This sauce is similar to the Yoshida sauce that can be found at costco and other stores. Note that this is not an exact copy but a very similar taste that can be made with ingredients that can be found in your kitchen and not a laboratory.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine soy sauce, 1/2 cup brown sugar, 1/2 cup white sugar, green onions, ginger and garlic in a 2 quart saucepan. Bring the mixture to a slight boil. Reduce the heat to low and simmer for 15 minutes.
  2. Pour the remaining white and brown sugar and the honey into the saucepan. Bring to a boil. The mixture will rise and foam, when it does this and doubles in size remove the pan from heat and cool.

This is great, I'm glad someone made this. I can't find this stuff anywhere! Two things though: I only used 1/2 cup of each sugar and maybe a tablespoon of honey. I only added two tablespoons combined of the sugar at the end. Also, about a 1/2 cup of orange juice works great too. I suggest changing the recipe to this: 1/2 cup white sugar 1/2 cup brown sugar 1/2 orange juice 1/4 teriyaki sauce 1 tablespoon cayenne Forget the 1 cup of honey. Everything else is fine. I think the sugar in the regular recipe is way too much.

This is excellent! So flavorful! It was easy to make and has ingredients I usually have on hand. I am going to use some of it on some chicken wings. I made it as written. The recipe probably made about 3-4 cups. I didn't measure it after I made it. I will definitely be making this again. Thanks for sharing your recipe. Made for PAC Spring '09

Hello, thank you so much for this recipe. I'd like to suggest a small addition to it - I've developed an allergy to red pepper (cayenne, chili pequi, any red pepper and lately even paprika). I have also recently developed an allergy to the original Gourmet Yoshida Sauce, so this tells me you need to add just a little red pepper of some kind to the recipe to get you a bit closer to the real thing :) Of course I'll use it as is ....
