  • 1 cup soy sauce
  • 1 cup water
  • ¾ cup white sugar
  • ¼ cup Worcestershire sauce
  • 3 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil or light tasting oil of your choice
  • 1/3 cup dried onion flakes
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • ¼ teaspoon ground ginger
  • 3 tablespoons potato starch or cornstarch


  1. In a medium bowl, mix all ingredients except potato starch, stirring together until sugar dissolves. At this point, the mixture is a great marinade.
  2. Marinate steak, tofu, or chicken for up to 4 hours, and grill or roast in the oven.
  3. For Teriyaki sauce, place mixture in a small saucepan and heat over medium heat until lightly boiling. Slowly stir in potato starch. Continue stirring until mixture thickens, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat. Teriyaki Sauce is ready to enjoy.

Recipe Notes

Makes 3 cups sauce
I figured about 2 tablespoons per serving
**Note from Jan 2015: I made it decreasing the amount of sugar to 1/2 cup and it was delicious. I'm going to try it next with 1/4 cup of sugar and see how it comes out.
