How to Make Sugar-Free Teriyaki Sauce at Home


There are different kinds of ways in the world to cook food but the way that attracted me the most is the Japanese Teriyaki cooking style. Basically Teriyaki is derived from two Japanese words- Teri means the shine of the food and yaki means the method of grilling.

So Teriyaki style is basically a cooking method that actually describes boiled, grilled or pan-fried food. So teriyaki is just a style of cooking and the sauce that I am going to tell you today is used in this method. The name of the sauce is Teriyaki Sauce.
