Teriyaki Sauce


This recipe is inspired by my favorite flavor profiles when it comes to teriyaki sauce: sweet but not too sweet, syrupy but still pourable and finger-licking delicious, of course!

Yield: 1/3 cups

Oven: N/A

Preparation time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 4 minutes

Add To Cart

1/3 cup low-sodium soy sauce

2 tablespoons rice vinegar

2 tablespoons dark brown sugar

1 garlic clove, minced

1 teaspoon cornstarch

1 1/2 teaspoons water

Optional garnish:

Toasted sesame seeds

Green onions, thinly sliced


1.   In a small saucepan over medium – low heat, add soy sauce, rice vinegar, brown sugar, and garlic. Whisk until sugar dissolves, approximately 30 seconds.

2.   Meanwhile, in a small bowl, whisk together cornstarch and water to create a slurry.

3.   Add the slurry to the saucepan with the soy sauce mixture and over low heat, whisk until consistency thickens and coats the back of a spoon, approximately 2 minutes.

4.   Remove from heat and use as desired. As an optional garnish, consider finishing with sesame seeds and green onions right before marinating or serving.


Kitchen Note: If the consistency gets too thick, simply thin with a splash of water.
