Delicious Homemade Teriyaki Sauce

Delicious Homemade Teriyaki Sauce, that’s winning!

That looks so good right, well good news…its SO GOOD! It took about 7 minutes to put it together. I have been craving teriyaki for quite some time but its hard for us to find “clean” teriyaki sauce at the store that isn’t extremely expensive. They contain all kinds of crazy ingredients and this way we could make far more and its cheaper too! A Double Bonus!

I think the most difficult part of this was not sticking my finger in while it was cooking to try it. It was me simply mixing the ingredients with a whisk in the saucepan while it reduced into a thick marinade.

It was perfect for covering our vegetables and chicken for dinner tonight, and honestly I am not sure why I have not made it before. It was super simple and tasted way better than most of the sauces we have tried!

  • Heat up the 1/4 cup of water and dissolve the cornstarch into it. This prevents the cornstarch from clumping and lets it evenly distribute itself.
