The quickest way to Korea w/ poll (Saute Sauce & Marinade)

This recipe is for those times when an airplane ticket isn’t in the budget…

… When a two week’s vacation won’t fit into the schedule.

… When the daydream only gets you halfway to the dream.

Splash a little of this sauce in your frying pan – let it dance and sizzle and pop. Serve with bibimbap, if you dare!

Welcome to Korea.

Makes 3/4 cup


1/2 cup sesame oil
soy sauce, to taste
3 cloves garlic, chopped
1 inch ginger, grated
1 green onion, chopped
2 Tbsp sugar
1/2 tsp black pepper
salt, to taste


Are you ready?

Don’t blink or you’ll miss it.

Chop the ingredients, give them all a whisk and use as needed.


Enjoy – live the dream!
