Many kinds of bottled teriyaki sauce are sold at grocery stores, but basic sauce is easy to make at home with a few ingredients. The key ingredient is mirin which adds luster to ingredients when cooking with the sauce.

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup mirin
  • 2 Tbsp sugar

Preparation:

Combine all ingredients in a saucepan. Stir the mixture well. Put it on medium heat and bring to a boil. Turn down the heat to low and simmer for a couple minutes. Stop the heat and cool the mixture.

*If you don't have mirin, you can substitute sake and sugar for mirin. The ratio of sake to sugar is 3 to 1. Adjust the amount of sugar, depending on your preference.
