Extremely easy homemade teriyaki sauce with as few as two ingredients, or add just a few more for taste and thickness.
Step One: Base. In a medium sized sauce pan bring the soy sauce, mirin, ginger and garlic to a boil, stirring regularly to prevent burning.
Step Two: Thickening. If you would like to thicken the sauce to use as a heavy coating for chicken or other protein, lower pot temperature to medium. Take the cornstarch and dissolve in 1/8 cup water and add to the boiling mixture in Step One. Change the amount of cornstarch to make the sauce thicker, add water to thin the sauce.
Step Three: Heat! If you prefer a spicy sauce add in the Huy Fong Sriracha sauce to taste after Step 1 for thin sauce or Step 2 for thick sauce. 1 teaspoon adds a lingering burn but is not overwhelming.
sparkdaddy 2y agoSomething i found to be quite amazing is to use habaneros for heat in teriyaki sauce. They also give a nice flavor
ben.karl 5y agoThis recipe is good. Really close to Seattle style teriyaki sauce.
fontainne 7y agoFor a dipping sauce complete Step One For a coating or basting sauce, complete Step One and Two. Step Three can be used for either the dipping sauce or coating sauce. Ingredients like Mirin and Huy Fong Sriracha sauce can be found in the ethnic/asian section of most grocery stores, or at your local asian food market. [I posted this recipe.]
