That doesn't come from a bottle?

     I bet most of you think that teriyaki sauce can only be purchased in a store, in a bottle. Or perhaps, that there are some crazy ingredients that we, here in the US, don't have access to. Well, fairies, that is not the case! Teriyaki sauce actually only contains a few simple ingredients, so you can make it at home and avoid all the fillers and preservatives that makes store-bought items last a decade. I may be biased, but I think this teriyaki sauce tastes better than the bottled version anyway! Plus, you can control the consistency, sweetness, saltiness, etc. As Chef John from Food Wishes always says, "You're the boss of your sauce!"

If you are gluten-free, you could even find some gluten-free soy sauce and voila! Gluten-free teriyaki sauce!

Teriyaki Sauce
Yields: 1 cup

C. water
C. sugar
C. soy sauce
¼ tsp. garlic powder
¼ tsp. vegetable oil
1 tbsp cornstarch

In a medium saucepan, add all ingredients and mix well. Place over medium heat and stir frequently. Bring to the boil and continue stirring. Watch frequently, as it may scorch. Once boiling, reduce heat to low and stir constantly. 
The mixture will begin to thicken and become glossy. Remove from heat and allow to cool completely. This sauce can be stored for 7-10 days in the refrigerator.
