I had cooked a pre-marinated teriyaki pork tenderloin, and they always scream out a desire for a sauce, so I did a quick search and the simplicity of this convinced me. I've had a hard time finding an asian market where I live, but I did manage to find mirin at a local supermarket. Unfortunately, I can't seem to find sake. I simply substituted mirin for the 1/4 cup of sake, substituted honey for sugar, added about 1/4 cup finely chopped scallions, 1 tsp chili garlic sauce, a dash of coriander, ground ginger and pre-made five spice, and about a tsp of corn starch whisked into some reserved soy sauce. While the sauce began to bubble as the starch thickened things, I whisked in about 1/2 Tbsp of toasted sesame seed oil and some orange zest. Once it bubbled for about a minute and a half I removed from the heat and let it sit for another minute. The thickness was perfect, and the taste was absolutely amazing. Once I find some sake locally, I'll be sure to try it with just the four ingredients listed.
