This quick and easy teriyaki sauce recipe and glaze uses a handful of pantry ingredients to make THE BEST Teriyaki you’ve ever had!
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1 tablespoon cold water
½ cup white sugar
½ cup soy sauce
¼ cup cider vinegar (I recommend Bragg’s)
1 clove garlic, minced
½ teaspoon ground ginger or 1 1/2 teaspoons fresh ginger
¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
In a medium saucepan, combine sugar, soy sauce, vinegar, garlic, ginger, and black pepper. You can use either ground ginger as directed or about 1 1/4 tsp. of fresh ginger. Combine your ingredients in the saucepan and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. While sauce is heating, combine cornstarch and cold water. When sauce comes to a full boil, add cornstarch mixture and stir until sauce is thickened and bubbly. Remove from heat and use any way you darn well please. You can store it in the fridge in an air-tight container for up to 2 weeks.
