Teriyaki Sauce

This sauce is SO good.  Do NOT use regular soy sauce though, the result will be so salty that you won't be able to handle it.  Watch this sauce carefully because once you add the cornstarch, it thickens pretty quickly. 

  • 1 cup water
  • 1/4 cup low sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon packed brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon honey

  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder, optional
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup cold water


  1. Combine 1 cup water, soy sauce, brown sugar, honey, ginger, and garlic powder in a saucepan over medium heat. Cook until nearly heated through, about 1 minute.
  2. Mix cornstarch and 1/4 cold water together and stir until dissolved. Add to the saucepan. Cook and stir sauce until thickened, 5 to 7 minute.   

 Hint:  I use a very small lunch type container to mix my cornstarch and water.  I put the lid onto the container and shake it until the cornstarch has dissolved.
