  4. In a small bowl, combine water, vinegar, soy sauce, sugar, cornstarch and red pepper flakes (if using).

  6. Refrigerate leftovers within 2 hours.

Comment

Delicious & flavorful. Needs a touch more vinegar. Good, maybe less soy. Not an easy sell to my kids. Good. Better for warm weather. Tasty. Needs a bit more color. Better if sauce made separately then toss with sauteed broccoli.
