Another teriyaki sauce recipe mixes 1/4 cup soy sauce, 1 cup water, 1/2 teaspoon of ground ginger, 1/4 teaspoon of garlic powder, 5 tablespoons of packed brown sugar, and 1 to 2 tablespoons of honey in a saucepan over low heat. In a separate cup, mix 2 tablespoons of cornstarch and 1/4 cup cold water until the cornstarch fully dissolves. Add this cornstarch mixture to the saucepan, and heat it until the sauce reaches your desired thickness. This recipe should yield approximately 1 1/2 cups of teriyaki sauce. If the sauce is too thick, you can thin it out by adding a bit of water until it reaches your desired consistency.
