I think it is awesome. My girls LOOVE Teriyaki chicken. When they tasted this recipe, they said, "In future, skip that bought stuff. We will just have this, OK?" Oh, dear. What have i done? LOL! - I didn't have rice wine, and since goal was to use what was in kitchen, I substituted good german Reisling. And I used ground ginger powder, and as we wanted a glaze, in addition to the cornstarch, I added 1/2 TBSP honey. Oh, also, I substituted Erythritol (good for you sugar alcohol) for white sugar, so it is not quite as sweet as with sugar and fewer calories. This is GOOD stuff. Thanks for sharing! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Great sauce. Didn't have rice wine, and didn't miss it. I think it would be a great basic sauce, and it you want to modify it (more or less garlic, something spicy) you could make it versatile. A keeper for sure! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Way too much sugar. The brown sugar alone is just fine. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Best recipe for teriyaki sauce! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this in a pinch after realizing that I was completely out of my store-bought teriyaki sauce. This recipe was GREAT, easy to make, tasted even better than store bought and so much healthier and cheaper! I didn't have rice wine so used the boxed Moscato I had in my fridge. I also didn't use the glaze, didn't realize until after that you were supposed to add that part to the sauce! Oops. Even with those modifications this is a 5-star recipe! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is just the recipe that I was looking for. For my personal preference, I used the low-sodium type of soy sauce, agave instead of sugar, grated the ginger (a li'l more than what was called for), and skipped the garlic. I also skipped the cornstarch as the sauce thickens after being reduced. This is a keeper! Definitely a great alternative to the store-bought ones that's loaded with preservatives and sodium. item not reviewed by moderator and published

I think you could use pretty much anything. I used Moscato (from a box!) since it was the only "sweet" wine I had. It worked great! item not reviewed by moderator and published
