Homemade Teriyaki Sauce is simple and delicious.
I have always used store bought teriyaki sauce. Never thought anything about it until we ran out. I decided to make it ourselves and wouldn't you know it....super easy and super delicious!
This teriyaki sauce can become really salty tasting. Here are my tips to avoid that over salty taste: Use a low sodium soy sauce and don't boil the mixture. Just bring to a simmer and then remove from heat. If it's too salty, add ¼ cup additional water and taste.

If too salty, add an additional ¼ cup of water.

I make my own teriyaki sauce but I never use a recipe. I just throw stuff together until it tastes the way I want it. Pinning your recipe so I now have a real (and easy) recipe to follow! Yay! 🙂
I'm impressed! I hope my recipe measures up!

Sounds so great and easy to make! Do you know how long it keeps?
I don't know how long it keeps! The first batch we used right up. The second batch has been in the fridge for one week and is still good.

What a fun recipe, Kathy! We love making homemade sauces, but I've never even thought about making homemade teriyaki. It sounds super easy to make, and I think I have all of those ingredients in my pantry right now. Yum!!
It is really easy to make and adds so much flavor to any dish.
Making sauces is fun, but I've never tried to make my own teriyaki sauce before. This looks great! I definitely have to try it.
I love using teriyaki sauce as a marinade. Super simple to make it yourself.
