Stir together, bring to a gentle boil.
Mix cornflour with warm water, stir, making sure there are no lumps. Add into the marinade and stir for one minute.
Turn the heat off, the sauce should thicken more as it cools, if not add more cornflour (mix with water first to prevent lumps), until at your desired thickness. If you want you can remove some sauce now, to use as a drizzle when serving.
