Soyaki Sauce

This Soyaki sauce may very well be my favorite product of Trader Joe's...and I am amused that they change their name to reflect an ethnic background (ie: Trader Ming's for Soyaki, Trader Jose for enchiladas, Trader Giotto's for italian items...). If you live in a place where there is no Trader Joe's (gasp!), a company called Soy Vay makes a similar product called Veri Veri Teriyaki (which I would guess TJ's copied but I prefer the Trader Joe's version anyway).

This sauce is a *huge* time saver because it has everything you would want in a stir-fry sauce, ready to use: soy sauce, garlic, sesame seeds, ginger, sesame oil, onions, and onion powder. It claims to be a great marinade for meat, poultry, fish, tofu and vegetables. Personally, I use it with tofu.

One of my easiest, healthiest and quickest meals: Tofu Steaks with Soyaki glaze over steamed brown rice with steamed green beans or broccoli.

* Press the excess water out of the tofu and cut block into smaller pieces.
* Grill tofu in pan over medium heat until lightly browned.
* Pour Soyaki sauce over tofu.
* Lower heat and let simmer till sauce thickens to a glaze.
* Serve with steamed brown rice and steamed vegetables.
