Teriyaki Marinade

OK, we all need a break from my job news, so I'm going to briefly post a marinade I used the other night on portobello mushrooms. DIVINE. I grilled two large mushrooms on the grill that had been marinated for about 1 hour in this marinade - then I brushed some on them when they were on the grill. The rest of the marinade I poured over sticky rice. What a great summer meal ~ with a twist!

Restaurant Teriyaki Sauce
6 min | 1 min prep

You know the nice, sweet, thick Teriyaki sauce you get from your favorite take-out joint? Now you can have it at home.

1 1/2 cups, approx.


* 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

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

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

Heat until sauce thickens to desired thickness.

Add water to thin if you over-thick it :).
