  1. It doesn't say where the sesame oil goes and it also has the 1/2 tsp. sugar in the marinade and the sauce. I just did my own thing and it came out okay but would like to know how the recipe should really read.

    1. Thanks for pointing that out, Linda! I made a few edits that should make it easier to follow along.
