The easiest stir fry sauce recipe ever #Recipes#mason jars#sauces January 16 | Megan Finley Horowitz meggyfin Instagram photo by @hippoandriley This is Offbeat Homie HippoandRiley's, recipe for the "easiest stir fry sauce ever." Ingredients: 1½ cup broth — chicken, veggie, or beef works! ½ cup water ½ cup apple cider vinegar — white vinegar works too ½ cup soy sauce 2 cloves minced garlic — I use the freeze dried kind) 1⁄4 cup brown sugar — eyeball it, don't bother dirtying a measuring cup! 1⁄4 tsp ground ginger 2-3 tbsp cornstarch Instructions: Put everything into a quart size mason jar and shake until mixed. (Use a jar with cup measurements on the side to be extra lazy… errrr… efficient.) Combine this sauce with your favorite veggies and/or meat! Then keep your extra sauce (ha, like there'll be any extra!) in the fridge for up to two weeks. What are you recipes for Megan-simple stir fry sauce? Join our community!

Pretty basic, mostly fool-proof. In a saucepan: tablespoon of oil a bunch of minced garlic (a couple tablespoons?) a few shakes of ginger powder (you can use fresh, but I don't keep it stocked in my kitchen) heat and once it sizzles, time it for about a minute, stir throughout or things gonna burn then add 1/2 cup of water, 1/2 cup of soy sauce, 1/2 cup of brown sugar boil the crap out of that once you think it's nice and boiled and mixed, take it off the heat add in a mixture of 1 tablespoon water & 1 tablespoon cornstarch STIR THAT BITCH ***at some point you should have started cooking the chicken/beef. If you didn't, let this be a life lesson that you should read the whole recipe before starting*** Once I mix in the water/cornstarch, I immediately dump the small pot on the nearly-cooked chicken. I still haven't gotten the timing down perfectly, so let me know if you do. I usually cook the chicken too long, but of course I do because if you're following a chump recipe like this, you don't cook often. Add in steamed veggie of choice. I think broccoli goes well with it. Also rice. There you go! 4 agree Reply Any recipe that involves "STIR THAT BITCH" makes me very happy. Thank you! 2 agree Reply Garlic, ginger, soy sauce. That's it. Equal parts (a few tablespoons) for the liquid, a few cloves for the garlic. Easy and tasty! 3 agree Reply that's what I do too. Sometimes I'll stir in some chili sauce if I want it spicy. 1 agrees Reply Mine's even easier! A couple of teaspoons of cornflour (cornstarch) in a small bowl. Add sherry if you want, soy sauce to taste (at least a couple of tablespoons), and about half a cup of water. You've already put garlic into the stir fry – I don't like the raw garlic taste – so when you're ready to sauce up, put a good blob of honey in the pan, let it melt and stick to your veges, then pour in the sauce and let it boil to cook the cornflour/starch. You might want to add a little more liquid according to taste. When you're done you can toss in a squeeze of Sriracha if you like and you're good to go. I like the shiny, slightly sticky consistency of the sauce. 1 agrees Reply I use a mix I adapted from a japchae recipe: 2 tbsp sugar 3 or 3.5 tbsp soy sauce 1 tbsp rice vinegar or mirin (depending on my mood) 1 tbsp each sesame oil, chili oil, fish sauce You can tweak the proportions as you like, combine ingredients in bowl, set aside. – Cook half a package of your noodles of choice, drain, then add a scoop or two of the sauce and mix it in to keep them from sticking. – Stir fry your protein in vegetable oil and sesame oil, remove from pan. – add the slow veggies to the pan (think onion, carrot, I always add my garlic and ginger here too) and stir fry until tender, then mix in one tbsp of the sauce – add your softer veg (bell pepper, broccoli, snap peas, etc) and continue to fry until they're approaching doneness, then add a little more sauce – add any leafy veg like spinach or kale and stir fry like 2 min, won't take long – stir your protein back into the mix and add some more sauce – add the noodles and remaining sauce and stir fry the whole mess together while the sauce coats it all in a delicious umami glaze, maybe 3 min more Reply Join the conversation Cancel Reply Your email address will not be published.
