Sweet & Spicy Shiner Bock Glaze


  • H‑E‑B premade Meatballs
  • Salt and pepper
  • Shiner Bock
  • Dark Soy sauce
  • Brown sugar
  • Honey
  • Rice vinegar
  • Hoisin sauce
  • Oyster Sauce
  • Red pepper flakes
  • Sambal
  • Ginger
  • Garlic
  • Fresh Chicken Wings
  • Olive Oil
  • Sesame Seeds
  • Uncle Chris Fiesta Seasoning
  • Vegetable Oil
  • Toothpicks



  • At medium to high heat - add sliced ginger, garlic, and red pepper flakes to a saucepan with preheated olive oil.
  • Once the garlic softens, add 1/2 cup of dark brown sugar to the pan. Let the brown sugar melt and the ingredients combine into a thick liquid.
  • Add 1/4 cup of honey, 1/4 cup of sambal, and 2 tbsp. of hoisin sauce, 2 tbsp. of oyster sauce, 2 tbsp. of dark soy sauce, 1/2 cup of Shiner Bock beer, and 2 tbsp. of rice vinegar.
  • Let the sauce come to a boil then reduce to low heat and let simmer until the sauce sticks to the back of a spoon.


  • In a large pot, heat 2.5 quarts of vegetable oil to approximately 350F degrees.
  • Preheat a grill to 450F-500F.
  • In a bowl, combine chicken wings, olive oil, and a generous amount of Fiesta brand Uncle Chris seasoning. Toss the wings in the mixture until they are completely covered.
  • Place the wings on the grill and rotate until each side has grill marks and a nice crust.
  • Remove the wings from the grill and immediately place them, one at a time, into the 350F vegetable oil. Frying should take 7-10 minutes or until the internal temperature is 165F and the skin is crunchy.
  • When the wings are frying, cook the meatballs on the grill until they reach an internal temperature of 145F.
  • Remove the wings from the oil and toss in the sticky sauce. Drip the sauce over the meatballs. Top each item with toasted sesame seeds, add toothpicks to the meatballs - and you’re ready to eat with an ice-cold Shiner beer!
  • Enjoy!
