Recipe type: Teriyaki Sauce
Cuisine: Asian
Serves: 1 cup
  • ½ cup Italian salad dressing
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • ¼ cup soy sauce
  1. Combine all three ingredients in a 1-quart saucepan and stir until well combined.
  2. Turn burner on to medium-high heat and bring mixture to a boil while stirring constantly.
  3. Once mixture is boiling, reduce heat to a simmer (about medium-low) and simmer for 5-7 minutes. Continue to stir constantly during this process.
  4. After 5 minutes, check the sauce's consistency by taking some on a spoon and blowing on it until it cools. You want the cooled sauce to have a consistency similar to maple syrup.
