here is my recipe for teriyaki sauce or glaze that can be used for chicken, pork or vegetables. instead of spending money on store-bought glazes in the market, where added ingredients may be less than desirable, try this recipe.
i make the recipe in a sauce pot and it only takes a couple of minutes to melt the sugar.
to make the sauce: mix together the following ingredients in a sauce pot. i use 1/2 cup light soy sauce, 1/4 cup water, 2 tablespoons rice wine or white wine, 1 1/2 tablespoons brown sugar, 1 tablespoon honey, 1/4 cup sugar, 1 1/2 teaspoons minced garlic, 1 1/2 teaspoons minced ginger, and 1 teaspoon sesame oil.
bring to a boil and use in recipes.
