Guy Kawasaki’s Famous Teriyaki Sauce

serves 8

  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 1 cup of soy sauce
  • 1/2 orange
  • 2 jalapeno peppers - seeds removed
  • 5 green onion - chopped
  • 1/3 cup of ginger (approx ½ hand-size or so) - peeled and chopped

Blend everything in a blender/food processor.

Puree until smooth.

This recipe will make 3 cups of sauce which is enough to marinate 2 and 1/2 pounds of chicken or tri-tip steak.


To marinate chicken or steak, place it in a glass bowl or plastic bag. Cover with the marinade and refrigerate for up to 24 hours.

Remove the chicken or steak from the marinade and pat dry. You can cook the chicken or steak on an outdoor barbeque or on a grill pan on the stovetop.

Put the remaining marinade in a medium size pan and boil for 15 minutes. (If the marinade gets too thick, add 2-3 Tablespoons of water and continue boiling.)

Strain the marinade through a fine sieve and drizzle on top of cooked chicken or steak.

Hey Steve!

That’s a heck of one load of sucrose, Guy. I thought you’d be more of a fructose kind-a-Guy.

Thanks for being there in the dark days.

Kathy Maister said:

I have no doubt, all that sugar is what keeps Guy so sweet!

Gary said:

Kathy Maister said:

joni said:

That looks awesome! By the way, i’m here from the philippines and i have never seen teriyaki sauce with that color! what i usually see are reddish brown in color. Can you please shed some light into this? Love your videos! its really educational!

Kathy Maister said:

Hi Joni,
The blender whips air into the sauce which initially gives it a lighter color. Scroll through this post for a good look at what the sauce looks like several hours after it has been blended.
