Homemade Teriyaki Sauce (in 10 Minutes or Less)

It's quite satisfying to make your own homemade sauces and mixes. It's amazing how much money we spend on store bought sauces, not realizing that we can often make the same sauces at home with ingredients we probably already have on hand.

This teriyaki sauce has lots of flavor and it's really easy to make. You can literally have it made and on the table in less than 10 minutes.


  • 2 tbsp. honey
  • 1/4 c. soy sauce
  • 1 c. water
  • 4 tbsp. brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. minced ginger
  • 1/2 tsp. minced garlic
  • 2 tbsp. cornstarch

In a medium sauce pan, whisk together honey, soy sauce, 3/4 cup water, brown sugar, minced garlic, and minced ginger. Stir over medium heat until brown sugar is dissolved.

In a small bowl, mix together cornstarch and 1/4 cup water. Slowly mix cornstarch mixture into the soy sauce mixture in the sauce pan. Mixture will thicken quickly.

If the mixure is too thick, add a little water until desired conistency. The teriyaki sauce is ready to serve right away, refrigerate any leftovers.
