DIY Teriyaki Sauce
Teriyaki sauce is fantastic. It is sweet, tangy and full of flavour.
But, buying it ready-made can be very expensive and include unwanted extra sugar and additives.
The beauty of this recipe is that it is:
- Extremely easy to throw together
- A fantastic option to freeze
- Completely customizable. Add more or less of the spices to get it exactly the way you like it
I love having batches of this in the freezer so that I have the option to just add it to meatballs, chicken, stir-fries or as a dip for fresh vegetables.
Give this recipe a try and make adjustments. Once you are happy, make larger batches and freeze them for later.

In the video, I also cook meatballs to go with the sauce. The homemade meatballs were frozen and the recipe can be found here.
The primary focus of the video is the sauce and how to use it.
