YUMMY!!!! I used this for a chicken stir-fry. I cooked the chicken in a little sesame oil, added my veggies, then poured this sauce over all and let simmer for a few min. until thickened. OUTSTANDING!!! Only thing I changed was that I added a bit more garlic (well, ok, A LOT more garlic), and some crushed balck pepper. This is such a simple and versatile recipe! Thanks so much Theresa!! ~Manda
This is great Teriyaki - even having fudged the recipe using Splenda instead of regular sugar. It tasted wonderful. I put it over Broccoli and Beef that I had stir fried and it was very delicious. I think I'll be using this recipe again without the cornstarch for a marinade. I don't think I'll every buy bottled Teriyaki again!!
I made this recipe awhile ago and it was fantastic!! I had a a lot of leftover beef and I cooked that up with some frozen stir fry veggies and threw this sauce over it all... My hubby and I both enjoyed it and I will be making it again... The only thing I changed was that instead of using 1 cup of water, I used 1 cup of beef broth... I made this again today except I fried up some chicken, onion and bell pepper... mmm yummy
I use honey instead of brown sugar, and I add a few shakes of sesame seeds, pepper, and chili flakes. Even without those additions, though, this is by far the most delicious recipe I've found for teriyaki sauce. It beats the bottled store-bought stuff ANY day, though with the chili and pepper added it is very reminiscent of "House of Tsang's Korean Stir Fry Sauce," which is what I used to buy. (This tastes better though and is LOTS cheaper!)
