Hi fudge4u, We just updated that to reflect the soy sauce in the instructions. Sorry for any confusion!

What are you supposed to do with the soy sauce?

This sounds like a quick and easy dish that my family would love. I do have one question--How much water do you mix with the corn starch? This apprears to be omitted from the recipe. Thank you.
