  1. Heat a saucepan over medium heat. Add soy sauce, water, and vinegar; cook until heated through, 1 to 2 minutes. Stir in brown sugar, mustard, garlic powder, and ginger; cook until dissolved, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat; let stand until slightly thickened, 3 to 5 minutes.


  • Cook's Note:
