"Simple and easy homemade teriyaki sauce. Never buy a bottle again! Keep careful watch over sauce when it's over heat. Increase or reduce the amount of garlic, onion, and ginger to your liking. While hot, pour immediately over chicken, veggies, stir fry, etc., or store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for a week."

Loved it! Super easy to make.I had all the ingredients on hand, no specialty ingredients that ill never use again. A little salty,next time I'll use low sodium soy sauce.

After making this for the first time my wife who has worked as a chef for 23 years said it is the best she ever tasted. I make it on a regular basis.

Love this recipe it is my go to over buying in the store

Delicious! And no HFCS.

This turned out great! I actually marinated my beef in it before woking it and it works good that way too. I will cut back on the sugar next time but other than that I have no complaints.

Perfect for any dish. Great Flavor and can make it in a pinch.

A bit too sweet, next time less sugar and a little water.

I love this! Did not change a thing except I used minced garlic because I ran out of powdered. I will use low sodium soy sauce next time but someone in my house but a Costco size jug of it so am...

Used it in stir -fry. Yum! I love that the recipe called for ingredients that I already had in my pantry. Our house smelled good for a long time after the meal. :) Thank you!
