Teriyaki Sauce

I bet everyone has used Teriyaki Sauce in one form or another. Most probably think that making your own is too much trouble. 

They couldn’t be more wrong!  This Teriyaki Sauce takes a few minutes to put the ingredients in a pan, and one minute to cook.

Cool, put ion a jar in the fridge and you have delicious Teriyaki sauce anytime you need it.

It’s sweet, sour, spicy….everything you want in a Teriyaki sauce! You can control the spice whether you put a little or a lot of red pepper flakes, or none at all. It’s up to you. I only put a few in as I don’t want it really spicy, but want a little spice.

You can use this with chicken, beef or pork. Add to fried rice. I haven’t tried it with fish, but I am wondering what that would be like….

Anyway you use it, this Teriyaki sauce will knock you’re socks off!
