How To Make Teriyaki Sauce

Making your own Teriyaki Sauce is easy.  It's cost effective and taste a lot better than what you get from the commercial bottle you buy from the store, minus all the preservatives, artificial flavorings, and other unhealthy additives to keep its shelf life longer.

Here's a recipe which you can use as a sauce or a marinade.  You can also put it in a bottle, keep in the refrigerator, and it would last for about two weeks or more.  Just double the ratio if you want to make more. 


1/2 cup soy sauce (use Japanese soy sauce)
1 cup Mirin
3 tablespoons sake wine
1/3 cup sugar
5 slices ginger
3 cloves minced garlic


Put everything in a sauce pan and bring to a boil.  Turn down heat to low and simmer for about 20 minutes. Let cool.

* Makes about 1 1/2 cups Teriyaki Sauce

Pickled Radish

1 cup water
1 cup white vinegar
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon salt
3 cups thinly sliced radish
5 cloves garlic
3 whole red bird's eye chilies


Boil the water, vinegar, sugar, and salt together in a saucepan for about 30 minutes to make a brine.  Let cool. 

Put the sliced radish in a big mason jar with the garlic cloves and the bird's eye chilies. 

Pour the cooled brine in the mason jar. 

Keep in the refrigerator for 24 hours.
