Homemade Teriyaki Sauce

This is a great marinade for any meat dish, and much cheaper to use than any store-bought brand. Not to mention, it’s fast, easy, you can make it any consistency that you personally prefer, and you don’t have to worry about any preservatives or chemicals. Plus, you can always brag that you made it yourself!


Soy Sauce
Brown Sugar


Pour the amount of soy sauce you would like to use for a marinade into a bowl (I usually prep about 1- 1& 1/2 cups). Then, add crumpled brown sugar slowly to the liquid making sure to mix it in well and break up any clumps.

*If the brown sugar is hard, try putting it in a brown bag and thawing it in the microwave for 15 seconds.

Keep adding the sugar until you get the desired consistency and flavor (it should be a little sweet). If I am making a marinade that is between 1 and 1& 1/2 cups, than adding about 1/4 sugar should be more than enough!

Coat the meat in the marinade and let sit for at least 20 minutes before cooking!
