To use this sauce, just stir-fry vegetables and meat (optional), then pour in some sauce. Stir as it thickens and add a bit of water if it is too thick. It's just that easy!

This was good. I made a stir-fry that seriously lacked in flavor and decided to make this and add to it. It turned a boring recipe into a dish bursting in flavor. The one change I would recommend is using crushed red chili flakes instead of cayenne. They just seem to fit better in Asian cuisine. Read More

Not really happy with this one. Too much vinegar and chicken broth. Tasted pretty much like bland vinegar. I added a lot of other things to try to bring it too life. I probably should have just started over with another recipe I m not saying the recipe is bad. After all it sounded good when I read it. You should try it for yourself. Read More

This sauce is so easy and delicious. This recipes will fill 2 large mason jars. It thickens up nice. I added a little Chinese 5 spice, salt and pepper to my veggies. Read More

I didn’t have corn syrup, so I substituted with light brown sugar. It was awesome! Next time I’ll add some Thai Chile sauce to spice it up a bit. Read More
