Recipe Tips

-Sake is the classic ingredient for teriyaki, although dry white vermouth is an excellent substitute. Alternatively dry white cooking wine or non-alcoholic wine will work.

-Mirin is worth buying for amazing teriyaki flavor, and you can get it online or in most larger supermarkets next to other Asian sauces.
