Step 1: Combine ingredients

In a small bowl, dissolve corn starch in 1/4 cup water and set aside. In a small pot, bring vinegar, sugar, soy sauce, sherry, Minced Garlic, and choice of chile powder to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring frequently.

Step 2: Simmer

Reduce heat to low and simmer for 7 to 8 min. until reduced by one-third. Stir in corn starch slurry, return to a boil, and then reduce to a simmer for 2 to 3 min. until sauce reaches a sticky, glazy consistency.
