    Used rice vinegar instead of apple cider and doubled the garlic. Pretty good but I will make with ginger paste next time and omit the pepper.

    This sauce is delicious! It’s plenty thick and tastes exactly like you’d want good restaurant teriyaki to taste. Sweet/salty balance can be easily adjusted.

    I'm not sure where I went wrong, but this came out S-A-L-T-Y. Next time I will try low sodium soy and see if that helps.

    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.

    super good. kinda scary when you realize how much sugar goes into teryaki....

    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! I used half the sugar and vinegar, added orange, and added sprinkle of Montreal steak seasoning.
