15 min homemade soy sauce substitute
Soy sauce can make or break a recipe. If you don’t have any on hand, it can be disappointing, but fortunately, this one is very delicious.
Servings 1 cup
- 4 tbsp. beef bouillon
- 2 tsp. dark molasses
- 4 tsp. Balsamic vinegar
- 1 pinch white pepper
- ½ tsp. ground ginger
- 1 ½ cups water
- 1 pinch garlic powder
Mix all ingredients together in a saucepan.
Stir them together over medium heat. Let the mixture come to a boil.
Let it boil until it's reduced to one cup. This should be achieved after about 15 minutes.
This recipe will yield one cup or 8 ounces of soy sauce. The smaller bottles you buy at a grocery store are typically 5 oz so this will give you plenty to use in your recipes and for your condiment needs.
In terms of cost, the entire recipe will cost about 90 cents which is a lot cheaper than any bottle of decent soy sauce you can buy in the market. Considering you’ll have plenty of leftover ingredients to use in other recipes, you will come out ahead by a long shot.
