  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1/4 cup onion minced
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 Tablespoon ginger fresh ground
  • 1 20 oz can crushed pineapple in heavy syrup
  • 1 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup teriyaki sauce
  • 1/4 cup molasses
  • 1/4 cup rice wine vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce


  • In a medium saucepan, heat sesame oil over medium heat. Add the onions, garlic, and ginger to the oil and cook, stirring frequently, for 5-7 minutes, or until vegetables are soft and aromatic.
  • Add the remainder of the sauce ingredients to the pan and stir to combine. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for 20 minutes.
  • Remove from the heat and allow to cool slightly before transferring to a blender. Cover with a lid and blend until the sauce is smooth.
  • Transfer to a lidded jar and refrigerate. Sauce tastes best after it has settled in the fridge for 24 hours (but is still great fresh). Will keep in the fridge for 1-2 weeks after opening.
