1/4 cup honey 

1 tablespoon freshly grated ginger 

1 teaspoon sesame oil 

4 cloves garlic, grated on a rasp 

Freshly ground black pepper

Cook’s Note

Use as a quick marinade with beef, chicken or pork for up to 2 hours at room temperature. For extra flavor, reserve 1/4 cup before using as a marinade to baste with while grilling. Reduce this marinade over medium heat and toss with veggies or edamame, or use as a dipping sauce for potstickers and gyoza.
