Love it on grilled chicken or tuna. It gives an Asian flair.

We loved it. Very simple. I halved the recipe....but didn't trust the 30 minutes of reduction was sufficient. The glaze seemed very thin. So, I cooked it another 10 minutes...and ruined it. I quickly remade it...but this time I halved the half (so 1/4'd the recipe). I simmered the glaze for about 15 minutes, which was plenty of time for the small amount of liquid. Read More

This worked great in a Blue Apron recipe calling for soy glaze (Black Garlic-Shoyu Ramen). My recipe only calls for 2 tablespoons, but the rest kept well in the fridge for about a month until I used it. I did reduced the sugar a little. Delicious & easy. Read More

This sauce is a simple way to add a ton of flavor to any dish. It's a perfect complement to get that sweet and spicy flavor with other sauces like sambal oelek or gochujang. As others have said, a slightly longer cooking time may be required, I went to about 35 minues on my first batch. The sauce will thicken considerably once cool. I wasn't able to find soy glaze at my local supermarket, and the price to order it online seemed a bit silly once I knew the exact ingredients. Overall a great, easy recipe. Read More

I can't believe this incredible recipe only has 3 reviews. I made this 6 months ago and a dozen times since. I usually double the recipe and keep a jar in the fridge for quick meals after a long day at work. I didn't make any changes--the ingredients are simple and things I always have on hand. I'm making oriental bowls this weekend and of course...I'll be using soy glaze on my tofu and veggies...yum! Read More

If you have a gas stove (like me), I recommend you simmer at low, vs medium-low as the directions indicate. Mine ran over and made a bit of a mess when at medium low, but simmered beautifully once I brought it all the way down. Regardless, it tastes amazing and I will definitely be using this recipe again!

PERFECT! Thanks for posting! Blue Apron uses "soy glaze" in a lot of the recipes we enjoy the most I made it with only changing the cook time. I have an older flat top stove that seems to take longer to heat than coils, or gas; the stove top cook time may vary. Yes, you must be patient - I wouldn't make this if you want it fast. It's a process and when followed according to this recipe, you can't go wrong. I made a full recipe and put the leftover in a glass jar. The next timer I want to make a Blue Apron recipe that needs this ingredient, I'll be prepared instead of having a panic attack. Read More

This glaze is fantastic! I substituted blackstrap molasses for the white sugar because I liked the consistency and wanted to make it healthier and cut some of the brown sugar. I didn't wait for it to thicken as it dressed my chow mein stir fry. Perfect! Will make again. Read More
