Have you ever tried making homemade teriyaki sauce?
Once you try this teriyaki sauce you will never purchase a store-bought bottle ever again (I haven’t purchased it for years).
5 very good reasons why you should make this:
- It’s delicious and tastes so much better than a store-bought bottle of teriyaki sauce.
- It’s so darn easy to make.
- It takes less than 15 minutes from start to finish.
- You’re not feeding your family a bunch of ingredients you can’t pronounce.
- This teriyaki sauce has multiple uses.
I like this sauce because it can use it for so many recipes, it’s as versatile as it is delicious. I use it at least 1 a month for a traditional chicken teriyaki with rice and vegetables. It’s also an amazing as marinade on chicken, beef, and seafood. My family loves it in stir fry noodle dishes.
I use this teryaki sauce with rice and frozen vegetables as my go-to meal when I’m in a hurry to get dinner on the table fast. Start the rice first, then make the teryaki sauce, and then defrost the frozen vegetables in the rice ( the heat from the rice defrosts the vegetables fast). A satisifing healthy meal on your table in less than 30 minutes.
