Recipes For Stir Fry Are Great If They Are Sauted With A Very Good Sauce

Recipes for stir fry are great if they are sautéed with a very good sauce.  For starters, here is sauce that we have crafted in our kitchen that makes any stir fry recipe a surprisingly delectable dish.  We have used chilli sauce to heat this sauté and sesame oil to give it the Asian touch.  Sesame oil plays an important role in stir fries if you want to get the Asian taste you expected.  Once you learn this, you will never cook stir fries without the sesame oil in your hand.  Try this stir fry sauce at home and enjoy a wonderful stir fry with it.  Below the sauce recipe is a stir fry recipe that you can try at home, a season’s treat for the family. 


  • 1/2 cold cup water
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch, you can have a thinner sauce by reducing the cornstarch slightly
  • 4 tablespoons brown sugar, you can add more or reduce the amount  according to taste
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce, please use the less sodium type
  • 1/2 teaspoon ginger powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder, add more if desired
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil, you can use more
  • 1 teaspoon seasoned rice vinegar, it is your option to use more as needed
  • 1 teaspoon hot chili sauce, optional or adjust to heat level
  • Whisk the water with cornstarch in a small mixing bowl until smooth leaving no slumps.
  • Add in all remaining ingredients and whisk until blended.  If you are preparing this for storage purposes, whisk again before using as the cornstarch usually settles in the bottom of the container.
  • After mixing, sample the sauce and adjust/increase the brown sugar, ginger and garlic according to your taste. NOTE:  Please remember this sauce will taste sweeter when cooked, so don’t use too much brown sugar.
  • You can use this sauce to cooked stir fried beef, chicken or cubes but cook and stir it till bubbly and thick.
