1 cup soy sauce

3/4 cup dark brown sugar

2 tablespoons minced garlic

1 tablespoon chile-garlic sauce (such as Sriracha®) (optional)

1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger

1 teaspoon Asian (toasted) sesame oil

1 1/2 teaspoons ground black pepper

1 tablespoon cornstarch

1 tablespoon water


Stir soy sauce, brown sugar, garlic, rice wine vinegar, chile-garlic sauce, ginger, sesame oil, and black pepper together in a saucepan; bring to a boil.
