One of my all time favorite flavors is teriyaki. It goes well with so many things - like chicken or pork, and even veggies. It's just a good thing to have on hand. Instead of running to the store all the time, I've started making this sauce at home. It's delicious & more importantly, I know what's in it! It's so easy to make, and very versatile too. It can be used as a marinade, dipping sauce, or basting glaze. I hope you'll give it a try, and let me know what you think.
- 1 cup Soy Sauce
- 1/4 cup Pineapple Juice
- 1/2 cup Brown Sugar
- 1/4 cup Honey
- 1 Tbs freshly grated Ginger
- 1 Tbs Minced Garlic
- 2 Tbs crushed Pineapple
- 1 Tbs Corn Starch
Whisk together all ingredients.
If you're marinading, that's it. No cooking required. Simply pour the desired amount of the mixture over your raw meat, and let the magic happen.
For a dipping sauce or basting glaze, you'll need to cook it down a bit and get it to thicken. Pour mixture into a small pot and cook, stirring frequently, until it boils and thickens to your desired consistency. It can be used immediately, or refrigerated until ready to use.
What I like to do is to mix up the ingredients & dip out some for the marinade. (Be careful to get a good mix & not steal all the tasty bits floating on top.) Then, I cook down the remaining sauce and pop it into the fridge until I am ready to prepare the meal.
Store any leftover sauce in an air tight container in the refrigerator.
Makes about 2 cups.
