A versatile AIP Teriyaki Sauce

One of the best things about this AIP Teriyaki Sauce is its versatility. You can use it with literally any cooking method you’d like. Whip it up and pour it over some meat or veggies in a Crock Pot or Instant Pot for a hands-off AIP meal. In fact, I’ve already got a Crock Pot Chicken Teriyaki recipe you can use it in.

Or add it to your next stir-fry for a quick and easy AIP teriyaki stir-fry. You don’t even need a recipe. Just toss some sliced meat (or seafood) in a skillet (or wok), sauté until almost cooked through. Remove it from the pan and add some veggies. Sauté until tender-crisp. Then add the meat/seafood back to the skillet, add in your teriyaki sauce and let it simmer for a few minutes to thicken the sauce. AIP teriyaki stir-fry complete!

You can even use this AIP Teriyaki Sauce in the oven or on the grill! Just warm it in a saucepan until it thickens a bit, brush it on some chicken wings and throw them on the grill or in the oven and you have AIP teriyaki chicken wings! Or make some teriyaki beef skewers. Or teriyaki kebabs.

You could even just use this AIP Teriyaki Sauce as a scrumptious dipping sauce or burger topper! Just warm it up on the stovetop to thicken it up. Then start dipping all the things in it. How delicious would AIP chicken strips be dipped in teriyaki sauce? OK, what about an AIP teriyaki burger with grilled pineapple and coleslaw?

OK, I need to stop with all the AIP teriyaki ideas. My mouth is watering so much I’m pretty sure I’ll need a bib soon.

How to make AIP Teriyaki Sauce

You’ll only need five ingredients for this recipe, and if you have a well-stocked gluten-free, AIP or Paleo pantry, you’ve already got everything you need.

In a small bowl, combine the arrowroot starch and water and whisk until combined. Then add the garlic powderground gingerhoney and coconut aminos and whisk again, until well-combined.

If you’ll be using the sauce in a slow cooker, Instant Pot or stir fry, you can just use it as-is. It will thicken as it cooks.

If you’d like to use it as a dipping sauce, on the grill or in the oven, it will need to be cooked first. Just warm it in a small saucepan over medium heat until it starts to thicken. It only takes a few minutes.

If you have any leftovers, they’ll store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days. Reheat on low heat before serving. The sauce gets really thick and sticky in the fridge. Reheating it helps it become more saucy.

This AIP Teriyaki Sauce recipe makes enough sauce for about 1 lb of meat and/or vegetables. I like my teriyaki to be saucy, though, so if you’d like to spread it further, it can probably cover up to 2 lbs of meat/vegetables.
