Pork Teriyaki


Pork Teriyaki………………….My pork teriyaki is different from other teriyaki dishes. Do you know why? I usually cook the teriyaki sauce separate. By this means, I can control and cook variety of teriyaki dishes. Like when we had a 3 days teriyaki meal at home. I kept the sauce at fridge and cook grilled beef or chicken teriyaki the following day…………………Did you know that Kikkoman’s has little calories compared to other soy sauce, and of those, none come from fat or carbohydrates. There is no cholesterol in this soy sauce. This soy sauce is used primarily in Asian dishes. It can be used as a marinade or as a complimentary condiment to a dish. Most people use it as an additional seasoning to Asian side dishes such as japanese sushi and chinese cuisines. On meat as well; primarily it is used on pork, beef or chicken. It adds a salty flavor to food and only a small quantity impacts a dish…..
