Stir Fry Sauce Made Simple

Our local grocery store had beef strips for stir fries on sale this week, which of course meant a stir fry with veggies and rice was on the menu. I have been making our stir fry sauce for a few years now, no more buying the little packages of mix for us anymore. This is so simple I promise you.

  • 2 cups of broth – chicken, beef or vegetable
  • 1/4 cup white vinegar
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp garlic powder
  • 2 tbsp cornstarch
  • 1 tsp ginger powder

Mix this together, in a jar with a lid and shake it, or as I do to make sure the cornstarch is completely mixed and throw it all into my blender. You can either use it all at once or refrigerate for a couple weeks.

When you first add it, bring it to a boil, and simmer until it thickens, it could take 5-10 minutes.

Thank you so much for this recipe. I love stir fry and have been looking for a good stir fry sauce. This sounds simple and very good. I'm going to try it this week.

Thanks so much for the recipe, there have been several times that I thought about making stir-fry and didn't have any sauce.

Thank you for the recipe. We make stir fry but it's usually with chicken. I think I'll try this next time :)
