I had a hard time finding a good teriyaki recipe, there are so many different kinds. I found this on the internet, it is a Hawaii style teriyaki, and has the taste I was looking for (grew up in Hawaii). This is very sweet, and thick, and I usually dilute it a little before using it.
- Stir together shoyu and sugar in a small saucepan over low heat until sugar dissolves, about 2 minutes.
- Add ginger, garlic, and simmer for about 30 minutes.
- Remove and discard ginger and garlic.
- Sauce will keep in a sealed container in refrigerator for at least a month.
