An easy recipe for how to make Teriyaki Sauce. You'll use this sweet and spicy glaze in stir-fries, on grilled meats, and for appetizers!
In a small saucepan, combine soy sauce, sugar, water, mirin, ginger, garlic, and red pepper flakes (everything except corn starch and honey). Bring to a boil; reduce heat to simmer.
Remove 2 tablespoons sauce to a small bowl and whisk in cornstarch. Return to the saucepan and continue simmering until the sauce thickens slightly, about 10 minutes.
Remove from heat, stir in honey, and cool to room temperature, or cover and refrigerate for up to one week. Bring to room temperature before using.
