Low Carb Sticky Asian Wing Sauce & Marinade – a Keto Delight

Do you miss the flavors of Asia in your low carb keto lifestyle? Maybe you seek a low carb keto Buffalo Wild Wing Asian Wing Sauce? If you are looking for a low carb Asian wing sauce, then read on and Fluffy Chix Cook will show you their favorite TNT (tried ‘n’ true) recipe for Low Carb Sticky Asian Wing Sauce that works equally well as an Asian marinade, finishing sauce, and a stir fry sauce all-in-one.






Low Carb Sticky Asian Wing Sauce and Chicken Drumsticks


Many, many years ago (in the 70s) Mom, Dad and I used to watch Martin Yan, creator of the show Yan Can Cook, shown on PBS for years. Martin is a chef, restauranteur, cookbook author, and early pioneer of TV super-chef rock stars. And we loved him because he demystified one of our favorite cuisines: Asian. Now, I suspect that he demystified “Americanized” Asian recipes and not so much truly authentic cuisine. But what they hey? We were Americans! And we lapped his shows up each week like prized Asian plum wine. We never missed an episode. And he was solely responsible for dishes such as homemade egg rolls, fried rice, and pepper beef rolling out of Mama and Dad’s kitchen with comforting regularity.

Fast forward 40-something years and I can still hear Martin’s voice as he reassured me, “If Yan can cook…so can you!” I also remember that many of his dishes that included “brown sauce” or marinade always began with these ingredients bathing the proteins:

  • soy sauce
  • dry sherry
  • rice wine vinegar
  • garlic
  • freshly grated ginger
  • sugar
  • chicken broth (sometimes)
  • pepper flakes (sometimes)
  • corn starch (super high carb—so it’s no longer in the Fluffy lexicon)



Spreading Sticky Asian Wing Sauce


That assembly of ingredients served us well for many years, both in the ‘rent’s kitchen then later in our very own Fluffy Kitchen. Some variation in ratios of those same ingredients built just about every Asian brown sauce and marinade we ever made. Until we turned low carb in 2000 and permanently severed ties with the Chinese delivery guy and high carbage Asian ingredients.

When we went low carb, we made a few minor changes. We changed soy (made from wheat) to real, naturally fermented soy sauce (wheat free), and then later exchanged real soy sauce for coconut aminos (fermented coconut that develops a soy sauce flavor). We also ditched the sugar in favor of concentrated sucralose drops then later for liquid concentrated stevia. And we ditched the cornstarch and chose instead to thicken sauces and marinades post cooking, using either glucomannan powder or xanthan gum (high fiber, very low carb thickeners).

We’re still happy with our marinades today and just do not crave Asian. Why? Because when we crave Asian, we just shake our fluffy little booties to the kitchen and whip up a batch of anything—made with the Fluffys’ variation of Martin Yan’s original brown sauce marinade and the world is a better place. Thank you Martin Yan for years of Asian cooking satisfaction, both low carb and the pre-low carb days.
