Can I Make 2-Ingredient Teriyaki Sauce?
This was actually from the Tasty YouTube video "4 Easy 3-Ingredient Dinners" for Teriyaki Chicken -- the 3 ingredients being chicken, soy sauce and brown sugar. So the Teriyaki sauce only has 2 ingredients. I wanted to use it for shrimp.
In the video, they use 1 cup of soy sauce to 1/2 cup of brown sugar. I was just making a small amount, but I kept the 2:1 ratio of soy sauce to brown sugar.
In the video, they also make the sauce on the stove and turn it down, which thickens it. I just tried microwaving it for 45 seconds or so to dissolve the brown sugar.
RESULT: Success! :)
We are good at this! It would have been thicker & the consistency of Teriyaki sauce if I had cooked it on the stove, but it tasted pretty good just microwaving it. If you're looking for a quick fix for Teriyaki Sauce and don't have any around, it's really easy to microwave it or make it on the stove.
Give it a try! We are good at this!
