How to Make Paleo Teriyaki Sauce - soy-free, refined sugar-free and easy to make!

When I first started eating a paleolithic diet, I missed teriyaki sauce terribly. The store-bought version is packed with additives, corn syrup, and cane sugar, so I made it my mission to learn how to make a cleaner version.

While this sauce doesn’t taste exactly like store-bought teriyaki sauce, it certainly is close and it definitely does the trick! I enjoy using it to make chicken teriyaki, drizzle on roasted vegetables, or use it as a sauce for any of bowls. It adds marvelous flavor to a variety of dishes without much effort!

How to Make Paleo Teriyaki Sauce:

Simply add all of the ingredients to a blender and blend until well-combined.

Transfer the mixture to a saucepan and bring it to a full boil. Lower the heat to a gentle boil and continue cooking at a gentle boil for 10 to 15 minutes, or until the sauce has thickened. Note: the tapioca flour is optional, but it will help thicken the sauce.

Use this teriyaki sauce as a meat marinade, as a sauce for stir fry, or as a sauce to drizzle over your bowls.  Or make my Crock Pot Chicken Teriyaki with Broccoli Rabe.
