Five Favorite Soy Sauce Recipes   

To celebrate National Sauce Month, we’re sharing five of our all-time most searched soy sauce recipes. 

As America’s #1 Soy Sauce1 we’ve developed, sourced, and shared thousands of soy sauce recipes over the years.  

March is National Sauce month, and we’re celebrating by sharing five of our most searched soy sauce recipes. These are the tried-and-true favorites that our loyal fans count on for that signature Kikkoman umami magic. You’ll find everything from quick weeknight standbys to more unexpected ideas like chocolate chip cookies, and, of course, our famous turkey brine recipe.  

Soy Sauce Brined Pork Chops

In a marinade for meat, poultry and seafood, soy sauce does double duty as a seasoning and a brine that keeps the meat juicy and tender when it’s cooked. These popular pork chops have a sweet-savory flavor thanks to the combination of our Soy Sauce and our Kotteri® Mirin. They’re an easy dinnertime go-to. And if the weather’s not right for grilling, just fire up the broiler.


Grilled Smoked Soy Sauce Wings

Our most-wanted wings are marinated with soy sauce, honey, and garlic powder, then slowly smoked over hickory chips on the grill till they’re succulent, tender, and tastier than any wings you’ve ever tried.


Steamed Clams with Soy Sauce Butter

Soy sauce and butter are a classic combination that’s particularly tasty with seafood—like these fresh Manila clams, quickly steamed in a skillet with sake, scallions, and garlic, and finished with butter and our Less Sodium Soy Sauce. Serve lots of crusty bread on the side to sop up every last drop of the sauce.


Soy Sauce Brined and Glazed Turkey

This juicy turkey trick—an overnight soak in a simple brine made with Kikkoman® Soy Sauce—makes our most-searched list year after year. And here’s the amazing part: the brine doesn’t add a noticeable soy sauce flavor to your bird. It just makes it succulent, savory, and spectacularly golden brown.


Soy Sauce Chocolate Chip Cookies

It’s true! As so many of our faithful followers have discovered, a few tablespoons of soy sauce bring out the best in a batch of chocolate chip cookies, adding rich, golden-brown color, making the butter taste more buttery, and balancing the sweet caramel flavors with savory umami.
