Walt's Teriyaki Marinade and Dipping Sauce

Total Time
Prep 5 mins

This is an old way of making a teriyaki sauce with honey instead of sugar, giving it a more pleasing sweetness. It's great for marinading and dipping with any kind of meat dish.


  1. Blend ginger, soy sauce, honey, garlic, and onion in a bowl.
  2. Add meat to marinade for at least one hour or refrigerate meat in marinade overnight.
  3. After marinating meat, drain the marinade and add it to a 1/2 cup of water.
  4. Bring it to a boil for 3-5 minutes and use it for a meat dipping sauce during the meal.
  5. Excellent for pork, beef or chicken.

Brushed this marinade on vegetable skewers and boneless, skinless chicken breast...threw it on the George Foreman, and LOVED it!!! I saved a little of the marinade to pour over steamed rice. SUPERB!!! Thanks Walt!! ~Manda

A wonderful flavored teriyaki sauce! The only correction I made to the recipe was to omit the water and replace it with 1/2 cup pineapple juice, it gives an even sweeter (but not overly sweet) flavor. I also thicken this sauce by simmering it and adding 1-2 tbsp. of corn starch. It thickens nicely and is perfect to use on chicken stir fry. My family loves this sauce....thank you :)

I used this marinade on thinly sliced sirloin that was marinated for several hours, then threaded onto bamboo skewers and grilled. The sauce had excellent flavor and I loved how it could also be used as a dipping sauce by adding water and boiling. Served over white rice with some of the extra sauce.
