Honey Garlic Sauce

Greg had smoked a brisket and wanted a sweeter sauce for it since he rubbed it in peppercorns prior to smoking. I found this recipe on and it is a definite keeper!! No more commercially purchased sauces for us - this was easy and uses ingredients that you generally have on hand.

(makes 2 cups)
1 tbsp minced garlic
1 pinch red pepper flakes (I ended up adding more)
2 tbsp oil
1 cup chicken broth
1/2 cup honey
3 tbsp tamari or soy sauce
2 tbsp white wine or white balsamic vinegar
1 tbsp brown sugar
2 tbsp cornstarch
  • Whisk together broth and cornstarch until smooth. Add honey, soy sauce, vinegar and brown sugar. Whisk vigorously until combined.

  • Heat oil in a saucepan over medium-low heat. Add garlic and chili flakes and saute until the garlic is golden brown (approx. 2 mins). Whisk in cornstarch mixture and simmer until thickened (approx. 3 to 4 minutes).

  • ENJOY!
