Recipe Info

Use this easy all-purpose stir fry sauce recipe for your favorite stir fry recipes! Perfect with any protein and vegetables, over rice or noodles.

2 T cornstarch
¼ cup cold water
½ cup chicken broth (use veggie, or beef broth, as needed) (low sodium, if preferred)
⅓ cup soy sauce (low sodium, if preferred)
¼ cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons Shaoxing cooking wine (or dry sherry) (gives it that true “take out” flavor)
1 T sesame oil
1 T minced fresh ginger
1 T minced fresh garlic
¼ t crushed red pepper flakes

Combine cornstarch and water in a mason jar until smooth, or mix in a small bowl, with a whisk to form a slurry. Then add in all the remaining ingredients. Fasten the lid, and shake until fully incorporated. (Alternatively, you can mix everything in a bowl with a whisk.) Use as desired. If not using right away, store in a sealed jar or airtight container in the refrigerator. Note: after it’s been sitting and untouched for a while, the ingredients will separate and the cornstarch has a tendency to settle and harden at the bottom of the jar. Take a dull knife to loosen it up, then fasten the lid and give it a good shake to reincorporate everything before using.
