Looking for an appetizer to prepare for your next potluck? Need a recipe for game day munchies? Our Kare Kare wings are a party favorite! Toss crispy, chicken wings in our nutty, creamy Kare Kare sauce and you have a savory delicious snack. Served with a side of steamed white rice or as is and you’ll be the hostess with the mostess.
Traditionally, Kare Kare is a stew made with slow-cooked oxtail, simmered in meaty, peanut sauce. The orange color comes from annatto seeds. It is thick and very hearty.
This simple glaze starts with simmering sriracha, honey, soy sauce, minced garlic, and Kare Kare until it coats the back of a spoon, before tossing in a knob of butter for richness and a velvety texture. Toss your choice of freshly fried (or grilled!) wings with the sauce, top with sesame seeds and scallions, and dive in! These wings can’t be beat served with an ice cold beer at parties, barbecues, and tailgates.
