This is spicy, but that’s the point! Not a fan? Try adding half as much sriracha OR add an extra 1/4 cup of honey. Taste the mixture BEFORE cooking it, so you can get the perfect sweet/spicy combo for you!
See substitution suggestions for rice vinegar. Do NOT replace with equal parts of another vinegar.
Want the sauce thicker? Keep your slow cooker on the “warm” setting” after cook time has completed with the lid off. It’ll thicken as it sits.
