Looking for that Gluten Free Teriyaki Sauce? Use VH Soy Sauce with this recipe

So we all know how hard it is to find a gluten free soy sauce, so imagine how hard it is to find a gluten free Teriyaki sauce you like?

I have this great recipe from a recipe book called "The Chick Magnet Cookbook".  My brother got it from me when I was a bachelor living in Toronto.  I definitely impressed Amanda with a couple recipes out of this book, just ask her :-)

VH Soy Sauce - No wheat
read every label, every time

  • 1 cup soy sauce (find your favourite gluten free soy sauce, we use the VH brand, because as it stands right now, they do not add wheat to their brand.  We water down the VH soy sauce because it is strong)
  • 1 cup granulated sugar (we use 1/4 cup)
  • 4 inch piece of fresh ginger peeled and sliced thin
  • 3 cloves of garlic
  • 2 tables of apple juice (optional)
  1. In a small saucepan over medium heat, stir soy sauce and sugar together until sugar is disolved
  2. Add ginger, garlic, apple juice (optional) and bring to a boil.  reduce heat and simmer (sauce should be a barely bubbling) for about 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  3. Remove large pieces of ginger or garlic from sauce
We like to use this sauce as a 24 hr marinate for a steak.  We have also used it for teriyaki meatballs.

  1. hmm, any idea if VH prepared sauces containing soy sauce, contain their wheat free soy sauce? would make sense, but lots of things don't seem that simple,lol

  2. Some do and some don't. Just read the label, because if Soy Sauce is an ingredient in the VH sauce, then there will be brackets after it to say whats in it. Last we checked they had two versions of teriyaki sauce, and one had wheat and one did not.



  3. This is very similar to the marinade I use very often, minus the sugar. I stick of fresh ginger in the frezzer works great for grating into sauces/marinades.

    I have also recently started using a 50/50 split of soy sauce and BBQ sauce.
