Oriential Essentials: The Ultimate Teriyaki Sauce

Andy Anderson !


If you have not figured it out yet, I like to make as many things from scratch as possible; especially, sauces, and soup bases. There are several reasons:
1. They are better for you.
2. They do not contain any unwanted chemical preservatives.
3. You can adjust them to suit your own tastes.

I love drizzling this sauce over a big bowl of ramen noodles.

So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.
