I know I've posted a teriyaki marinade and sauce before, but I love this stuff and I'm always looking for the perfect recipe. My previous recipe is pretty good, but there is something about this one that makes it a little better. All I know is that it's good. If you're looking for a great sauce or marinade, give this a try. You can use it as a marinade on anything, or just mix up the ingredients, warm them up a little and serve it as a sauce. Either way, you're going to get a great tasting dish!
Teriyaki Sauce or Marinade
adapted from She Shine
½ cup low-sodium soy sauce
½ cup sugar
¼ cup vegetable oil
4 green onions, chopped (white and green parts)
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/8 teaspoon ground ginger
1/3 cup toasted sesame seeds, optional
Combine all ingredients and pour over beef, pork, chicken, or seafood. Cover and marinate in the refrigerator for several hours or overnight. Remove meat from marinade before cooking.
Combine all ingredients in a small sauce pan. Heat over medium heat until mixture thickens slightly and pour over desired dish. If using in a dish that will continue to cook, you can just pour the unheated sauce over the meat and let it cook with your meat or vegetable
*Any time you marinate raw meat, poultry, or seafood, you must bring the marinade to a boil and simmer for five minutes (to kill any bacteria) before using to spoon over the cooked product (or rice, veggies, etc.).
