Korean Barbecue Sauce

Source: Diet for a Small Planet
Date tried: July 12, 2016
Yield: about 1 cup
Time needed: about 15 minutes, but make several hours ahead to allow for marinating.

This was the first recipe I tried in this cookbook and it is amazingly good. I used it for my introduction to tofu and it was a winner. It will keep well for weeks in the refrigerator. Author’s recommendation: “For a treat use it to marinate fresh mushrooms for a special appetizer.”
