korean bbq sandwich


To make korean bbq sauce:
In a small saucepan over medium high heat add all the sauce ingredients except for the arrowroot and water.

Whisk everything together and bring to a boil. In a separate small bowl, stir together the arrowroot and water until it dissolves.

Gradually pour the arrowroot mixture into the boiling sauce, while continuously whisking for 1 minute.

Reduce heat to medium-low and allow to simmer for 3-5 minutes, until the sauce has become thickened.

Remove from heat and cool before pouring into a jar.

To make sandwich:
Prep all the sandwich ingredients.

In a medium size pan heat sesame oil in a pan on medium heat. Add the crumbles and a few tbsp of Korean bbq sauce and cook for 5-7minutes until crispy. While still warm, press into patties. (you can form patties first and then cook, but this way gets the crumble bits get thoroughly coated).

Put patties on buns, add cabbage, radish, avocado and a drizzle with more of the bbq sauce. Enjoy!

*Place any leftover sauce in an air tight container in the fridge for optimally two weeks.

    I buy oodles of Gardein products. It would be great to have coupons, but not having them would not keep me from enjoying these wonderful vegetarian products.
