  1. Mix soy sauce, oyster sauce, rice wine, sugar, and white pepper together in a small saucepan. Cook and stir over medium-low heat until heated through, about 5 minutes.
  2. Mix water and cornstarch together in a small bowl. Pour into the saucepan; simmer until sauce thickens, about 5 minutes.


  • Cook's Note:
  • Substitute sherry for the rice wine if preferred.
  • If using in a stir-fry: Stir fry your choice of vegetable or meat. Add the mixture from step 1; toss to coat. Dissolve cornstarch in water; stir into the pan and cook until thickened, 3 to 5 minutes.

Nice and simple! I used this for a chicken and veggie stir fry, and that was great! I would make this again! Thanks for sharing. :)
