This homemade teriyaki will be a big hit in your home.

Homemade Teriyaki Sauce
Yep, because this teriyaki sauce is splendid and surprisingly easy to put together in just a few minutes. I make this sauce very often. Have you made teriyaki from scratch before? Did you know that you can do that?
I don’t always serve it with meatballs though. Chicken also is a great match for this sticky sweet sauce. A bunch of teriyaki pulled chicken, fresh homemade flour tortillas and a zingy cilantro and lime juice salad make fabulous wraps with an interesting Asian twist!
Or sprinkle it on top of an Asian noodle stir fry. Excellent plate of food.
So do throw out that bottled teriyaki sauce from the supermarket and make your own tacky sauce from scratch from now on. You will be so thrilled!
Oh hey, you can also serve this meatball treat as an appetizer bite by the way! I love meatballs as an appetizer. They always look so appetizing, and meatballs are always popular. Meatball fan? Then also take a look at my oven baked lamb and feta cheese meatball appetizers!
In the meantime, ditch that bottled teriyaki sauce and make your own from scratch from now on, you will be thrilled!
Ditch that bottled teriyaki sauce and make your own from scratch!
- 12 raw meatballs
- 1 tsp garlic paste
- 1 tbsp tomato ketchup
- 4 tbsp oyster sauce
- 2 tbsp soy sauce
- ½ cup beef stock (120 ml), warm
- 1 tsp worcester sauce
- 2 tbsp vegetable oil
- 1 tsp sesame seeds
- 1 tsp fresh chives or spring onion, chopped
1) Pour the vegetable oil in a large non-stick pan and place it over medium-high heat until hot. Then add the meatballs.
2) Pan fry the meatballs for about 10 to 12 minutes until nicely browned on all sides and cooked through.
3) Then remove the cooked meatballs from the pan and place them on a clean plate. Cover with a piece of tinfoil to keep them warm. Add the tomato ketchup and garlic paste to the same pan you baked the meatballs in (don’t wipe it clean).
4) Stir and bring the garlic to a little sizzle. Then add the soy sauce, worcester sauce and oyster sauce.
5) Stir again and cook for a minute. Then add the warm beef stock. Bring it to a light simmer and let the teriyaki sauce reduce by almost half. Then add the cooked meatballs back to the pan.
6) Stir, cover the pan and turn the very low. Simmer the meatballs in the teriyaki sauce for another 5 minutes until they are warmed through. Then divide the meatballs over deep plates and drizzle with the teriyaki sauce. Sprinkle with the chopped chives and sesame seeds. Serve hot with boiled rice and steamed broccoli.
