Steak Teriyaki

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by currybunny

This is NOT like the thick sauce you get from a bottle, so please be warned! It is however absolutely melt in the mouth divine, and a real treat in our home! Recipe is from The Age newspaper (I think!), can easily be doubled.

This was fantastic! We omitted the sugar because we don't like super sweet stuff. We also cooked our sauce a little longer and it thickened up nicely. By far the best teriyaki sauce we've ever had, except for some really high-end restaurants. This was so delicious and so easy to make, I'm sure we'll do it again!
