Loved how easy it was to make this!! I agree the balsamic vinegar was a little weird but it actually tasted good! I will also try it with soy sauce next time just to see the difference. I do believe the peanut oil made a difference too, glad I went to get that for this recipe! Now I can make it a million times!
