how to make honey garlic sauce

Step 1:
In a medium sauce pan combine all of the ingredients and bring to a gentle boil.

Reduce the heat and let simmer for 5 minutes. Stir often to prevent sticking to the pot.

If you'd like it thicker, combine 1 tablespoon cornstarch with 1/4 cup cold water and stir into the honey garlic sauce.

Give it a couple minutes to thicken. Repeat if it's still not thick enough for you.

Cover and set aside or refrigerate until you're ready to use it.
