This sugar free teriyaki sauce is a simple and fast way to curb the hibachi craving on your ketogenic diet. Ready in just 10 minutes. Perfect for keto chicken teriyaki, beef, hibachi vegetables, or cauliflower rice!

Have y’all caught on that Asian cuisine is a serious weakness of mine? Mexican will always reign number one but Japanese comes in at a very close second. Teriyaki chicken, pad Thai, hibachi..I love it all! 

This sugar free teriyaki sauce recipe came up as a result of me desperately needing some hibachi food in my life. When I started keto in 2017, it was really helpful for me to find ways to replicate some of my favorite foods. Having easy but delicious keto dupes really helped me stay on track with my diet and my goals.

I used to make homemade teriyaki chicken bowls all the time but the recipe I used had both brown sugar and honey in the sauce. Yikes! Talk about an insulin spike!

That obviously wasn’t going to work but, thankfully, teriyaki sauce doesn’t take rocket science. I tweaked my old recipe to replicate the flavor but keep it low carb and sugar free.

substituting ingredients

If you’re new to the ketogenic diet or low carb cooking, some of these ingredients might seem foreign to you. Have you ever heard of arrowroot powder or brown sugar erythritol? Probably not.

Arrowroot powder is just like cornstarch except that it is grain free and gluten free. You can use it to thicken sauces, jams, etc. And you can even whisk it will a little water to make a low carb slurry, just like we do in this sugar free teriyaki recipe.

If you don’t have arrowroot powder, or don’t think you’ll ever use it again (but you will because it’s super common in low carb cooking), you can substitute it with xanthan gum. Simply omit the water and start with about 1/2 teaspoon of xanthan gum in place of the slurry.

This recipe also uses brown sugar erythritol in the keto teriyaki sauce. I personally think Sukrin Gold has the richest molasses flavor (without the molasses) of all the brown sugar substitutes out there. You’ll find I use it in several recipes as you browse the blog!

Of course, if you’re more of a monkfruit fan, then the Lakanto Golden would be a good alternative! Monkfruit is a sweetener that is not a sugar alcohol and it is quickly becoming one of my favorite sweeteners of any of the keto sweetener options.

meal ideas for sugar free teriyaki sauce

 

One of my favorite, and easiest ways to use this keto teriyaki sauce is in low carb teriyaki chicken bowls. I love to whip up a batch of my fried cauliflower rice, omitting the pork, and steam some broccoli.

I’ll drizzle a little of the sugar free teriyaki sauce on top, sometimes I even add a little bit of my sugar free yum yum sauce, and we have a family friendly keto hibachi dinner!

If I have them on hand, sometimes I even sauté some carrots, zucchini, and onion just like the chefs at our favorite hibachi grill! 

 

 

 

One other way you could use this sugar free teriyaki sauce is in teriyaki beef. Mix the sauce ingredients, without the slurry, and use it to marinade some stir fry beef. Fry your beef in a hot skillet, sauté the same veggies I just mentioned, and use the reserved marinade to make your sauce! 

That’s two easy meals you can get out of this one easy keto Japanese recipe! I think the cool kids call that winning!
