Rice Vinegar Basting Sauce

Rice Vinegar Basting Sauce

Bonnie Meyer 0

"This basting sauce is excellent brushed on grilled chicken or pork. This recipe makes 1 cup, but it's nice to double the recipe so you have extra to pass around for added flavor. This recipe is high in sugar, so just brush on the last few minutes of cooking so that the meat won't burn"

Love, exactly as written! One quick note: I notice a lot of ppl subbing fresh ginger for jarred or powdered in recipes - Buy a "hand" of ginger, wrap it in plastic wrap then put in a freezer bag, and use as needed. It's super easy to grate this way - just peel a small amount, grate away, then back in the freezer. Hope that helps someone.


This was very good, but very similar to 'Japanese chicken wings' from this site. Sorry, but I prefer the Japanese chicken wings recipe to this.


Finger licking deliciousness! This sauce was a HIT at our BBQ.. I doubled it and used half to baste and half to dip. SOOO GOOD! I addedd sesame oil, mirin,1 cap full of liquid smoke, and a tiny bit of siracha chili sauce... My hub "told" me to have this sauce in the fridge at all times.. People couldn't belive I made it from scratch! this is a great recipe!
