Yakitori Sauce

Homemade Yakitori sauce, which I now suspect is pretty much the same as commercial teriyaki.  You will see the Yakitori grilling tomorrow.

    Lookiong forward to the cook.


    Here is a sauce I have evolved over the years and it keeps forever:

    Marinade, Teriyaki, Soy Sauce, #4, Richard Fl

    1/2 Gal. Soy Sauce, Get Kikkoman, others have too much salt
    2 Cups Oyster Sauce
    1/2 Cup Fish Sauce (optional)
    3 Cups Datu Puti, Spiced White vinegar, Surank Maasim, Phillipines
    1 1/4 Cups Chili Paste, Red  Hot, Korean
    1/3 Cup Sambal Oelek
    1 1/2 Cups Sweet/Sour Sauce -OR- Sweet Chilli Sauce, Thai
    1/2 Cup Pepper, Black, Ground
    1/2 Cup Sugar, Turbindo
    3/8 Cup Sesame Seeds, White
    3/8 Cup Garlic, Minced
    1/2 Cup Olive Oil
    1/4 Cup Ginger Oil
    3-4 Tbs Fine Chopped Fresh Ginger, I used microplane
    1 Lbs. Garlic Chives or Scallions, Sliced Thinly, add at end of cooking.
    3/4 Stick Butter, add at end of cooking (Optional)


    1. Mix all except garlic chives/scallions and butter, in a large heavy cooking pot. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer and cook. 2-4 hours, stirring occasionally. Goal is to reduce the volume by 30% apprx. Cool, Add garlic chives/scallions and butter.

    2. Keeps a long time in a container in refrigerator. Over a year. Great as a marinade, substitute for soy sauce, worchestire sauce, yakitori sauce or a dipping sauce for wontons, pot stickers.

    Yield: 5 Quarts+1 Cup

    Recipe Type: Marinade

    This will wake up your sinuses. For less heat adjust the hot ingredients. For a thicker sauce add some more sweet & sour or sugar.

  • In comparison the yakitori sauce was similar to teriyaki, but less sweet.
