There is only one way to describle homemade honey garlic sauce and that is, magic. Sticky, garlicky, magic.
Side note; I went into my handy thesaurus app, thinking I needed another word for magic, and it came up with this “of impossible feats by tricks abracadabra”. I enjoy this way of describing this honey garlic sauce also. 🙃
Ok back to the sauce.
7 ingredients is all it takes and once you have made it once, you will be left wondering where it has been all of your life!
There is something so good about a homemade sauce. It is a no BS situation, and I love that.
- You know all of the ingredients. Seriously, you wont believe how much crap is packed into the store bought stuff.
- It is SO EASY and SIMPLE. It literally only takes 10 minutes to whip up, and you will probably have leftovers.
- Leftovers. Leftovers!!! This sauce will last two weeks in the fridge! Just keep it in an air tight container and give it a quick stir before you use it.
- This is an all purpose sauce that can be added to almost anything. Try using this honey garlic sauce in stirfrys and salads or toss it with some freshly baked chicken wings!
Let’s make some sauce!
I hope you caught that one part, the part where I told you it only takes TEN MINUTES. Sometimes it takes me 10 minutes to find my husband to open the jar of the store bought stuff.
This honey garlic sauce also requires very minimal effort. Kind of a set it and forget it situation. But it only cooks for five minutes, so don’t wander too far.
All the ingredients get whisked together in a bowl, or saucepan. Then place it over medium heat on the stove, bring it to a boil, once it is boiling set your timer for five minutes.
Then, right at the end, once you have a thick sticky honey garlic sauce toss in a few extra cloves of minced garlic. It adds and extra punch of flavour and makes this honey garlic sauce really pop!
Yup that is it. Now you have a lovely jar of honey garlic sauce, ready to go on any dish your heart desires!
