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.

I store my leftover homemade sauces in squeeze bottles. If refrigerated, I set them out an hour before using so they come to room temperature. You don’t want to put cold sauce on hot wings!
