  1. In a small bowl, stir together the honey, soy sauce, rice vinegar, 1/4 cup water, and cornstarch.
  2. Put the oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Let it warm up for about 30 seconds, then add the garlic and cook until fragrant and just starting to color, 15-30 seconds.
  3. Add the red pepper flakes and cook until fragrant and the garlic is lightly browned, 15-30 seconds more.
  4. Quickly re-stir the honey mixture and pour it into the saucepan. Bring to a simmer, stirring frequently, reduce the heat to low, and simmer for about 5 minutes. Add more water if needed to achieve desired consistency.
