tasty, I did half the seasonings because we only had about a 2 -2.5 lb elk roast for my husband and I. Very tender and juicy, I always love the veggie flavors! I loved how the drippings were already made into a gravy. Great for Sunday dinners!" - simplydelicious
"A spicy, homemade teriyaki of soy sauce, cider vinegar, ginger and garlic enlivens chicken..." - marian
"I've made this twice now with only the slightest tweaks (added a couple teaspoons of 'Italian Seasoning' mix from our co-op). It's absolutely perfection. Rich, just spicy enough to add interest, and no acid overload. I'm not a fan of tomato-based sauces, but I love this. So did my husband." - p g.8256
