Since we are craving for Japanese food these past weeks here is another Japanese dish prepared on the same day as the sushi post. In this recipe I created my own teriyaki sauce which is explained further below.
Teriyaki as I had explained before is not a type of sauce as most of us know but instead its a method of cooking where a meat such as beef, tuna or chicken is glazed with a sauce, thats why the word “teri” in Japanese means to shine by giving sugar glazing on meats. Now its also incorrect to marinate meat in teriyaki sauce as the traditional method of preparing teriyaki dish is by glazing the meat with the sauce after cooking. For these recipe I used the traditional methods of preparing your teriyaki dish and here is how it goes.
hmmm i didnt realise its that simple to make and even a lazy cook like me could make it! Are you a chef or something ?
Yeah its really easy, you can even use ready made teriyaki if you want.
And also I am not a chef, I am an IT Professional, cooking is my hobby
i just have to google what star anise is ! Lol and i assume i can use vegetable oil in place of canola oil! 😛
Yeah, definitely you can use any cooking oil, just dont use baby oil ;P
Thanks for reading my blog
lol good thing you pointed the baby oil thing. I AM lazy but i am always fascinated with how different sauces are made. Just like my roux sauce. I like making / experimenting on my salad dressing too (and trying hard not to poison my Beloved 😛 ) rather than buying ready made stuff. I wish i have more time in the kitchen. Only time i got is the weekend. Keep posting ! As long as it is food — im in ! 😀
What is sweet vinegar? I can’t find it at the grocery store.
You can also use Mirin, its a Japanese sweet rice vinegar
Yesterday while shopping with my daughter, we stopped for a bit to eat, both of us chose Teriyaki Chicken. She asked why I didn’t make it at home–I told her I didn’t have a good recipe for it, but I knew where to get one!
So here I am today, cruising your site to find it 🙂
Thats what I love with the blogging circle I am in, the recipes are diverse and if you saw a dish in a restaurant or any other place you will always think there is someone you know who had posted it already for you to try it outt.

Hello! I’m allergic to sesame seeds/oil, can I also replace that with a different oil? And if so, which would you recommend? (I’m also allergic to peanuts/oil)
yes you can replace the oil with a different one, or you can also use butter, margarine or shortening. As for the sesame seed you can remove it or replace it with black poppy seeds or pumpkin seeds.
