I love teriyaki sauce. I have to say it's hard to find a good one at the grocery store. Mostly because the texture is too thin, or they're not sweet enough. Am I the only one with this problem? Probably not. Well the good news is, making teriyaki sauce is super simple and probably costs a couple bucks to make. This sauce comes out sweet, thick and just a tiny bit gingery.
Here's what you'll need:
- 1/2 cup of Brown Sugar
- 1/2 cup of Soy Sauce
- 1 cup of Water
- 1 teaspoon of Ginger Powder
- 1 teaspoon of Garlic Powder
- 1 tablespoon of Sesame Seeds plus more to garnish
- 2 tablespoons of Arrowroot Powder - can be subbed with Corn Starch
- 1/4 cup of cold water
- In a medium sauce pan mix brown sugar, soy sauce, water, ginger powder and garlic powder. Stir together until sugar is melted. Approximately 5 minutes.
- Mix arrowroot powder with cold water in a separate container.
- Remove soy sauce sugar mixture from stove top and mix in arrowroot mixture, whisk together until thoroughly mixed.
- Add sesame seeds.
I used mine as a marinade for a salmon dish. It came out great, plus you can use it as a dipping sauce on the side.
