    Living in the US, I encounter the word “teriyaki” a lot. In case you don’t know what teriyaki means? Teriyaki is a way of Japanese cooking. “Teri” means luster and “yaki” means grill.

    The key ingredient to make teriyaki sauce is mirin, which creates luster to ingredients. The authentic teriyaki sauce is very easy to make. It’s a combination of soy sauce, cooking sake, mirin, and sugar. Each family has different ratio, but my home is usually 1/1/1 (soy sauce/cooking sake/Mirin + sugar). Depending on ingredients I use, I change my ratio, adjusting soy sauce or sugar.

    I hope you enjoy this recipe!
