Teriyaki is one of my preferred sauces in Japanese cuisine because I like that combination of sweet and salty that seems to make anything taste good. From hamburger steak, meatballs, seafood, grilled chicken to beef rolls, this recipe for home-made teriyaki sauce simply works with all. Why buy bottled ones when you can easily make it at home?
