This quick and easy, restaurant quality sauce takes just 5-minutes to prepare and you most likely already have most of those ingredients already in your pantry!
For the Sauce:
- ¼ cup Soy Sauce, Liquid Aminos, or Tamari [See Note 1]
- 1 cup water
- 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
- 1 large clove of garlic, finely minced
- 1–2 tablespoons honey
- 1/2 teaspoon ground fresh ginger or ginger paste
To Thicken the Sauce:
- 2 tablespoons cornstarch
- ¼ cup cold water
- For the sauce, combine the soy sauce, water, brown sugar, honey, garlic, and ginger in a medium saucepan and set over medium heat.
- In a small bowl, combine the cornstarch with the ¼ cup water and whisk until dissolved. Add the cornstarch mixture to the saucepan.
- Heat the sauce until it thickens to your desired thickness. If the sauce becomes too thick, add more water to thin it out. If the sauce is too thin, add a little more cornstarch slurry.
- For gluten free, look for a gluten free soy sauce, tamari, or liquid aminos.
