Sugar Free Teriyaki Sauce

Sharing Is Caring

Have y’all started to notice that Asian food is a serious weakness of mine? I have always had a love affair with Asian food. Teriyaki chicken, pad Thai, hibachi. I love it all! Take-out and a good movie on Friday night’s are totally my jam!

This Sugar Free Teriyaki Sauce recipe came as a result of me desperately needing some take-out in my life. I used to make homemade teriyaki chicken bowls all the time (pre-keto) but it had both brown sugar AND honey in the sauce. Yikes!



I tweaked my old recipe to replicate the flavor and keep it low carb. You’ll notice this recipe calls for Sukrin Gold. While I am not a fan of “speciality” items or unnecessary ingredients, Sukrin Gold is a brown sugar alternative that is perfect in a multitude of recipes (cookies, pies, sauces, etc). It is made of erythritol but it does NOT have the “cooling effect” like many other products do. I ALWAYS have it on hand I my kitchen. And if you’ve been reading my blog for a while, you’ve seen it in a ton of my recipes.




One of my favorite, and easiest ways to use this sauce is in Teriyaki Chicken Bowls. Just make a batch of Cauliflower Fried Rice (without the pork), steam some broccoli, sautè some mushrooms, and you have a delicious bowl of fake out take out! You can even top it all off with some Sugar Free Yum Yum Sauce if you’re feeling a lil bit extra!

Next time you’re craving take-out, give this easy recipe a try!
