You can use a counter top mixer, hand held mixer, blender, or food processor to mix these ingredients together. You will end up with a fair amount of sauce, so be sure to use a large mixing bowl.
Once you’ve prepared the sauce you should cook up some of your favorite noodles. Store the leftover sauce in your fridge.
This recipe is a bit controversial. Everyone likes it, but no one can agree if this was the actual sauce served at Five Spice Cafe in the late nineties and the early oughts.
