This is another trick I learned that Yoshida's and Kikkoman DON'T want you to know (not to mention your local Teriyaki joint). Since many people want
to eat healthier and/or cheaper, I figured I'd share.
Basic Teriyaki Sauce
1 part rice wine (mirin)
2 parts soy sauce
3 parts white sugar
Add all ingredients to a saucepan on medium and bring to a slow simmer, stir until sugar is dissolved, let cool and store in refrigerator until
For the health conscious and adventurous, here's some options:
Use organic and/or low sodium soy sauce
Use organic Sake instead of mirin (or sherry if you're in a jam)
Use organic or raw cane sugar instead of the normal white sugar
Add 3-4 1/4" slices of fresh ginger to the sauce while simmering, then remove before bottling/storing (aka hawaiian teriyaki)
Add a dash or two of pepper flakes (or Korean roasted chili powder) and you got spicy teriyaki sauce.
One of these days I want to figure out how to make an Agave nectar version, it has to be possible.
