A wonderful base to give meats and other dishes a sweet teriyaki flavor.
2 cups Soy sauce (I prefer the light soy sauce but any will work)
¾ cup sugar
1 Tbsp brown sugar
1 Tbsp fresh garlic (minced)
1 Tbsp fresh ginger (grated)
¼ cup sesame seeds (toasted)
¼ cup sesame oil
¼ cup dried onion
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp ginger powder
1 Tbsp cornstarch (dissolved in water)
Whisk all the ingredients together in a small bowl. Transfer the mixture to a small sauce pan. Heat the sauce over low heat until the sugar begins to dissolve. This should take between 10 – 15 minutes. It’s alright if all the sugar doesn’t completely dissolve, it will eventually dissolve over time. In the last 5 minutes of cooking, dissolve the cornstarch in ¼ cup of water and add to mixture. This will help to make the sauce a little thicker without changing the flavor very much.
Allow to cool and transfer to a bottle so you can put it in the refrigerator. It’s best to all to cool overnight before use, but if you are in a hurry, you can use it to marinate right away. Works great on vegetables for soy meat products.
