  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch, or more as needed

  • ½ cup low-sodium beef broth

  • ½ cup low-sodium soy sauce

  • 2 teaspoons rice vinegar

  • 2 teaspoons wine vinegar

  • 2 teaspoons red pepper flakes

  • 1 teaspoon white sugar

  • ½ onion, chopped, or more to taste

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  1. Combine water and cornstarch together in a saucepan to desired thickness. Add beef broth, soy sauce, rice vinegar, wine vinegar, red pepper flakes, sugar, garlic, and ginger. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and let sauce simmer until thickened while you cook the vegetables, about 5 minutes.
