Easy Teriyaki Marinade and Sauce

READY IN: 7mins
YIELD: 1 cup




  • In a saucepan, combine the dry ingredients. Include the cornstarch if you want a sauce to add to your stir-fry or if you want a basting sauce. For a marinade, leave out the cornstarch.
  • Add soy sauce, water, and vinegar.
  • Stir or whisk until all ingredients are thoroughly mixed.
  • Set the saucepan on medium heat and bring to a boil. For a marinade, let cool and pour over meat. For stir-fry or basting, boil for one minute or until thickened.
  • If using as a marinade, place meat in a shallow container and pour the sauce over all. Cover and refrigerate, turning meat occasionally. Marinate prawns for no more than 30 minutes, chicken or beef 4-8 hours.
  • Unused sauce can be stored indefinitely in the refrigerator. Discard any leftover marinade, as the meat juices in it will spoil.
