Teriyaki Sauce Recipe

This very easy teriyaki sauce strikes just the right balance of savory-sweet-salty. There are only 6 ingredients here: soy sauce, mirin, vinegar, sugar, ginger, and a hint of starch for that velvety mouthfeel. Mirin is a traditional Japanese sweet rice wine, which can be found in most grocery stores and adds a much more authentic teriyaki flavor.

Shopping List
  • 1/4 cup tamari (I use low-sodium)
  • 2 tablespoons mirin
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons sugar (or coconut sugar)
  • 1 teaspoon freshly grated ginger
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch (Note 1)
  • 1 teaspoon cold water

Instructions
  1. Step 1: In a small bowl, stir together the starch and water until a slurry is formed. Set aside.
  2. Step 2: Add all of the ingredients to a small saucepan, except the starch slurry. Bring the sauce to a low simmer over medium heat. Whisk the slurry once more and pour it into the sauce, stirring as you do so. Continue stirring for 1 to 2 minutes, or until the sauce thickens slightly. Remove from the heat and set aside. It will continue to thicken as it cools.
  3. Serve: Enjoy your teriyaki sauce smothered over Teriyaki Tofu, vegetables, or Teriyaki Pineapple Burgers.

Recipe Notes

Note 1: If you prefer your sauce quite thick and syrupy, increase the starch to 1.5 teaspoons.

This soy-free teriyaki sauce strikes just the right balance of savory-sweet-salty. There are only 6 ingredients here: aminos, vinegar, sugar, fruit juice, ginger, and a hint of starch for that velvety mouthfeel. Since most teriyaki sauces contain alcohol from Japanese mirin, this paleo-friendly version substitutes the mirin to keep this alcohol-free (and still delicious).
