How do I thicken my teriyaki sauce?

If you want your teriyaki sauce to be thicker, simply add a little more cornstarch slurry. Add 1tsp at a time of cornstarch mixed with cold water and give it a minute to thicken the sauce. The sauce will also thicken once it cools, so be careful not to overdo it. You can find a link to my Homemade Vegan Cornstarch Slurry Recipe here.
