The sweet-savory flavor of teriyaki sauce is a centuries-old mixture of soy sauce and mirin (sweet cooking wine). Over time, Japanese Americans added ginger, brown sugar, pineapple juice, and green onions, elements of the bottled teriyaki sauce Americans know today.

How to Make It

Step 1

Cook pasta according to package directions, omitting salt and fat. Drain, reserving 1/4 cup pasta water; keep warm.

Step 2

Remove green tops from green onions; thinly slice, and set aside. Mince white portions of green onions; set aside.

Step 3

Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add minced green onions, bell pepper, pork, and mushrooms; sauté 3 minutes or until pork is browned. Combine reserved 1/4 cup pasta water, teriyaki sauce, and chili garlic sauce in a small bowl, stirring with a whisk. Add pasta and teriyaki sauce mixture to pan; toss well to coat. Stir in sliced green onion tops.
