Spice up your next meal with homemade Spicy Teriyaki Sauce. This easy and quick 10-minute recipe is made with a kick of chili garlic sauce for an added kick of flavor and spice. It's excellent in stir fry, over chicken (or chicken wings), fish, vegetarian wraps, or in a salad dressing!
In a saucepan, whisk together the soy sauce, brown sugar, honey, ginger, garlic, chili paste, sesame oil, and rice vinegar (all ingredients except for the corn starch and water).
Bring it to a low boil over medium heat and let the sugar dissolve for approximately 1-2 minutes.
In a small bowl, stir together the water and cornstarch to make the cornstarch slurry. Once it's combined, pour it into the saucepan and whisk to incorporate it into the sauce. Bring back to a boil, then lower the temperature and simmer the sauce for an additional 4-5 minutes until sauce thickens, continuing to stir occasionally. If it isn't thick enough at that point, you can simmer for up to 10 minutes.
Remove from heat and use immediately as desired or let cool slightly before transferring to a jar for storage. Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 1 week.
This recipe makes approximately 1 cup of teriyaki sauce.
Vegan: replace the honey with maple syrup or brown sugar.
