To make the sauce

  1. Combine all of the ingredients in a bowl or glass jar and whisk together until well combined and the corn starch is dissolved.

To cook with the sauce

  1. Stir fry your veggies/proteins until almost completely cooked. Add enough sauce to lightly coat your stir fry ingredients and stir to combine. Let the sauce heat and thicken slightly, about 2 minutes and taste. Add more sauce if desired, adding a little at a time until your desired flavor is achieved.

Recipe Notes

This recipe makes enough sauce for a very large pan of stir fried noodles and vegetables. Start with enough to coat your stir fry and add more to your taste.

  • We keep the sauce very simple and versatile, so more flavor will be needed in your stir fry for depth. There's no garlic, ginger, or onion in the sauce and we find that these ingredients are a MUST in stir fry. Be sure to add those when cooking your veggies/proteins.
  • Swap out of the veggie stock for what you have. If you like chicken or beef stock, use one of those! We love the Better than Bouillon's no chicken base and the no beef base as well.
  • Dissolve the corn starch completely before adding to your stir fry. You don't want clumps of corn starch!
  • Let the sauce thicken when cooking. If you cook the sauce in the pan with your stir fry ingredients for a couple of minutes, that corn starch will allow the sauce to thicken and coat your ingredients.
  • Gluten free? No problem! Swap out the soy sauce for coconut aminos.
  • Need less sodium? Use lower sodium soy sauce!
