I just made this tonight and I was a little confused about the amount (3/4 cup) of oil, but I always follow a recipe the first time i make it so I used the specified amt. of oil and all other specified amt's of the recipe and the outcome was horrible. The taste of the sauce was a little too sweet (1/2 cup sugar) and had this oil floating on top of it. My family and I always take apart the recipe while we are eating it. They liked the sauce minus some sugar and oil. What I would like to know is Is there a reason for that amount of oil and sugar? We always give a recipe a second chance if we see something good in it, after that we decide whether it becomes a "keeper or a throw away" recipe.

Hi there! In this recipe, the Test Kitchen made sure to include plenty of the homemade sauce. The Test Kitchen says that you can reduce the amount of sugar and oil in this recipe by simply cutting the amount of sugar and oil in half. Enjoy!

The 3/4 cup of oil does seem like too much. Will have to try this tho! Yumm!

Is the 3/4 cup vegetable oil right? It looks and sounds like a lot of oil. Could you use less or substitute something else?

I saw this pasta dish on your TV spot. My husband & I love pasta & stirfry. Want to try on my family when they come to visit. Substitute suggestions for chicken allergy?

Howard, What would be good to serve with this if you use this recipe as a side dish?

Some szechuan stir-fried vegetables and crispy fried won tons.

Herb Crusted Lamb with Mint Sauce

Instead of cooking ham or prime rib for Easter, why not try something new this year? Our Herb-Crusted Lamb with Mint Sauce may look and sound fancy, but it's really easy to do. It's basically a rack of lamb that's coated with herbs and spices before it's roasted to perfection. Just before serving, it's finished off with a mint-wine reduction. The end result is an Easter-worthy main dish that'll impress everyone at the table.
