- Q: Can I make this sauce ahead of time?

If you want to add a bit more sweetness to the sauce, you can increase the amount of brown sugar. Alternatively, if you want to make the sauce spicier, you can add more chili flakes or even some sriracha sauce. This sauce can also be made in larger batches and stored in the fridge for up to a week.
To make the sauce more visually appealing, you can add some sesame seeds or thinly sliced red peppers to the mixture. This will also add a bit of crunch to the sauce.
If you want to make the sauce more authentic, you can substitute the soy sauce with tamari sauce or even coconut aminos. However, keep in mind that this will change the flavor profile of the sauce.
