Very good, but next time I will try only using half the brown sugar and adding more if I need it. Using a full cup over powered the coconut taste.

This sauce is really good. I actually served it with chicken breaded in pecan meal and it was delicious. Really sweet, so a little goes a long way. Will make again!!

This is a good start but it is way too sweet. I will use half the sugar next time and may even go to a white sugar. I think half the brown sugar would be fine but it also turns the sauce brown...

Per the others' reviews, I slowly added the brown sugar as needed. I used the coconut sauce to top the Biko (Pilipino rice-based dessert), also found on Allrecipes, and it was delicious! Thank y...

Excellent, used it in chicken, sweet corn, with a double pack of Udon noodles...
