For serving or marinading?

I find the marinade type to be a lot thinner, and saltier and some very close to plain soy sauce.

Sugar is a basic element of teriyaki.

In my opinion and experience, it's best used as a finishing glaze than anything else because of the sugar and how easily sugar burns.

1 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup rice wine--mirin preferred as it's a sweet rice wine
3/4 cup sugar
1 clove garlic, crushed
1 slice ginger, crushed

Combine all ingredients in a non-reactive pan on the stove. Over medium heat, bring to a boil, stirring frequently but watch closely so it doesn't boil over from the sugar. Simmer 5-10 minutes until it's nice and syrupy.

Brush on the meat (or grilled vegies) in the final few minutes of cooking so it sets up as a glaze.

Sometimes sweet sake is involved in teriyaki sauce. I rarely have any on hand, but do sometimes add a few tablespoons of sherry to it.

What about sesame seeds? I think all the recipes I've seen have called for sesame seeds to be added, and I love the nutty flavor and slight sweetness they bring.

They're a finishing garnish. They don't take pan or grill heat well at all.

- 1/2 cup water
- 1/2 cup soy sauce (I use Kikoman)
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/3 cup sherry
- 1 tbsp freshly minced garlic and ginger (feel free to add as much of this as you want…I usually add extra, especially of the ginger)

Saute the ingredients until the sugar has dissolved and it comes to a slight boil. This sauce is one that was passed down to my family from my grandmother, it is amazing! Enjoy!
