Recipe: Teriyaki Sauce

Did you know just how easy it is to make Teriyaki Sauce yourself??? Well … it is! Takes .. at the most.. about 5 minutes to make and you control the ingredients.. so you know exactly what’s in it…

This is a perfect sauce for some quick stir fried vegetables and chicken or shrimp over rice… a meal in under 30 minutes… now how great is that?


This sauce is made with soy sauce… you can purchase lower sodium soy sauce to cut the sodium.

Be sure to mix the cornstarch and ¼ cup cold water separately.. I use a glass measuring cup and mix it with a fork to be sure it’s completely dissolved.

Add the water and cornstarch to the rest of the ingredients when it is at a low simmer… use a whisk to mix it in.

I “eyeball” (to use Rachael Ray’s term) the amount of honey…

If the mixture gets too thick for your tastes… simply add more water.

This is a small batch it will make just enough for two people… I usually double the recipe.

Try this quick and easy sauce… you’ll never purchase the jarred stuff again.
