Years ago I was given a recipe for homemade teriyaki marinade by a friend from Hawaii. The recipe was rich, flavorful, and surprisingly easy to make. I regretfully somehow misplaced the recipe over the years. Now that I'm married and back in the kitchen, I'm cooking more and a lot more from scratch. I've tried to recreate the recipe I had years ago and think I've done a pretty good job. Preparation time does not include two hours in refrigerator to marinate meat. Hope you like it.
