Stir Fry Sauce



I purchased a bag of stir fry veggies that claimed to already have the sauce in the bag of course just my luck as I start to make dinner I realized the packs of sauce are missing from the bag! Ugh! A meal that was purchased to be quick and easy didn’t turn out to be so quick and easy. At the last minute I was scrambling for a stir fry sauce recipe.

I came across this recipe and I am sure happy I did. Not only did it come together quick and easy but it’s really tasty too. The only thing I would change the next time I made this sauce is to use about half the suggested amount of sugar. Don’t get me wrong it was still good I would just prefer it to be a little less sweet. This makes enough for 4-5lbs of vegetables.


Ingredients:
  • 2/3 cup soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 1/3 cup rice wine
  • 3 1/2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon white pepper
  • 2 tablespoons cooking oil
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon minced ginger
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup water
Directions:
  1. In a bowl, combine soy sauce, broth, rice wine, sugar, sesame oil and white pepper.
  2. Dissolve the cornstarch in 1/4 cup water.
  3. Heat a pan over high heat; add the cooking oil, swirling to coat; add the garlic and ginger; cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 15 seconds.
  4. Add the soy sauce mixture; bring to a boil.
  5. Reduce heat to medium and cook for 1 minute.
  6. Add the cornstarch solution and cook, stirring, until the sauce boils and thickens.
