Cook's Note:

Another way to make this is to stir together soy sauce, brown sugar, water, vinegar or oil, and spices until sugar is dissolved. All of the sugar may not dissolve well but you can instantly add meat, vegetables, or tofu for at least 10 minutes before cooking it for optimal flavor.

Tasty but a little too salty even using the low sodum soy sauce. Recipe was very easy to make. Very generous-sized portion. I made this to top stir fried veggies with rice noodles. Would have liked the consistency slightly thicker. I will make this recipe again and will add a touch of cornstarch to thicken and will reduce the soy sauce from 1 cup to Read More

Easy to make but the soy sauce was overpowering. Ingredient amounts need to be adjusted. Mine tasted better after adding more Brown sugar. Sauce never thickened. Read More

I didn't have the ingredients for true teriyaki, so I looked for something similar- and found this. This is an easy replacement teriyaki sauce using everyday ingredients. I didn't even have enough sugar so I made it with half white sugar and half honey. I also didn't have mustard, but doubled the garlic and ginger. I simmered it for 45 minutes to reduce and thicken. It's tangy and sweet. It's not true teriyaki but it is a great substitute. Read More
