4. While cooking the meat, mix the ☆ ingredients in a bowl for the dipping sauce.
5. When the meat is cooked, dip it in the sauce while it is still hot. When it has cooled down a little, put everything in a plastic bag and let it rest in the refrigerator.
6. Please enjoy after marinating overnight. t won't taste good on the same day.
