"I looked long and hard for a good-flavored teriyaki marinade recipe that could double as a sauce. Found a few and modified to this."

  1. Stir soy sauce, honey, rice vinegar, sesame oil, brown sugar, sesame seeds, garlic, and ginger together in a small saucepan over medium-high heat.

This is a great recipe. I doubled this because I was making a large dinner. I added 1/4 C molasses (a secret Japanese ingredient) and 2 more Tablespoons of brown sugar (it wasn't quite sweet e...

Have been looking for this recipe for a long time. Used fructose in place of honey, balsamic rice vinegar, a ton more minced garlic, and added a big splash of sherry at the end. Did not add cor...

This is really good. For us the sesame seeds are not optional. The fresh ginger is great. I can see being able to use this for a lot of purposes. Delish! (I do use low sodium soy sauce)

This is an amazing recipe. Even better than the store-bought, and much cheaper. I use it for chicken and fish and it's great with both.

Very delicious, full of authentic flavor. I didn't have rice vinegar, so I substituted apple cider vinegar. I also added extra garlic as that's my preference :-) Thank you for the recipe

So much cheaper than buying store bought, with the same great flavor. Will be making my own from now on. Love it! Thank you for sharing.

Exactly what I was looking for! I'd run out of teriyaki sauce and needed something quick for the pork stir fry I was throwing together. Sautéed chopped carrots, red peppers and celery (about 2...

Easy to make because I always have these items on hand. Tastes better than store bought too.
