Ramona.Werst's picture
  Cooking oil 3 Tablespoon
  Garlic 3 Clove (15 gm), minced
  Shallot 1 , minced
  Dried red pepper flakes 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Soy sauce 1 Cup (16 tbs) (Regular, I Use Kikkoman)
  Dark soy sauce 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Rice wine 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Sugar 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Water 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Sesame oil 1⁄2 Teaspoon

Heat up cooking oil.
Add minced shallot, fresh minced garlic, and red pepper flakes to the cooking oil. Fry it for about 30 seconds to 1 minute until the garlic and shallot become golden but not burnt. Once it is all fried, remove the shallot and minced garlic and keep the oil in the pan.
Add the dark soy sauce and regular soy sauce to the oil. Add sesame seed oil, rice wine, water and sugar and chili peppers; bring the mixture to a boil. Cook it for about 10 minutes at the simmer until the mixture thickens.
You can keep the Sweet Soy Sauce in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
You will be needing so many little airtight containers, and I have found a way to keep all the lids and containers organized!
