Teriyaki means shiny (teri) grilled (yaki). Traditional Japanese Teriyaki Sauce is not thickened, but most bottled Teriyaki sauces in North America are heavily thickened, like barbecue sauces. Here we present two teriyaki sauces, either of which can be thickened to make a glaze.

Teriyaki Sauce        
Cornstarch
Water
Teriyaki Glaze   -   (5 min)
This is a little more like the bottled Teriyaki sauces found in North America.
  1. Bring either of the Teriyaki Sauces given above to a simmer.
  2. Make a slurry of the Cornstarch and Water. Stirred it up well and stir into the hot sauce. Simmer stirring until the sauce thickens (1 or 2 minutes). It should not be too thick because it will thicken more as it cools.
NOTES:
  1. Soy Sauce:   Use a Japanese type soy sauce, like regular Kikkoman. If you will be serving to a person with Celiac disorder, use a Tamari type sauce that does not list Wheat in the ingredients.
  2. Mirin:   This is a sweetened, higher alcohol Sake used for cooking rather than drinking. The real thing is preferred, but most on the market is fake, though usable. You could also use regular Sake - this stuff is already way sweet from the sugar.
  3. Sake:   Use a good drinkable Sake.
  4. U.S. measure: t=teaspoon, T=Tablespoon, c=cup, qt=quart, oz=ounce, #=pound, cl=clove in=inch, ar=as required tt=to taste
