Homemade Teriyaki Sauce Recipe- Home in the Finger Lakes

Daylight savings time is doing me in this year, it really doesn’t help that I have a horrible head cold, I am literally sick and tired. So I am going to keep this quick, which is exactly how this Homemade Teriyaki Sauce mixes up.

I think every family has their own meal that goes on the table quickly and is easy on the wallet  stir fry happens to be ours, I probably make stir-fry 3-4 times a month.  I will admit for many years I have relied on store bought bottled sauces for my stir-fries, for some reason I thought it was impossible to replicate Asian sauces without a ton of exotic ingredients.  Oh boy, was I wrong. 

One day when I had procrastinated any sort of dinner planning until about 2:30 pm I pulled out my standby stir fry ingredients, and dug around in my cupboards for a bottle of sauce. Turning up empty handed in the sauce department I turned to Google and ran across this super easy recipe for Homemade Teriyaki Sauce . Figuring the other option is cereal I decided why not give it a go and I am so glad I did, it is excellent!

In the past I have relied on store-bought bottled sauces for my stir-fries, for some reason I thought it was impossible to replicate Asian sauces without a ton of exotic ingredients. Oh boy, was I wrong.

  • Prep: 10 mins
  • Cook: 10 mins

Ingredients

1/4 cup soy sauce

1 cup water

1/2 teaspoon ground ginger

1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

5 tablespoons packed brown sugar

1 -2 tablespoon honey

2 tablespoons cornstarch

1/4 cup cold water

Directions

1Combine soy sauce, 1 cup water, ginger, garlic powder, brown sugar, and honey in a saucepan over medium heat until the sugar is dissolved.

2Whisk cornstarch into 1/4 cup water. Add cornstarch water mixture to saucepan. Simmer until thickened.

3Enjoy on stir-fry, chicken or over rice.

If you use reduced sodium soy sauce you may want to adjust the sugar and honey so the sauce is not overly sweet. Simply start adding the brown sugar and honey 1 tablespoon at a time until you reach a good balance you are happy with.
