Y’all know how much I love homemade sauces and condiments. The other day I was visiting a new blog I found on the Internet, and came upon her homemade teriyaki sauce. Oh-MY-Word! If you love teriyaki chicken, then you will definitely want to make this sauce. It has THE best flavor I have ever tasted in my life.
While her sauce calls for fresh ginger, I did not have that so I did some research of what you could use to replace ginger in a recipe and I found out that nutmeg + paprika= ginger–so I tried it. It seemed to work, but the next time I make the sauce I am going to definitely try it with fresh instead of dried substitute.
- ⅓ cup (low sodium) soy sauce
- 2 tbsp. honey
- 1 tbsp. brown sugar
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- ¼ tsp nutmeg
- ¼ tsp paprika
- 1 tsp. apple cider vinegar
- ⅓ cup water
- 1 tbsp. cornstarch
- (If you have the fresh ginger, use it in place of the nutmeg and paprika = 1 full teaspoon)
- In a medium saucepan, combine soy sauce, honey, brown sugar, garlic, nutmeg, paprika and vinegar over medium-high heat, stirring frequently.
- Dissolve cornstarch in water in a separate mixing bowl and then add to the saucepan. Cook for 6-8 minutes, stirring frequently, until thickened.
