Oooooh I love teriyaki sauce! I love grilled teriyaki chicken and steak, in fact teriyaki steak is my favorite! We do have our favorite bottled teriyaki sauces and marinades, but this little recipe I came up with is a gem, and you probably have all the ingredients in your kitchen already!
What you need:
~ 1/3 – 1/2 C. soy sauce (depending on how much meat you have)
~ 1 T. brown sugar
~ 1 t. minced garlic (I use the stuff already minced in the jar!)
What you do:
Step One: Mix all ingredients in a bowl until sugar is dissolved.
Step Two: Add chicken or steak to a gallon sized Ziploc baggie and pour marinade over the top.
Step Three: Marinate for a few hours (over night is best) and then grill, pan fry or bake!
*Hint* If you would like to use this marinade as a sauce to make teriyaki stir fry, cook chicken as vegetables in olive oil first. Then mix 1 T. cornstarch into the sauce mix and mix until combined. Add cooked chicken and veggies into one pan (hot) and slowly add the sauce, it will thicken after just a few minutes of cooking. YUM!
