How to make homemade teriyaki sauce?
It’s easy!…and so much tastier (and cheaper!) than the store-bought varieties
Enjoy this sauce on meats, stir-fry, tofu, skewers, etc.
Start by combining 3 minced cloves of garlic, 1/2 cup of sugar, and 1/2 cup of soy sauce in a small saucepan.
Next, in a small dish, whisk together 1 tablespoon of cornstarch and 2 teaspoons of Mirin. Don’t worry…if you’re thinking: “What the homemade-teriyaki-sauce-is-mirin?!” …
I came with (some) answers. It’s a rice wine similar to sake but with lower alcohol content. It is made up of 40%-50% sugar. *”Phew! that doesn’t sound so intimidating, right?”*
Next, pour the mirin cornstarch mixture into the small saucepan with the yummy garlic, sugar, soy sauce mixture. 🙂
Cook over medium heat, until the sugar has dissolved and …voila! Teriyaki sauce! Don’t you feel like a professional chef after making something like that?
Pour over chicken or toss with a stir healthy vegetable stir-fry.
Have a beautiful day.
