Teriyaki Tofu

Teriyaki is a cooking technique used in Japan in which foods are broiled or grilled in a sweet soy sauce marinade (tare in Japanese).
Since I had the ingredients ready for the making of the sauce, I gave it a try and I was pleasantly surprised with the result. I used it for marinating and broiling my tofu that had been asking to be used for the past couple of weeks...

I also made some sushi rice and hoisin stir-fried cabbage and carrots to go with it, and it surely went well. Everything was on the sweeter side though, to which my husband turned the nose  a bit, but the rest of us ( ME) loved it!

Here is how I made my sauce: 


  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup mirin (sweet rice wine)
  • 2 Tbsp sugar
  1. Combine all ingredients in a saucepan. Stir the mixture well. 
  2. Put it on medium heat and bring to a boil. 
  3. Turn down the heat to low and simmer for a couple minutes. 
  4. Stop the heat and cool the mixture. 
  5. Store the sauce in a clean bottle in the refrigerator.
