The Professors Tangy Teriyaki Sauce Recipe

  • 3/4 cup sake
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup soy sauce
  • 1/3 cup white sugar
  • 2 tablespoons orange marmalade
  • 5 teaspoons rice vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoons sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/3 cup cold water
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  1. Stir sake and 1/4 cup white sugar together in a saucepan over medium heat; cook until sugar dissolves, about 5 minutes. Add soy sauce, 1/3 cup white sugar, orange marmalade, vinegar, garlic powder, sesame oil, ginger, cayenne pepper, and black pepper; stir to combine. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer until slightly reduced, 5 to 10 minutes.
