There are lots of things I never considered making before, turning instead to the conveniently bottled versions. Salad dressings, mayonnaise, etc. Some of them I still buy bottled – mayonnaise – and some I make from scratch at home – salad dressings. One of these condiments that I recently tried to make from scratch was homemade Teriyaki sauce. It was so super easy and good, it made me wonder why I didn’t think to make it from scratch earlier!!
This homemade teriyaki sauce makes a thicker sauce that the bottled sauce, so it would be good served on top of something, but I used it as a marinade. I was going to use it on some grilled kabobs, but ended up throwing it in with some chicken breasts, letting it marinade overnight, then grilling the chicken. Along with the chicken, my husband grilled some fresh pineapple, which is my favorite way to eat pineapple! We also ate the chicken with some rice, and it was a delicious, filling dinner.
This homemade teriyaki sauce recipe only takes minutes to make, and tastes a lot better than the jarred sauce. This sauce is great just served as a sauce alongside your favorite meats as well as a marinade. I love that it is so versatile!
I think that I’ll be having more Asian inspired meals soon just so that I can make this recipe again!
