Teriyaki Marinade and Sauce


This ginger teriyaki sauce is doubly delicious. I looked long and hard for a good-flavored teriyaki marinade recipe that could double as a sauce. Found a few and modified them to this.

1 cup


  • ½ cup soy sauce

  • 2 tablespoons honey

  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar

  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil

  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar

  • 2 tablespoons sesame seeds

  • 2 cloves minced garlic

  • 1 (1 inch) piece fresh ginger, grated

  • ¼ cup cold water

  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch


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

  2. Whisk together water and cornstarch in a small bowl; add to soy sauce mixture. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer sauce, stirring frequently, until thickened, 5 to 7 minutes.


If using as a marinade, leave cornstarch and water out of the recipe. Just mix ingredients together in a bowl, rather than heating them, before marinating.
