I decided to hunt down a recipe for teriyaki sauce when I was in the middle of something that called for it (Anniversary Chicken I from this site). I usually just sub soy sauce. It tastes like a very tangy soy sauce, and soy sauce is already tangy. (Word of advice: just cook with it and don't "taste test" it like I did -- took a while to shake that one off. :-)) I did a bit of reading to see how authentic this was, and looks as though the soy sauce to sherry ratio is way high. Sherry isn't authentic but a reasonable substitute. But THEN I looked at the stuff in the store later and most of it was pretty "fake" anyway. So I figure, even if it isn't exactly what you'd find in a Japanese restaurant, it's still a lot like what you'd find in a typical store. It came in handy when I needed it, and worked well in the recipe, so it gets a 5.
