    it wasn't bad but I'm going to add more Ginger next time. the version I got wasn't as flavorful compared to store brands. I made this again at 8:30 p.m. PST and added extra garlic& fresh ginger. both of the extra ingredients really brought out the flavor 🙂

    This is literally the only recipe of teriyaki I have ever seen with Vinegar... It stank up the entire house and definitely not in a good way. It tasted like no teriyaki I had ever tasted. It should be named Apple Cider Teriyaki so people don't think this is something it's not. I'm dumbfounded by how many people love this acidic "teriyaki" recipe... on top of that, it calls for white sugar! Hello.. Red Flag anybody?! Anyway I give it a Green Splat... I know that's for Rottentomatoes.com but it's far more applicable here.

    Tastes great ! I reduced the sugar and vinegar to half of what was required . I like my terriyaki sauce less sweet .

    Great consistency and good flavor. Next time I will add a little less vinegar and some red pepper flakes.

    Delicious! As a Seattle native living in a state with no decent teriyaki, I both consider myself a teriyaki connoisseur and truly miss having teriyaki grill nearby. Not once has a store bought sauce come close to duplicating the house made sauces as my old haunts. This one is fantastic! (I added a bit of extra sugar having been told that the secret to the next sauce is plenty of sugar!)

    Super delicious and super quick! I ended up doubling the recipe. I wanted a quick dinner and used a skillet to cook chopped up boneless chicken thighs ( I was winging it) seasoned the chicken thighs with salt and pepper only, didn’t cook them all the way through before I added the teriyaki sauce. I let them cook in the sauce until it began to become thick and kind of candied the chicken pieces...served over rice. This is a staple in my house now! P.s. I used squeeze ginger because I didn’t have any of the other options on hand.

    This was great! Doubled recipe for my sauce mad family. Not too sweet. Might try some fresh ginger next time but really easy to put together from the pantry.

    Delicious! Though I used rice wine vinegar and brown sugar because that’s what I had. I tossed it with shredded chicken and served over white rice. Yummy yummy

    Turned out so amazing! I added 1/4 cup of mirin and i can't stop eating the chicken off the pan before my rice is done

    I've tried this recipe as written, but I didn't like the strong cidar vinegar taste. Then I tried it again and followed one of the reviews and used balsamic vinegar, and the flavor was much better. But still, there's something missing that I can't put my finger to. It's not bad, but not great to be a keeper, so I will keep searching for the perfect teriyaki sauce.

    amazing and simple. I loved how easy it was to make the recipie smaller or bigger. I used balsalmic vinegar instead and loved the demention it brought.

    I made some substitutions with things i had in my cupboard and it still turned out pretty good. I used brown sugar, half the vinegar and orange juice to replace the remaining of the vinegar. i didnt have ginger so I used a bit of lime juice.
