simple bulgogi style sauce

  • 3/4 cup soy sauce
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 5 cloves garlic crushed
  • 1 inch piece of fresh ginger grated on a microplane
  • 1 Tbsp sesame oil
  • 3/4 cup apple juice or pear juice
  • 2 green onions finely chopped

This recipe adapted is from KFood by Da-Hae and Gareth West. It's a very funky Korean cookbook worth seeking out.
