Pineapple Teriyaki Sauce

What an insane week I had last week. 
Not only did I have the flu, 
but just as I was feeling better 
I broke out in an allergic reaction which sent me to the ER. 
Let me just tell lips looked like lip injections gone bad! 
I even got laughed at. 
It was kind of funny looking I have to admit.
I may have also laughed at the sight of myself once I got passed the itching.
So after a ton of steroids through an IV today I am finally better.
What a debacle. She-sh!
Now onto this amazing sauce. 
This is my go to Asian sauce for all my chicken and beef dishes I make.
Pineapple just totally goes with teriyaki sauce.
It must be the sweet and salty thing.
I will be posting my chicken dish this week to match them up.
Happy Monday!

3/4 cup pineapple juice
2 tablespoons teriyaki sauce
1 teaspoon soy sauce
1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
4 slices canned pineapple in juice, chopped
1/4 cup white sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar 
1 1/2 tablespoons garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1/2 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
1/2 teaspoon grated orange zest 
1/4 cup water
1/2 teaspoon cornstarch

Combine the pineapple juice, teriyaki sauce, soy sauce, lemon juice, pineapple, sugars, garlic powder, onion powder, red pepper flakes, ginger and orange zests in a saucepan over medium heat; cook until the liquid has reduced to a syrup, about 5 minutes. In a seperate bowl, combine water and cornstarch. Stir the water and cornstarch mixture into the sauce and continue cooking until the mixture thickens again. Remove from heat and serve immediately. If mixture is to thick you can thin it with a teaspoon of water or two.

  1. Hi, this recipe sounds so good and looks really delicious. I like to try new recipes from other people. I'm not really good at creating them. Sorry you were sick and hope you are well now. I'm sure going to try this recipe soon.
    Thank you
