Love this sauce! I am a vegetarian and I use this sauce when making a Korean BBQ sandwich for my family. They all love it including the 7 year old! It's a little spicy so I go light for the kids.
I strain the sauce before using it too.
This was a fantastic sauce. I halved the recipe for just the two of us, but kept the chili sauce at the original amount. I threw in some fresh parsley also. Was great on grilled salmon and fruit kabobs (and half was plenty for three filets, and six kabobs). This would be terrific on chicken or pork also. A keeper in this household!
Easy as pie. Used it as a marinade for yellowfin tuna, then grilled the fish. Left the cornstarch out for the marinade. Made a second batch as directed to serve with the fish. Came out excellent!
Outstanding and simple. I used mine with diced firm tofu. I substituted orange juice for the brown sugar.
Great, nice balance of flavors. I used half the siracha and it had just a nice hint of heat. I also used splenda brown and that worked fine. I marinated boneless chicken thighs in bottled teriyaki (overnight), then grilled them and hit them with the sauce the last couple of minutes and passed the sauce at the table, everyone loved it. One suggestion - you really do not need to make a slurry with the cornstarch/water and add it in. Just stir in the cornstarch with everything else before you put it on the heat and it comes out fine.
Pretty good. Put this on a thick pork steak cooked on the grill and was real good. Kinda sweet, a little spicy, a little Asian. Good stuff.
