I think that teriyaki sauce was the first ingredient I was introduced to from the realm of Japanese cooking. It was a sort of love-hate relationship with the slightly sweet sauce at the time, but as my palate evolved, I realised I had a soft spot for the sauce and started experimenting with it more at home. It work really well in a kale and garlic stir-fry, and the classic salmon with a teriyaki glaze is a regular at ours.
The Mizkan Honteri Mirin seasoning which I've used in this teriyaki sauce recipe is absolutely brilliant. I normally do my stir-fries with store-bought teriyaki sauce but now I'm never going near those again. I had no clue making a teriyaki sauce was this easy, and it tastes much much nicer than the supermarket ones. The delicious mirin seasoning makes this even more delectable and from my other kitchen experiments, I've learnt that this seasoning can be used in place of sugar in many savoury dishes.
You could also try a pulled pork version of these burgers using pork that is slow-cooked in the teriyaki sauce and then piled into a burger bun. The recipe below is really easy and takes no time to prepare whatsoever. I have made the exact same recipe in kebab form and served as a starter with a spicy mayo dip, it got rave reviews. So keeping the basic ingredients the same you can change the meat to beef, turkey and chicken and get a fab dish out of it. The spice from the chillies works well with the sweetness from the teriyaki sauce, but as I have mentioned in the recipe, it is rather spicy, so reduce the chillies if you are not a fan of too much heat. Personally, I made a chilli mayo with sriracha sauce to go with the burger... yes, a spice-fest all the way.
