Homemade Teriyaki Sauce

Homemade Teriyaki Sauce

Homemade Teriyaki Sauce - You can use this recipe to make stir- frys using boneless chicken, beef or pork.  When I make it, I save any left over sauce and use it to make a side dish later on in the week.  It's a fantastic way to make use of leftover vegetables and rice.
