how to make homemade soy sauce recipe | Family Cuisine

Homemade soy sauce is a great way to make your own condiments. There are many variations of this recipe, but the basic ingredients are soybeans, salt, and water.

Looking to expand your homemade condiments into a gluten free soy sauce? Making this homemade Soy Sauce recipe is no harder than making your own ketchup. It uses simple, everyday ingredients and tastes delicious!

Homemade Soy Sauce Recipe

Homemade Soy Sauce Recipe

I’ve been wanting to make my own homemade soy sauce for a long time but put it off because it seemed so much more intimidating than Homemade Ketchup or even Homemade BBQ Sauce. Now that we’ve been making it for several months I have no idea why I was so scared of it in the first place. It’s SO easy and uses simple ingredients that you most likely already have in your pantry.

I will start by saying this isn’t traditional soy sauce. It doesn’t have soy, it doesn’t have wheat, and it’s not fermented. But it does make a wonderful, frugal substitution when you are trying to make your own foods AND you have the benefit of knowing exactly what’s in it. Plus this is a gluten free soy sauce recipe and gluten free soy sauce from the store is SO expensive!

Gluten Free Soy Sauce Recipe

What You Need:

  • 1 cup Beef Broth (can be homemade)
  • 1/4 cup Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon Blackstrap Molasses
  • 1/2 teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon Ground Ginger
  • 1 teaspoon Salt

Making Homemade Soy Sauce

In a saucepan, combine the beef broth, cider vinegar, and molasses.

Soy Sauce Spices

Add in the garlic, ginger, and salt. Mix well.

Simmering Soy Sauce

Let the entire mixture simmer on the stovetop over a medium-low heat for about 10 to 15 minutes or until the sauce begins to reduce. The best flavor is when you’ve let it reduce to about half of it’s original volume.

Store the finished sauce in an air-tight container (I like to use a glass jar with a plastic lid) in the fridge until ready to use. You may need to shake slightly before use. For most recipes, you can use this as a 1:1 replacement for soy sauce.

Homemade Teriyaki Sauce Recipe

Homemade Teriyaki Sauce with Homemade Soy Sauce

When I make my homemade Soy Sauce recipe, I like to take it a bit further and use half of it to make a homemade Teriyaki sauce as well. This is so easy and works perfectly for stir-fry.

What You Need:

  • 1/2 cup Homemade Soy Sauce
  • 2 tablespoons Honey
  • 1/4 cup Water
  • 2 teaspoons Arrowroot Powder or Cornstarch

In a small saucepan, combine the soy sauce, honey, and water. Heat until the mixture is simmering. Sprinkle in the arrowroot powder and use a whisk to combine until well mixed. Let the mixture simmer for another minute or two to thicken. Use right away in a dish or stir-fry or place in an air-tight container to save for later.

Both the Homemade Soy Sauce Recipe and the Homemade Teriyaki Sauce recipe will last for a week in the fridge.

My favorite thing to do with these sauces is to make the homemade soy sauce recipe first and then the homemade teriyaki sauce recipe. Then I place the rest of the soy sauce in the fridge to use for the rest of the week and use the teriyaki sauce for supper the night that I make it.
