In a small bowl, stir together the honey, soy sauce, rice vinegar, 1/4 cup water, and cornstarch.
Put the oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Let it warm up for about 30 seconds, then add the garlic and cook until fragrant and just starting to color, 15-30 seconds.
Add the red pepper flakes and cook until fragrant and the garlic is lightly browned, 15-30 seconds more.
