Teriyaki Sauce or Marinade


How many times have you bought an entire bottle of Teriyaki Sauce only to use it once and you threw the rest away? I can’t tell you how many times I have done that, but not any more! This delicious recipe makes just the right amount of Teriyaki Sauce for my style of cooking and it only takes a few minutes to make. It is great as a marinade or in recipes.






Combine all seven ingredients

and whisk well until combined.



Use as a marinade or in

your favorite recipes.

      • Yes but no Worcestershire sauce in your recipe. Add it and see it is what the Japanese use in theirs and it is less vinegar to use. I like a little wasabe in my sauce.I just pour in over chicken but marinate fish with it.Pretty much same recipe as yours but used it over 40 years from my visit to Japanese gardens on first island. It can change left overs into something delightful. Thank you for your note but add the Ws and see what I mean

  1. I always make my own teriyaki sauce because it has to be gluten-free. I use rice wine vinegar, fresh garlic and fresh grated ginger and a bit of red pepper flakes, sesame oil. Sometimes I use sugar other times I use honey. Never had it with ketchup before.

  2. This is great. While traveling in RV I can use this for my grilled chicken. Just the right amount and it’s fresh. Don’t have to waste a bottle and take up more room. Have everything I need right now. Thanks again…

  3. Wow, it’s amazing how easy this sauce is to make. I like the idea of making this sauce when needed. I have way too many different sauces in my refrigerator that I have had for who knows how long, and that I purchased for a specific recipe and have no idea when I will use again.
