Husband begged for stir-fry, so I had to search for a good stir-fry sauce. I found a couple that I liked, but I ended up making my own and throwing stuff together. This is what I came up with! He drooled and ate so much I thought he'd burst! :)

How to Make Spicy Stir Fry Sauce

Step-by-Step

  1. In a bowl, combine soy sauce, broth, rice wine, sugar, sesame oil, white pepper, hoisin sauce and garlic chili sauce.
  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 (I like to use ginger paste (found in produce refrigerator section, lasts a long time and tastes great); 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.
  7. Add to stir-fry vegetables and chicken, steak or seafood. Freezes well in small zip lock bags, next time you make stir fry, just pull out a small frozen bag and add to stir-fry.
