Teriyaki sauce

sautesmomMay 3, 2011

I'm not sure if this is exactly a "harvest" question (anyone out there growing pineapples?) but does anyone have a killer teriyaki sauce recipe? I am so tired of buying commercial bottles of teriyaki sauce and finding they are barely edible, plus full of preservative and high fructose corn syrup.

Teriyaki Sauce made at Home

1/2 cup water
1/2 cup soy sauce
1/3 cup sugar
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
1/4 tsp. ginger powder
4 tbsp. lemon juice

Mix the above ingredients. Marinate your meat of choice (chicken,
steak tips, etc.). For best results leave in the marinade
overnight. Cook on the grill or as you see fit. Preparation time:
10 minutes.

And if you want a sauce to pour over, use same ingredients, add some cornstarch and cook to thicken.

No mystery ingredients and you can alter to your taste.

NOT a canning recipe though, just make it fresh as needed.

This is a prize winning sauce , not because it's mine , but I was there when it happened , sort of . I worked with a chef whose parents were from Japan . A famous restaurant ran a competition for best teriyaki sauce , and the chefs' ex-wife entered his familys' recipe . It won First Place , she won some bucks , he was po'd . He gave anyone that was interested the rescipe that day . I don't use exact measurement anymore , but here is the basic thing :

1 c. soy sauce
1 c. sugar
1/3 c. sherry

Simmer to melt sugar and meld spices . Tastes best if done ahead and left to age in the fridge .

You're going to like this and make it your own :-)
