Some non-Momofuku psn-fried chicken topped with the "sauce"

There is an incredible 'sauce' in the Momofuku cookbook that first is used to top their fried chicken (which is also incredbile). Since I am improvising some pan-fried chicken tonight I thought I'd share the recipe. The rest of the recipes in the book are all really good and creative. They are definitely involved, but the effort usually results in a delicious dish as well as new techniques you can 

Ingredients:

  • 2 tbsp chopped garlic
  • 2 tbsp chopped ginger
  • 1 fresh thai or serrano chile
  • 1/4 cup rice wine vinegar
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp neutral oil (I use canola)
  • 1/4 tsp sesame oil
  • 1 1/2 tbsp sugar
  • black pepper

Method:

Mix it all together
