Asian Buffalo Sauce is rated out of 5 by 4.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Jenny1 from Pretty Good! I'm not sure why the other reviewers were disappointed. Me and my husband tried this recipe and really enjoyed it! We doubled the sauce, but didn't have any oranges on hand, so we used 3 clementines and half a clementine peel instead. We coated chicken tenders in it and ate it over rice. The only reason why I can see that people might not have been satisfied is that it might be mislabeled. It wasn't really buffalo sauce, mainly spicy orange Asian sauce. Still, it was really good and I would make it again. :)

Rated 1 out of 5 by stlhunk from No Dice Made this recipe last night. Some of the ingredients are a bit vague (1.5 by 5. cube of ginger, 2 inch strip of orange peel) so maybe I overdid something. Either way, it didn't taste like it was anywhere near tasting good. Pretty disappointed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Mikee from Did not taste good. I wanted a slightly spicy sauce to put on chicken. I blended the sauce from the recipe. It felt overpowering in some flavor and muddy tasting at the same time. Taste before putting on your chicken. Would not recommend.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Jtyne from Not bad! The reviewers are right that this is a mediocre recipe, but I tweeted it a little by adding extra soy sauce and rice vinegar and it turned out to be really good!
