Korean BBQ Wings

I know I’ve got a great wing sauce when I consider getting a spoon and just eating it right out of the pan. These Korean BBQ wings were fantastic, thanks to a delicious sauce that packs just the right amount of heat. And it’s the perfect, spot-on consistency to boot. There were darned good wings.

I made the sauce exactly as you see below. You’ll notice that it does call for a good amount of sesame oil. If you find sesame oil a bit strong you might want to start with half the amount listed and taste to see if you want more. I went full-bore and loved it.

The sauce for these Korean BBQ wings isn’t just great on wings, either. I strongly recommend you at least double the recipe. You’ll want some sauce on hand to brush (or dip) grilled chicken. It’s also fantastic on smoked or grilled ribs.

Guy Fieri’s Korean BBQ Wings

I love Asian-inspired chicken wings. Sometimes they’re a little sweet. Sometimes they’re a little spicy. That’s why I decided to pick up a bottle of Guy Fieri’s Korean BBQ wing sauce. This sauce has a teriyaki-like flavor, with plenty of soy sauce. And a little sweet, and a little heat, with hints of ginger and onion. It’s not overly thick and not overly thin, perfect on wings hot off the grill or out of the deep-fryer.

Guy Fieri's Korean BBQ Wings

I’ve seen around the internet that a few folks have been using Guy Fieri’s Korean BBQ wing sauce as a sauce for smoked or grilled ribs. I think that’s a great idea as this sauce would definitely stand up to being slathered on ribs. I definitely wouldn’t pigeon-hole it as ‘just’ a wing sauce. Heck, slather it on some grilled fish or toss some roasted vegetables in it. It’s that versatile and that good.
