You know when you think you have something in your fridge or pantry and go to grab it and it’s not there. Yes, that happened to me when I was making kebabs the other week. The recipe called for teriyaki sauce and I swore I had half a jar in the fridge, nope it was a different sauce. So the next thing was to find a way to make it myself. I couldn’t send my husband to the store again…I had already sent him early in the day. I found this quick and easy recipe on Pinterest and whipped up a batch.
It was so good and so much better than the jarred variety. I’ll definitely be making my own teriyaki sauce from now on! Give it a try, it’s so simple and I’m sure you probably have all the ingredients in your kitchen right now! I’ll be sharing the kebabs that I made using this recipe later this week!
1 1/2 cups water
3/4 cup light brown sugar, packed
1/2 cup reduced sodium soy sauce
1 tsp garlic powder
3 Tbsp cornstarch
1 tsp sesame oil
Combine all the ingredients in a small sauce pan. Heat over medium heat and whisk continuously. The sauce will thicken and turn dark brown. Remove from the heat and it’s ready to use at this point. It can be stored in the refrigerator for up to one week.
