SO HOW'D IT GO?

Wow, I forgot to review this. I've made this several times, with great results every time. I like the fact that there's a considerable amount of orange juice in it (unlike many other orange sauce recipes), but it's still got that unhealthy-orange-sauce flavor  ;) I've used it with fake chicken (lightlife strips to whitewave chicken-style seitan), but i might try it with just tofu and broccoli.

So so soooo good.
