  • 1 cup water
  • ¼ cup soy sauce
  • 5 tsp packed brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp honey or more to taste
  • ½ tsp ground ginger
  • ¼ tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tbsp corn starch


  • Get a saucepan and place it on top of a stove as you set the temperature to medium heat, then mix all the ingredients mentioned above, except for the cornstarch and cold water.
  • Pour the cornstarch and 1/4 cup cold water in a separate bowl and whisk them together, then add this mixture to the other ingredients that you’ve placed in the saucepan earlier.
  • Bring to boil and then simmer and adjust temperature and cook time to achieve desired consistency.
  • Remember to add water if the sauce becomes too thick in order to soften it.
  • Once you’re satisfied with the thickness consistency, then turn off the stove and transfer the sauce to a glass bottle and refrigerate.
