Teriyaki Sauce – GLUTEN FREE!!

It has been nearly 3 years since Mike has had his old fave – chicken teriyaki rice bowl.   Its not that I hadn’t tried to come up with my own teriyaki sauce, its just that I suck at it.  So I caved and found a recipe online – and?  It is DIVINE.  Simple, easy, goes with anything (we had it with pork tenderloin over rice), and tastes great!

Thank you very much JuniperNW at RecipeZaar.

  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 5 tablespoons packed brown sugar (I substituted 1/2 splenda)
  • 1-2 tablespoon honey
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup cold water

Directions – Combine everything except cornstarch and 1/4 c water in a saucepan and put on med-high heat.  Combine cold water and cornstarch separately in a shaker.  Add liquid to saucepan.  Heat until thickened.  If it is too thick, you can add a bit of water.

    Sadly, soy sauce does contain wheat (gluten). Just found this out myself today.

    • Yes, most of the time it does. I have found a brand here (canada) that does not – “no name” of all things, from Canadian Superstore. I think it would be considered ‘fake’ soy sauce by most connoisseurs. but I’m deliriously happy to use it! lol

  2. We are new to the whole gluten free issue, but I have been researching and reading all week about Celiac Disease. I found 1 brand of soy sauce made with soybeans, San-J Organic Tamari. I can’t wait to make this. Thanks so much!!

    You can also subsititue Bragg’s Liquid Amino’s, gluten free, msg free, preservative free, but lots of flavour! Tastes very similar to regular soy sauce too!
