Making this from scratch is quick and easy and avoids a lot of added chemicals in the commercially made sauce. I came up with this when I did not want to make a run to the store. It works pretty well to marinate tofu which is the only thing I do with Teriyaki sauce.
In first measuring cup or saucepan mix:
• 1/4 cup tamari or soy sauce
• 1 cup water
• 1 tbsp fresh grated ginger
• 3 tablespoons brown sugar
• 1 minced garlic cloves
In second measuring cup:
• 2 tablespoons cornstarch
• 1/4 cup cold water
• If the sauce is too thick add a little water
Makes approximately 1 1/2 cups.
Store in the fridge.
It is nice to have fresh grated ginger and garlic. We always keep jars of both in the refrigerator to ensure we can make recipes when needed rather than delaying for a trip to the market.
