Chinese Barbecue Sauce (Char Siu)

This sauce is great for dipping and also is used in my Chinese Barbecue Pork (Char Siu) recipe.

Chinese BBQ Sauce Ingredients:
3/4 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup hoisin sauce
1 teaspoon oyster sauce
3/4 cup rice cooking wine
4 teaspoons sesame oil
3/4 cup sugar
5 tablespoons honey
1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
1/2 of a onion, cut into chunks (save the other half for later)
5 garlic cloves, crushed
1 1inch piece of ginger, peeled and cut into chunks
1 1/2 teaspoon cornstarch
3 tablespoons cold water

Sauce Directions:

1. Mix water and cornstarch together until smooth, set aside.

2. To a medium-sized pot add; all sauce ingredients, adding the cornstarch water mixture in last. 

3. Whisk and heat to low-medium, simmer for 10-15 minutes stirring occasionally with a wooden spoon (watch it and do not let it burn on the bottom). Sauce should have thickened a good amount, remove from heat and pour through a strainer, set the sauce aside to cool.
