Gourmet Teriyaki Sauce Recipe

This Teriyaki sauce is a great addition to your favorite stir fry, a delicious topping for rice, or a wonderful marinade for steak or pork or chicken. I think I'm also going to try this as a dipping sauce for chicken fingers! This recipe makes about 3/4 of a cup, so chances are you will have some leftover to try in another dish. This versatile sauce should keep well refrigerated for 2 to 3 days. Bear in mind though it will gain a little strength in flavor as  it rests.


1 tsp sesame oil
1 tbl canola oil
2 cloves garlic (finely chopped)
2 tsp fresh ginger (finely chopped)
1 scallion (finely chopped)
1 to 3  Thai hot peppers (finely chopped)
3 tbl Tamari (soy sauce)
2 tbl rice wine (sake)
2 tbl rice vinegar
1 tbl honey or sugar
Place all of the above ingredients in a jar. Shake well. Refrigerate after use.


The last time that we made this sauce, we used it on our favorite stir fry that evening and then reserved the balance to marinate pork chops for the following nights dinner. I make reference to using 1 to 3 hot peppers as sometimes the hot peppers that are available to me are very small. Just adjust this according to your taste.
