teriyaki sauce recipe
How can I make this sauce from scratch, that's not to salty or to sweet?
My recipe is really good, I generally create it in the pan when whatever I'm sauteeing is almost done. I'll add some minced shallots, cooking them until it has softened, then I add minced ginger, and equal parts Mirin (sweet rice wine) and Soy Sauce.
Quantities vary depending on what I'm cooking, but that should give you a good start. :)
Here's the best one that I've ever made.
½ cup soy sauce
¼ cup sesame oil
¼ cup rice vinegar
¼ cup sugar ( try brown sugar )
1 TBS Hoisin sauce
1 tsp (or more) of grated fresh ginger
1 clove minced garlic
Combine and use as marinade or sauce.
We make teriyaki sauce for marinating steak. There are just 5 ingredients. The following amounts are enough to marinate 2 Delmonico steaks.
3/4 cup soy sauce
3/4 cup dry vermouth
1 Tbsp. brown sugar
several cloves of garlic, sliced
several thin slices of fresh gingerroot
Make this sauce several hours before using so that the flavors blend. Marinate the steaks for 45 minutes before broiling or grilling. If you want to use some of the marinade as a dipping sauce, either set some aside before marinating the meat or bring the marinade to a boil after marinating the meat and let it cool.
