Easy Teriyaki Sauce

Oh my goodness - if I'd known making teriyaki sauce at home was this easy, I'd have quit buying it YEARS ago! This recipe is borrowed almost entirely from this post on budgetbytes.com. I added a little extra garlic and ginger because...well...that's the way I roll.


  • 1/4 cup soy sauce or Tamari
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons fresh ginger, grated
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1/2 cup water


  1. Put the soy sauce, brown sugar, garlic, and ginger in a small sauce pan.
  2. In a Pyrex measuring cup, mix the cornstarch and water until the cornstarch dissolves.
  3. Add the cornstarch and water mixture to the sauce pan.
  4. Bring the contents to a simmer, whisking constantly.
  5. Once the contents begin to simmer, remove from the heat.
  6. Enjoy as a sauce or marinade! (I like it with canned jackfruit and sliced mushrooms, cooked in the Instant Pot and then used to make teriyaki tacos - delish!)
