Daylight savings time is doing me in this year, it really doesn’t help that I have a horrible head cold, I am literally sick and tired. So I am going to keep this quick, which is exactly how this Homemade Teriyaki Sauce mixes up.
I think every family has their own meal that goes on the table quickly and is easy on the wallet stir fry happens to be ours, I probably make stir-fry 3-4 times a month. I will admit for many years I have relied on store bought bottled sauces for my stir-fries, for some reason I thought it was impossible to replicate Asian sauces without a ton of exotic ingredients. Oh boy, was I wrong.
One day when I had procrastinated any sort of dinner planning until about 2:30 pm I pulled out my standby stir-fry ingredients and dug around in my cupboards for a bottle of sauce. Turning up empty handed in the sauce department I turned to Google and ran across this super easy recipe for Homemade Teriyaki Sauce. Figuring the other option is cereal I decided why not give it a go and I am so glad I did, it is excellent!
