Recipe: Reduced Sugar Terryaki Sauce

I don't know about you guys, but one thing I loved preop was terryaki... I've not really tried much of anything like that since surgery due to worries of dumping from a sweet sauce. A friend shared a homemade terryaki sauce recipe and I modified it a bit to keep the sweet, but use less real sugar. Here's what I tried:


REDUCED SUGAR TERRYAKI SAUCE
INGREDIENTS:

1/4 cup soy sauce
1 cup water
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1/2 tsp garlic powder
2 1/2 tbsp packed brown sugar
2 1/2 tbsp Splenda granulated
2 tbsp honey or molasses
2 tbsp corn starch
1/4 cup water

DIRECTIONS:
Mix first 7 ingredients in a small saucepan. Heat on low to medium heat. Mix the corn starch and 1/4 cup water together till corn starch is all dissolved. Add to saucepan mixture and stir well. Simmer, stirring often, till sauce reaches the thickness you want.

Note: To use this sauce as a marinade, add 1/4 cup more water. Also, if you like your sauce a bit less sweet, you can cut back on the honey/molasses amount to about 1 tbsp.

I've got this in the crockpot now with some beef, onions, and minced garlic... We'll see how it turns out!

Thanks for the recipe my BF loves him some Terriyaki and now I can enjoy it with him. You ever tried using the Splenda Brown Sugar blend?
