Peel the garlic, take out the core (which burns easily) and slice a bit on the thick side.
Warm oil (or beef fat) in a frying pan, and fry the sliced garlic over low heat until it's lightly colored to make the garlic chips.
Take the garlic chips out of the pan, add the ○ ingredients to the frying pan and simmer over low heat.
If you simmer it too long it will become too salty, so just try to burn off the alcohol. Taste, and if it's too salty, add some water to adjust.
Add coarsely-ground black pepper and butter. Return the garlic chips to the sauce and it's done.
Story Behind this Recipe
I always eyeball this when I make it, so I wrote down the amounts properly for reference. These are some ingredients that matched the sauce well. Tofu hamburgers, grilled vegetables (eggplant, asparagus, etc.)
When making the fried garlic chips, make sure not to burn them. Otherwise they will be bitter. In Step 3, if there is too much oil, soak some up with paper towels before adding the flavoring ingredients. Otherwise the fat will congeal when the sauce is cold. The texture won't be as appealing.
