This sauce y’alll!!!! Seriously, that’s all I have to say.

Ok, maybe I have a few more things to say 😉

I was recently on a flight with no WiFi (I know, the blasphemy!) so I busted out my handy little notepad and actually WROTE new recipe ideas out with pen and paper… it was like a flashback to 1999!

One thing I wrote was – make more recipes with that Korean BBQ sauce – with a million stars next to it… like I meant serious business!

That Korean BBQ sauce, of which I was referring to, was the sauce I created to go on top of the Slow Cooked Korean BBQ Meatballs I made for Superbowl this year.

I went on and on about the sauce in that post, and I will continue to go on and on about the sauce in every recipe I make with it because it’s seeeeeeeeriously that good!

But this recipe y’all, it’s so simple, yet one of the top 5 best things I’ve ever made! And I don’t say that lightly. I’ve made hundreds of recipes over the last four years, so to make the top 5 list means serious business.

I shared this deliciousness with my roommate and he asked if I had anymore of the sauce laying around because he’d like to drink it, lol, but seriously, that’s how awesome it is.
