      This was amazing! I did have to tweak mine a bit as I don't have mirin and I can't tolerate garlic, but it still came out pretty good! The changes I made were 1/4 cup of kikkoman soy sauce (didn't have light soy sauce), 1/4 cup of white wine vinegar, 3/4 cup of white sugar, and a generous pinch of ground ginger. I did add a bit of cornstarch to thicken it up as well. I dissolved about a tablespoon of cornstarch in 1/3 cup of water and added it in a bit and let it boil and simmer. I wish I had sesame seeds to garnish the dish with and make it a bit more authentic! This will definitely be my go to recipe for teriyaki sauce from now on!

      I have to confess I didn't have miren or sake so I just used white wine. Overall the flavor was good despite that though. Only thing was, it didn't thicken up as I expected. I had to add a bit of cornstarch to get it to be more like a BBQ sauce consistency. Keep in mind when making this, the flavors change as it cooks, so hold off adding more of anything until closer to the end. BTW I used low sodium soy and it was still pretty salty, so go easy on the salt at first. I will make this again, but will experiment with it more next time. Looking forward to using it on my sushi tonight. Thank you!

      I love it. I marinated beef ribs with it and I really enjoyed my big lunch.
