Here is the best teriyaki marinade you will find. It is the best and I cut this recipe in half for the two of us.
1 c. sugar
1/2 c. water
1/4 c. vegetable oil
1 clove garlic, minced
sprinkle of ginger
1. Whisk it all up. Marinade meat.
To make a glaze, measure left-over marinade in glass measuring cup. Whatever amount it comes to, add half that amount of cold water to it. Add in some cornstarch, throw it in the microwave for a few minutes until it's thick, clear and medium brown.
