Keto Teriyaki Sauce


Teriyaki Sauce is actually one of the 1st ‘Asian’ sauces we ever keto-fied and it was part of our Teriyaki Chicken recipe release, which feels like ages ago! 

And even though we did technical release this recipe already, we thought we’d do another recipe write-up with its own dedicated section given how popular this sauce is around the world!  So here it is, LCA’s very own low-carb/keto Teriyaki Sauce!

Our version only consists of 4 ingredients and can be made within 10 minutes in any kitchen!  Simple, easy and delicious – just the way we like to do it here at LCA! 

You can use Teriyaki Sauce on anything ranging from beef, chicken, cauliflower rice, vegetables, but just make sure you don’t overdo it as the carbs can add up on you!

For this version of our recipe, we are going to recommend using Xanthan Gum to thicken up the sauce.  Of course, you can opt not to use it, but the sauce will be runny which can slightly affect the overall taste profile.

The sauce tastes just like your traditional Teriyaki Sauce but with only ~1g net carb per tbsp, compare that with the store bought one that has over 10g net carb per tbsp!

The special ingredients you will need to make this sauce are Japanese sake, Swerve/Monkfruit, Soy Sauce and Xanthan Gum (to thicken the sauce).  Here is the sake we normally use for reference.  You can purchase everything else on Amazon or a combination of local Asian and specialty supermarkets.

Now, let’s get started!

2) In a Teflon sauce pan, add Japanese Sake, Swerve/Monkfruit, Soy Sauce, Xanthan Gum and bring to boil.  Once boiling, reduce heat to med-low heat and let it cook for 2 minutes while continuously mixing to ensure Xanthan Gum dissolves.  Note – you can add another 1/8 tsp of Xanthan Gum if you prefer a thicker sauce, but we wouldn’t recommend anything more otherwise the sauce will start become jelly-like.
