Stir-fry is one of my favorite things to make (and of course, eat!).  Making your own stir-fry sauce is both easy and much healthier than store-bought options, since YOU are in control of the ingredients.  Below is the recipe that I use; if you try it out, let me know what you think.  –Emily 

  • 1 c chicken stock (unsalted, if you are using home-made stock or low-sodium if you are using store-bought stock)
  • ½ c water
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/8 c brown sugar
  • 1-2 TBSP fresh, chopped ginger
  • 2 ½ TBSP soy sauce
  • 1 ½ TBSP cornstarch
  • pepper to taste
  • 1 TBSP oil

In a small saucepan, heat the oil over low-medium heat; add the garlic and ginger. Sauté for 1-2 minutes.  Add all remaining ingredients and heat until thickened, whisking often.
