Seriously Delicious Garlic Teriyaki Sauce

Seriously Delicious Garlic Teriyaki Sauce

You can use this sauce for more than teriyaki. It can be used as a base for all kinds of dishes. It matches well with meat, fish or tofu.

Ingredients: 1 basic batch

Soy sauce, sake, mirin, sugar
1 tablespoon each
Garlic powder
A pinch


1. If you want to keep the sauce: Mix the sake, mirin and sugar together and microwave for 30 seconds or bring to a boil in a small pan to evaporate most of the alcohol. Mix well to dissolve the sugar.
2. Add the soy sauce and garlic powder.
3. If you use a microwave-safe container you can just keep it as-is.
4. If you're going to use the sauce right away: Mix all the ingredients together and add at the appropriate time depending on your recipe.
