Easy Thick Teriyaki Sauce Recipe

When I grill, I like basting with thick sauces; I want the sauce to coat the meat and not run off into the flames. However, when it comes to a thick teriyaki sauce, I find it easy to make my own; that way, I can infuse it with whatever flavors I want and get it as thick as I like. All it takes is a pan and a little time.

In a saucepan, heat the soy sauce, water, honey, and sugar, add the ginger, and orange rind, then bring it to a simmer. In 1/4 cup of water, dissolve the corn starch and add it to the pot. Once everything is added, simmer until it reaches the thickness you desire. Remove it from the heat and retrieve and discard the orange rind as it cools. Your thick teriyaki sauce is ready.
