My new favorite marinade/sauce!

This was inspired by a restaurant that has since closed, Aloha Island Grill. They served sliced steak with a sauce that I loved and needed to make for myself. Here’s as close as I’ve gotten.

I use it with thinly-sliced tri-tip steak. Half the recipe gets mixed into the meat and I let it marinade for a few hours. The other half is saved to dip or pour on the steak and rice when it’s time to eat 😛

Start by boiling 1 cup of water.

To it, add:

150 grams white sugar

50 grams minced fresh garlic

1/2 cup soy sauce

1 Tablespoon granulated garlic

1 Tablespoon Sri racha, optional for heat

1 Tablespoon cornstarch, made into a slurry and added.

Make sure to boil the mixture for at least a minute after you add the cornstarch so it can thicken the sauce. Also, your sugar should be dissolved.

Cool before using as a marinade on meat.
