Today’s recipe is a yummy sauce that I served over the kalua pork I shared with you yesterday. I served the pork on a bed of rice with some stir fry vegetables and topped it off with this simple orange teriyaki sauce. It was my version of Rumbi’s rice bowl with kalua pork and orange sauce.
I loved the pop of orange flavor in this sauce. My family however, wished I just used regular teriyaki sauce instead. Oh well, at least I appreciated the nice citrus addition to this sauce. This sauce can also be used in place of the regular teriyaki sauce in the teriyaki chicken rice bowls or oven baked teriyaki chicken thighs.Print

- In a small saucepan, whisk together the cornstarch and cold water until smooth and no lumps. Then, whisk in the sugar, soy sauce, orange juice, vinegar, and garlic.
