This recipe is excellent. I needed a basting sauce so thickened it with 1 tablespoon cornstarch mixed with 1 tablespoon cold water. It thickened to just the right consistency.



This is an excellent sauce. Easy & better than store bought. If you don't have sake use extra mirin.



Very easy and very tastey! The second time I made it I added a pressed clove of garlic and tablespoon of grated ginger to make it my own. It's great the way it is and easy to modify to suit your taste.***I have made this recipe so many times now. It is so quick and full of flavor. It's great for any recipe that calls for teriyaki sauce.
