  • 2 tbsp cornstarch plus 2 tbsp water
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup rice vinegar
  • 2 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder


  • Create a slurry by combining the 2 tablespoons cornstarch and 2 tablespoons water in a small bowl and whisking until cornstarch is fully dissolved. Set aside.
  • Combine 1/2 cup water, soy sauce, rice vinegar, sesame oil, brown sugar, honey, ground ginger and garlic powder in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Bring to a boil.
  • Add the slurry to the saucepan and return to a boil, whisking often. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for 5 minutes or until desired thickness has been reached.
    Remove from heat and let cool.


  • Replace rice vinegar with apple cider vinegar, if desired.
  • Replace ground ginger with fresh grated ginger (equal amounts) for a stronger ginger flavor.
  • Make this sauce gluten free by using GF soy sauce!
  • Use low sodium soy sauce for a less salty end result.
  • If the sauce is too sweet, add ginger and garlic until sweetness dissipates.
  • Once the cornstarch slurry is added, the sauce will get thick quickly so keep a close eye and remove from the heat once the desired consistency is reached.
