Home made teriyaki sauce

Most of the time, people will wonder why should we waste time to make a sauce when you can buy them from a store. When you are serious into cooking, then you don’t buy it. Most of the professional chef doesn’t use ready-made sauce, they make it themselves. This is to understand the basic taste of each ingredients use for a dish. Same for Japanese cooking, teriyaki sauce is one of the very good example. I started to make the teriyaki sauce myself after seriously getting into Japanese cooking. It is pretty simple.

  • Sake
  • Mirin (Hon-mirin)
  • Soy Sauce
  • Sugar (small amount)
  • corn starch (to thicken the sauce) – optional

There is no measurement provided for each ingredients because it goes according to the amount of sauce that you intend to make. For a start, use 1 tablespoon of each (sake, mirin, soy sauce) for experimenting; use 1 teaspoon of cornstarch to thicken the sauce (depends on situation).
Have fun in sauce making!!!
