Disappointing that this recipe implies using a packet sauce instead of offering instructions to make your own. Never as good as home-made. I chose Watties and it was pretty bad.

Hi Oliver - thanks for your feedback. You can use a packet sauce or if you would like to make your own you can combine 1 teaspoon of sesame oil, 2 cloves of garlic, 1 teaspoon of ginger, 1/4 cup hoisin sauce, 1/4 cup reduced salt soy sauce and 2 teaspoons of corn flour mixed with 1/2 cup of beef stock which is delicious!
