This soy-free, Keto Teriyaki Sauce is sweet, spicy, sticky, and uses collagen-rich bone broth! Great for a healthy stir-fry, dipping sauce, or marinate.

I just love everything about this sauce! It’s super versatile (use it for stir-fries, glazes, marinates, or as a dipping sauce), keto, soy-free, and is filled with healthy collagen! Not to mention the amazing umami flavor. Yum, yum, yum!

Is this teriyaki sauce really keto-friendly?

It sure is! Unlike other recipes and store-bought sauces, this Keto Teriyaki Sauce is made without wheat, cornstarch, or any added sugar! Instead, we will be thickening our keto sauce with xanthan gum and sweeten it with erythritol. BUT that’s not all. This teriyaki sauce is also SOY FREE!

Instead of soy sauce, I use coconut aminos. I’m not a big fan of soy, as it is a phytoestrogen and can affect our hormonal system. Coconut aminos is made from the fermented sap of coconut palm and tastes very similar to soy sauce! Best yet, it is wheat-free and soy-free!

Tips for making a sticky, flavorful teriyaki sauce!

Bone broth. Chicken bone broth not only gives this sauce an amazing flavor, it will also provide your body with vitamins and collagen! For this recipe, you will need 1/2 cup of bone broth. I prefer using homemade chicken bone broth, but you can also use store-bought bone broth. Kettle and Fire makes a high-quality chicken bone broth.

I usually make homemade chicken broth after making a roast chicken. It is pretty simple to make: Add your chicken carcass (with the cartilage, bits and pieces of skin and meat, and the neck) to a slow cooker or large pot, cover completely with water, add salt (and any other spices you like), and 1-2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar. Bring to boil and then simmer for 24-48 hours. Strain and done!

Coconut aminos. Instead of soy sauce, we will be using coconut aminos. This umami-rich liquid is soy-free and wheat-free. Look in the health/gluten-free/keto section of your grocery-store to find a bottle of this dark sauce. I like this organic brand.

Xanthan gum. Teriyaki sauce is usually thickened with cornstarch, but not our low-carb version! Instead, we use a small amount (1/4 teaspoon) of keto-friendly xanthan gum.

Spices. Fresh ginger, garlic, and red pepper flakes will give our sticky sauce a complex and spicy flavor that you won’t be able to resist.

Serving suggestions. There is so much you can do with this sauce. Add it to your stir-fry or use it as a dipping sauce for your chicken wings! Or how about, brush it on your salmon as a glaze? Store it in an air-tight container (I use a small glass jar) in the fridge for up to 1 week.

Add flavor to your low-carb dishes with this Keto Teriyaki Sauce!
