Add some tantalizing flavor to all of your favorite meals by drizzling this keto teriyaki sauce on them. It tastes great added to vegetables, cauliflower rice, fish, chicken, pork, and beef. My sugar free teriyaki sauce is made with a combination of soy sauce, brown sugar sweetener, garlic, ginger, and apple cider vinegar. Plus, it comes together in under 5 minutes.
As long as I can remember, I have loved teriyaki anything. It’s one of those flavors that is stimulating, sophisticated, and tangy all at the same time. Many store-bought versions of teriyaki sauce are loaded with sugar and ingredients that are high in carbs. That’s why it was important for me to develop a sugar free teriyaki sauce that tasted great and wasn’t filled with sugar. Success making the sauce has enhanced the flavor of many of our meals.
I love adding it to a batch of roasted veggies or drizzle it on cooked fish, but my favorite is sauteeing it in a pan with chicken thighs. You can bring all the flavors and textures of your favorite restaurant-style stir fry right into your kitchen.

Do I Have To Cook The Keto Teriyaki Sauce?
No, you don’t need to cook it at all. You can simply add the ingredients together and start using it right away. Most recipes that call for teriyaki sauce will ask for the sauce to be warmed up, but you don’t need to cook it before adding it to your recipe.
How Long Does Sugar Free Teriyaki Sauce Last?
On average, this homemade teriyaki sauce will last 4-5 days in the fridge. Keep it in an airtight container or jar. Due to the fact that it’s not loaded with preservatives like something you would pick up that’s pre-packaged, it goes bad quicker than store-bought.
What Can I Use If I Don’t Have Soy Sauce?
You can swap the soy sauce for coconut aminos. It’s a terrific substitute and gives you a salty flavor that’s similar to soy sauce. It’s gluten free, grain free, and low carb as well, so you might want to keep some around for other dishes as well.
Can Keto Teriyaki Sauce Be Used As A Marinade?
Yes, absolutely, you can use this sugar free teriyaki sauce as a marinade. Soak your meat in the sauce for at least 30 minutes before cooking to use it as a marinade. Then grill or saute on the stove. It tastes fabulous as a marinade and will help tenderize many different kinds of meats. Plus, marinating is a great way to give meals a punch of flavor.
Is Teriyaki Sauce Spicy?
No, this teriyaki sauce isn’t spicy. It has a bold, sweet, and smokey flavor, but it’s not spicy. If you want to add some heat to it, you can always add in some crushed red pepper flakes or even a dash or two of cayenne pepper.
Can You Freeze Teriyaki Sauce?
Yes, I recommend if you can’t use all the sauce within 5 days to go ahead and freeze it. It’s best if you pour it into a freezer-safe bag and lay it out flat. Once frozen, you can move the bag to take up less space in your freezer. To defrost the sauce, you can set it on the countertop until it’s thawed or put it in the refrigerator overnight. It will thaw out pretty quickly.
- 3/4 cup soy sauce or coconut aminos
- 1/4 cup brown sugar substitute such as Golden Lakanto
- 1 tbsp garlic chopped

- 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
- Stir together all the ingredients.
