Dad's Teriyaki Marinade
I know this sounds simple, but how many times have you had all too sticky and sickly sweet teriyaki?? This is perfect every time, and is great on ANYTHING. We've had it on fish, steak, chicken (especially thighs) and I'm sure it'd be a great marinade for veggies too.
7 parts soy sauce (not low salt)
7 parts mirin
7 parts sake
1 part sugar
thinly sliced garlic
Put everything into a sauce pan and heat until the sugar dissolves and you can smell the garlic. Take off of the stove and let it seep for at least 20 minutes.
If you want to thicken this as a sauce, simply put the marinade in a pot and heat over medium-high heat until it reduces to the desired consistency.
Slather over everything and enjoy!
