Homemade Teriyaki Marinade

I'm slightly addicted to making my own sauces and spice mixes.  It's part of my very mild attempt to live with less preservatives.  Mentally, it really makes me feel like I've accomplished something... I'm not sure what, but let's just go with it! ;)
I found this yummy recipe on Pinterest and decided to re-create it at home, but I wanted to make the teriyaki instead of buying a pre-made bottle.  I never realized how easy it was to make ... and it's so versatile!  You can use this for marinating any meat/seafood, add it to rice, use it as a thin dipping sauce, or throw it in a stir fry!  I love it!  I have a bottle waiting in the fridge.
Best dishes and yummy dreams!


Teriyaki Sauce
Recipe adapted from:

1/2 c. soy sauce
2 c. unsweetened 100% pineapple juice 
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. ground ginger
1 tsp. dry mustard
1/2 tsp. white pepper
3 tbsp. brown sugar

1.  Mix all ingredients together.  
2. Refrigerate and then serve.
*Some reviewers suggested simmering the liquid in a pan to create a more syrupy consistency - its up to you!

I stored the teriyaki in a reusable glass salad dressing container.  Perfect!
Here's a look at the inspiration for making the teriyaki:

Thanks for reading!  Enjoy xoxo

Looks wonderful and so easy! I agree, I like to try to make sauces, dressings, etc. at home too. Thanks for the recipe.

We're marinadeaholics over here so I'm going to make this for sure. Do you have any variations (like the flavors available in the store -- Mesquite, Caribbean Jerk, Tequila Lime, etc.)?

Kim that looks amazing! I have Hawaii on the brain since we're going (both for work and for play) in June.... Now I want to make some Teriyaki Burgers! Perhaps I'll try this with fresh ginger and garlic.... Mmm.... Thanks for sharing!
