Tried this one on a whim, as I can't tolerate the typical pre-bottled fare that is loaded with high-fructose corn syrup.. substituted 20oz can of crushed pineapple and used about 1 1/2tsp of ground cayenne.. ran it through the blender after simmering... the results are amazing - best teriyaki I have had ever - the fresh ginger and garlic blend beautifully, the sweet of the pineapple and the spice of the ginger and cayenne make for a lot of flavors going on - but they blend beautifully - next is to try this with some of the various fresh or dried chilis from my garden. This is definitely a keeper! Thanks!!!
This is something that I would expect to get in a very nice restaurant. Amazing flavor and so simple to make. I didn't have Mirin so I used 1 tblsp apple cider vinegar. To die for!! This one has been printed and is now in my go-to receipe book! Thank you for sharing with us :)
we are gluten free but we LOVE teriyaki sauce. With this recipe i can control the type of soy sauce that goes in, as well as the level of salt. this is so yummy!
I used this sauce for Turkey Bonzai Burgers, which are burgers marinated in a teriyaki sauce then grilled. Grill pineapple slices. Melt Cheddar Cheese on the burger, add mayo, tomato, and lettuce. Yum! I didn't have any of our regular sauce in the pantry, so I looked this recipe up. It gave the burgers a nice zing. Delish!
I made 1/2 recipe exactly as written, and it was just right. Lovely Asian flavors of sweet/salty with a bite. I served it with chicken yaitori. YUMYUM!
Kick is right! Wow! Be careful. Sweet and Spicy yum! This had a great flavor and went wonderfully with grilled shrimp! Thanks Katie
One little taste took this faint of heart's breath but my heat loving DH didn't even blink. I reduced the quantity to 1 cup but left the peppers as written. We (well, he did)used it as a dipping sauce for Beef Teriyaki # 125838 by Rita L & loved the flavors!
I surprised my DSS for when he took a piece of chicken, which I merinade over night, he was not prepared for the kick. I think I put in alittle more kick than what you mentioned but it came out fantastic just the way we like it.
DD loves pineapple and spicy so we marinated boneless pork chops in this sauce overnite. I did read the recipe wrong and used red pepper flakes instead of crushed red chili peppers but zing was still there. Will be trying chicken breast marinated in this sauce next. Thank you Katie!
This sauce received rave reviews from everyone! Love the little kick too!!! Wonderfully balanced flavors. We used it as dipping sauce for egg rolls and the rest will be used to cook chicken! Very good sauce! Wonderful recipe!
