We had a tough time trying to find the pineapple teriyaki sauce called for in this recipe... but it sounded so good, we just HAD to try it! What to do? Improvise! We had great success making our own by combining 1/3 traditional teriyaki sauce and 2 tablespoons of pineapple juice. Enjoy! Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
