    Default Teriyaki Sauce - they are holding out on us!!!!!!!!

    When I go to a teriyaki restaurant the sauce they use is so dam good. I have a rice cooker and love it, I use it at least once a week. I have spend hundreds of dollars on all kinds of teriyaki sauce trying to find one that tastes like the stuff they give you ate the restaurant.
    The stuff you get at the store has a salty taste, the stuff in the restaurant is sweet.

    I have asked many time and all they say is they make it themselves. I do not believe them.

    I found one brand years ago but they are no longer around.

    Anyone have any idea what I am talking about? If so have you found a brand of teriyaki sauce like the ones in the restaurants.

    OLO, simply make your own. It's ridiculously easy. The following recipe features commonly found ingredients, and has the sweet flavor you are looking for.

    Restaurant Style Teriyaki Sauce Yield: 1 1/2 cups

    Ingredients

    * 1/4 cup soy sauce
    * 1 cup water
    * 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
    * 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
    * 5 tablespoons packed brown sugar
    * 1-2 tablespoon honey
    * 2 tablespoons cornstarch
    * 1/4 cup cold water

    Directions

    1.Mix all but cornstarch and 1/4c water in a sauce pan and begin heating.

    2.Mix cornstarch and cold water in a cup and dissolve. Add to sauce in pan.

    3.Heat until sauce thickens to desired thickness.

    4.Add water to thin if it becomes too thick.

    Teriyaki sauce on anything is my weakness. Thanks for the recipe Chef. I need to try this even though I'm the only one in my house that will eat it. My kids are stuck on their own crap, they don't like the sauce.

    It will last about 2-3 weeks if refrigerated, yet the yield is small. You may wish to make it each time you wish to use it. Do you use much? If so, simply double the ingredients for twice the yield.

    I would say I eat it on rice at least once maybe twice a week. I make a big batch of rice and put it in the frige.

    If that is the case, I'd make a double batch and refrigerate the leftover. Remember to reheat it to bubbling in the microwave and stir well, then let it cool a bit before using the second time.

    Why do I have to reheat it?

    I have been looking on the internet and it seems as though I am not the only person with this problem. Why doesnt someone make this stuff and sell.

    Because the ingredients need to re-bond thru heating. The sugar for instance will separate to the bottom of the container.

    There are all sorts of varieties of the sauce available through specialty stores in your neighborhood. The types you find in your local supermarket are geared toward American tastes, and have as much to do with true Chinese cooking as Taco Bell has to do with authentic Mexican style cooking.

    This is without question the most informative website on the entire internet.

    Seriously, there's absolutely no point in the remainder of the internet.

    I wouldn't say that Vike, not by a loooong shot. There simply are a couple of spaces in my cranium less empty or fogbound than the rest of it.

    Thanks for the thought, nonetheless.

    Are you saying Taco Bell isn't authentic? Blasphemy!
