Teriyaki Sauce Recipe?

brewinphan | Oct 1, 200701:52 PM     16

I've been looking for a good teriyaki sauce recipe for what seems like ages. I hate to admit it, but I love the teriyaki sauce that I get from the local cheap japanese bento box places in LA. I've never found a store-bought brand that doesn't taste like jazzed up soy sauce. I was wondering if anyone has a good recipe for homemade teriyaki sauce. In my mind, the sauce is pretty sweet, with not much soy sauce taste ( I know it's hard since soy sauce is a main ingredient). I guess if anyone needs a frame of reference, I like the teriyaki sauce from places like Sweet Home Grill or New Japan on Santa Monica, or most of the Hawaiian places like Back Home in Lahaina, Rutts Inn, Shakas. Don't like the teriyaki sauce at L&L as much. I can't figure out what the secret ingredient to homemade sauce is! Pineapple juice? Vinegar? If I could get a good recipe, I'd probably make a few gallons at a time and use it on everything. Thanks for the help!
