Korean BBQ Sauce

Hello! This is something you need to add to your sauce repertoire. Simple ingredients, and you probably have everything in your pantry except the gochujang chili paste. It is readily available in the international aisle of your grocery store or you can find it online. I used this on chicken thighs but is will be great on any chicken, beef, jackfruit, What’s that? I’ll get back to jackfruit later. Now let’s concentrate on making easy, low-ingredient BBQ sauce you can feel great about. Yes, there are two sugars in this recipe, but it’s not too much for the amount of sauce you will use. The heat of the paste needs this balance.

Korean BBQ Sauce

Makes approximately 1 cup

1/2 cup tamarin or soy sauce (liquid aminos works as well)

1/2 cup brown sugar

1 tablespoon water

2 tablespoons gochujang Korean chili paste

2 tablespoons honey

4 tablespoons rice wine vinegar

3 tablespoons minced garlic

3 tablespoons grated fresh ginger

1-2 chopped scallions

1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes


Combine all ingredients into a sauce pan. Mix ingredients together and leave on low heat until it thickens. Use right away on any protein. Garnish with fresh cilantro. Store in a container for use up to two weeks. Enjoy.
