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.

I will definitely make this again. It was nice and thick and stuck to the meat (in this case steak tips). Pretty simple to make, too! Read More

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. Read More
