Today’s recipe is an easy one when you are looking for a tasty meat marinade to put together quickly. 

It is really easy to put together a teriyaki beef marinade with just a few ingredients that you likely have in your pantry. This marinade works for many cuts of beef and you can change up the flavor by just substituting a few ingredients. 

The basic recipe calls for soy sauce, ginger, and garlic. Then by adding a few more ingredients you can change up the marinade profile. It is best to marinate meat a few hours or a day before for the best results.

I suggest making it in a large mason jar or a bowl with a spout for easy pouring.

What is Teriyaki Sauce Made of?

For this homemade teriyaki sauce marinade, the main ingredients are:

Soy Sauce –Soy sauce makes a wonderful base for any marinate. I prefer low sodium because you can always add salt. 

Ginger – While you can use fresh ginger for this recipe, I typically use ground ginger from my spice rack. It adds wonderful flavor and aroma.

Garlic– Most marinades have garlic and I love using the minced garlic in a jar. I keep it in my refrigerator and it saves time not having to peel and crush the garlic. The tubed garlic works well too.
