Serving BBQ sauce with your grilled meat is something many of us do without thinking, and it is fair to say a lot of recipes for homemade BBQ sauce require a lot of ingredients and some are fiddly to make. A lot of us wonder what is the point in making BBQ sauce from scratch when it’s easier simply to buy it from the store. The following recipe only takes 2 minutes to make though and it adds an Asian twist to the flavor. You can serve this teriyaki BBQ sauce with any kind of grilled meat, fish, poultry or even vegetables, and because you can choose any BBQ sauce and any brand of teriyaki sauce, you are in full control of the flavor. Throw in some liquid smoke if you are not using a smoky BBQ sauce to make it even tastier.

Teriyaki sauce is a typical sauce used in Japanese cuisine, although the term ‘teriyaki’ actually refers to the cooking technique of grilling or broiling food and then brushing it with a soy sauce, sugar and mirin (rice wine) mixture. Perhaps you have enjoyed teriyaki chicken or beef in your local Japanese restaurant. In Japan, it is usually fish used in teriyaki instead of meat. Teriyaki sauce is usually sweet, although there are also spicy varieties. Sugar is usually used to sweeten teriyaki sauce but pineapple juice can be used to make a low-carb version. The bromelain enzymes in pineapple can help to tenderize meat, another benefit to using a pineapple juice-based teriyaki sauce.

How to Use This Sauce

You can use this teriyaki BBQ sauce as a basting sauce or even a marinade. You can also serve it alongside your grilled food to add some Asian flair to the plate. Because BBQ sauce and teriyaki sauce vary in flavor, you might like to tweak the recipe a little depending on the resulting flavor you get when combining the ingredients. For example, if you are using a sweet BBQ sauce you might want to add some salt or another savory ingredient to the recipe, since teriyaki sauce can be very sweet, and you might end up with something way sweeter than you wanted. You can also adjust the amounts, using perhaps 3 parts BBQ sauce and 1 part teriyaki sauce. If you are using this sauce to marinate poultry, either discard it after marinating or boil it for 5 minutes before serving on the side, to kill any bacteria that might have transferred over from the raw chicken.

As BBQ sauce recipes go, this has to be one of the simplest there is. All you need to do is mix 2 ingredients together and you will be rewarded with a sweet sauce which pairs well with all kinds of grilled proteins. You could serve it with beef, pork or chicken, or even try it with shrimp or crab if you are grilling seafood. This sauce can also be served with fried or baked meats, and it will keep for a few weeks in the refrigerator. Try this with your protein of choice, along with a side dish of noodles or even egg fried rice if you want to add more Asian components to your dinner, or simply with your favorite classic sides.
