Substitution
Stir-fry sauce can be substituted for the teriyaki baste and glaze. Choose a stir-fry sauce that has a syrup-like, not watery, consistency so it's similar to the teriyaki baste and glaze. If you can't find the sesame oat bran sticks, croutons flavored with onion and garlic can be substituted.
Did You Know?
Teriyaki baste and glaze has a thick, syrup-like consistency and shouldn't be confused with teriyaki marinade or sauce, which is more watery. Look for this tasty and versatile product in the Asian foods aisle.
