  1. We love using it in our home
  2. We were tired of store-bought bottles that contained a bunch of funky ingredients.

Thick or thin teriyaki sauce? It is all up to you. I learned that traditional Japanese teriyaki sauce is thin in texture, in contrast to the westernized recipes that are thick, so the addition of the cornstarch slurry in the recipe and the thickness of the sauce is entirely up to you.There is no need for store-bought teriyaki sauce ever again!

After making this sauce and home and having leftovers to experiment with, we realized it can be used for so much! Try it out as a marinade, glaze, salad dressing, burger condiment, sauce for noodle dishes or even tossed into stir-fries. It seems like the possibilities are endless and we encourage you to have fun with it. One of our favorite ways to serve it is in our Restaurant-Style Teriyaki Tofu Bowls!

Restaurant-Style Teriyaki Sauce {easy + 7-ingredients}


  • Author: Jasmine @ Sweet Simple Vegan
  • Total Time: 10 minutes
  • Yield: ~1 cup

Description

There is no need for store-bought teriyaki sauce ever again! This restaurant-style teriyaki sauce is so easy to make, requires just 7-ingredients that are most likely already in your pantry and is ready in about 10 minutes.


Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup dark brown sugar*
  • 2 tablespoons seasoned rice vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon agave nectar or sweetener of choice
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 cup cold water (optional)*
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch (optional)*

Instructions

  1. In a small pot over medium heat, add in and mix together all of the ingredients except for cornstarch and the cold water.
  2. In a separate bowl or cup, whisk together the cornstarch and cold water until dissolved. Add this mixture to the sauce in the pan and whisk everything together until uniform.
  3. Heat until sauce thickens, about 3-4 minutes, adding water if needed to thin.
  4. Remove from heat and cool.

Notes

  • Store in the refrigerator in an airtight container for up to a week.
  • Light brown sugar works as well!
  • The cornstarch and water slurry is optional, depending on whether or not you want thin or thick teriyaki sauce. We went for thick but it is up to you. Traditional Japanese teriyaki sauce is thin in texture in contrast to the westernized recipes that are thicker.
  • Prep Time: 5 minutes
  • Cook Time: 5 minutes

    Excellent sauce and great with stir fry. Much less salty than even lo-salt store teriyaki sauce and has more depth of flavor. I usually double recipe when I make it and store in mason jar in refrigerator so I always have it on hand.
