Why Make Homemade Stir Fry Sauce?

Not only is this homemade stir fry sauce awesome (awesome sauce) but it’s such an easy stir fry sauce to make you won’t believe it until you try it.

There’s nothing to it besides adding all the ingredients to a pot and letting it boil for a few minutes to thicken up. And besides the one teaspoon of sesame oil in the whole recipe, there’s no other oil or fat involved.

So you’re not taking your healthy stir-fry recipe and making it unhealthy with all the sauce you’re putting on top.

We first came up with this recipe when we made our Asian Chicken and Brussels Sprouts recipe which has become one of our favorite repeat dinners. The boys ask for it ALL the time.

Honestly, I never thought we’d be buying so many darn brussels sprouts at the grocery store.

This authentic stir-fry sauce recipe will work on most anything your cooking up. Chicken and broccoli brown sauce recipes, a vegetable stir-fry, or even toss a little into homemade fried rice for some added flavor.

We keep this yummy stir fry sauce it in the fridge and use it all week. Our boys like to dip chicken fingers in it too…it’s actually replaced honey mustard sauce for them at the moment.

    So “freshly grated ginger”, is that a dry hunk of ginger root or do I buy the wet stuff that comes in a jar that I see in the asian aisle at the grocery store?
    Forgive my ignorance, I’ve never cooked with ginger before.

    1. You can buy either! Actually there’s a tube of it too, which I find pretty helpful. Fresh ginger is amazing though if you haven’t ever tried cooking with it. You can peel it and then cut it into pieces and freeze it, then shave it with a grater or microplane right from frozen!

    2. You can peel ginger root, put it in a container filled with Dry Vermouth, and store in the fridge almost forever! Slice or shred when needed, the ginger will infuse the Vermouth, and you can put a couple of teaspoons in scrambled eggs with scallions and that is awesome!!!
