Although this recipe does not taste exactly like what you buy in the store, it is a tasty Asian-style sauce that's easy to whip up when you don't or can't have the real thing. It is very sweet. Next time I make it I might try cutting down on the sugar a little.

SOY FREE and LOW IODINE DIET DIRECTIONS:
Use a soy sauce substitute instead of soy sauce. Make sure to use real brown sugar, not white sugar with molasses added to it.
