Teriyaki (Beef, Chicken, or Pork)

The term teriyaki is Japanese and refers to a cooking technique. Foods are given a glaze of soy sauce, mirin, and sugar, and then broiled or grilled. Originating in 1600s Japan, fish is the most common teriyaki dish. In the US, teriyaki is a popular option in Japanese restaurants and a variety of meats are used. Teriyaki sauce, as distinguished from the cooking style, may have originated in the US when Japanese immigrants settled in Hawaii. They created a marinade using pineapple, a popular flavoring for all sorts of recipes.
