Mirin, a rice wine with a low alcohol content, is the key ingredient to this teriyaki sauce's authentic flavor. The wine's high sugar content allows it to reduce into a syrup glaze. Look for mirin in the Asian foods section of your local supermarket. Serve with Pineapple Salsa and precooked white rice.
