Recipe for Stir Fry Sauce
We all love a good stir fry and they are a great way to use up odds and ends of meat and vegetables and even noodles.   They are a quick and easy dinner solution after a tired days work.  Simply cook some rice or throw in some noodles and it is a family pleasing meal for the night.   

We rarely start with a recipe after all these years, only a pile of odds and ends of meat and vegetables.  So it would be so practical that what we really need is just a stir fry sauce “cheat sheet” – a handy reference for the combination of sauce ingredients we might need to make different kinds of stir fry to combine with a collection of ingredients.

Combine all the ingredients in the sit fry sauce list in a small bowl, stir well to combine, and then add to your favorite stir fry.

5.    SWEET AND SOUR STIR FRY SAUCE – this is very good for chicken and pork proteins.

6.    HOT AND SOUR STIR FRY SAUCE – good for beef, pork and chicken meat, even with seafood and scallops.

  • ½ cup chicken broth
  • ¼ cup red or white wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 4 teaspoon granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon chili paste (Sambal Oleek)
Follow instruction given above on how to use

Some of these sauces have already cornstarch added, but if they don’t, you can add some to thicken the sauce that you think is too thin.  Simply combine 1 tablespoon of cornstarch with 3 tablespoons of water and stir until cornstarch is dissolved and add them to the sauce.  For a healthier diet, use low sodium chicken broth and soy sauce to avoid an overly salty finish dish.  Enjoy these recipes for stir fry at home and please continue cooking.
