Did You Say Chocolate Teriyaki Sauce?

Yes, I did. A dark, rich twist on traditional Japanese teriyaki. I know it sounds weird, but you'll have to try it...it's a big hit over beef, pork or mushroom dishes or try it over a crock pot full of meatballs.

  1. Add first 5 ingredients to a saute pan over medium heat.
  2. Once the mixture begins to boil, add the desired amount of sugar and stir gently to dissolve.
  3. Allow sugar to caramelize slightly (mixture will begin to thicken), remove from heat and add chocolate. Stir until velvety smooth and enjoy!

I tend to use chocolate to deepen the flavor of chili and some sauces so the addition here made perfect sense. I poured this over tofu and let it marinate then baked it and served it over rice with sliced pickled ginger. It was very yummy. I think this would be great brushed on salmon while grilling and plan to try that next time. Thanks for posting this.
