Teriyaki Sauce, Mirin/Sake

Lorry13 | Nov 11, 2012 08:04 PM

I want to make some beef teriyaki and the teriyaki sauce I'm interested in as follows:

Teriyaki Sauce (Tare)

2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons sake
2 tablespoon sugar
2 tablespoon mirin
1 teaspoon corn starch (mixed with 1 teaspoon water)

I already have some mirin that also says "sweetened sake". Can that be used as both the mirin and sake? I don't want to have to buy two new ingredients for one recipe.

Or does anyone else have a good Teriyaki sauce recipe that would be good on beef (probably some pan fried skirt steak). I previously made Teriyaki sauce for a baked teriyaki chicken and I felt the sauce was too sweet and instead of mirin/sake it used cider vinegar.

Want to stay up to date with this post?
