Pho Sate roasted garlic and chili pepper sauce.
I usually always go out to eat at Pho Sate in Northern VA for lunch, but I am trying to save money and cook at home instead. I've been trying to make the sate sauce but its always missing something. My sauce doesn't come out red like at the restaurant. I know that it definitely has garlic and red chili flakes. I just don't know how to get that smokey taste and consistency like the restaurant.
