Stir Fry Sauce – A Beautiful Mess


We make a lot of stir fry at our house. I love rice, I love pasta, and I love using up any leftover meat and vegetables I have in my fridge. I also believe that being able to make a great stir fry is one of those meals that everyone should know about, and should be taught in schools as a basic life skill. This recipe for stir fry sauce is the best.

While yes, you can certainly use a store-bought stir-fry sauce, I think there’s a lot of value in being able to put one together from things you likely already have on hand. This fried sauce is delicious, slightly sweet and slightly spicy. It goes great with almost anything you put in your frying pan.

ingredients

  • soy sauce
  • Chicken stock
  • Sesame oil
  • Rice vinegar
  • Worcestershire sauce
  • garlic
  • ginger
  • Brown sugar
  • Red pepper flakes

While this may seem like a lot of ingredients, keep in mind that many of them are either self-stable or can be stored in the refrigerator for long periods (so you can use them over time).

In a small to medium sized mixing bowl, combine all ingredients. Whisk the ingredients together until the sugar dissolves completely.

Another option is to add all the ingredients to a jar with a lid, such as a mason jar. Then shake it well until the sugar dissolves.

You can now pour the stir fry sauce over the stir fry mixture while cooking. Store any unused sauce in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a week.

Tips and alternatives

  • Instead of soy sauce, you can use low-sodium soy sauce or liquid aminos.
  • You can substitute the vegetables for the beef broth with chicken if you prefer.
  • If you do not have sesame oil and do not want to buy it, you can use another cooking oil such as olive oil. But I think the flavor of the sesame oil adds to this recipe.
  • If you don’t have rice vinegar and don’t want to buy it, you can use apple cider vinegar. I love the sweetness of rice vinegar, but apple cider vinegar works well too.
  • Instead of brown sugar, you can use granulated white, honey, or maple syrup. You can also reduce the amount of sugar if you prefer.
  • I don’t feel like this sauce needs a thickening agent. However, if you prefer one, add a teaspoon or two of cornstarch when whisking together.
