    Connie K's Note:

    Adapted from Martin Yan's Chinese Cooking for Dummies. This is my favorite stir-fry sauce. It makes enough for two meals. Having extra on hand makes for a quick meal. My son will actually eat vegetables he can dip in the sauce! WARNING about the amount of soy sauce. When I used Kikkoman soy sauce, I found this sauce far too salty. I now use Angostura, which is much lower in salt. When adding soy sauce, start with less than half the amount and slowly add more to taste. Using vegetable broth makes this vegetarian. Yield: 1 3/4 cups (couldn't get that amount entered)

      Voted down for the sheer annoyance of making the recipe, finding it extremely saltly then seeing in the "comments" to not use the specified amount of soy sauce listed. Edit the recipe.

      Excellent! This is a keeper, definitely. Since my hubby likes pineapple in his fried rice, I used the pineapplejuice instead of the water and broth, and added Sriracha Hot Chili Sauce since we like foods on the hot side. His compliments were this was the best fried rice he has had (even from our favorite take-out). Thanks for sharing.

      Easy to make, very delicious! I substituted water for half the soy sauce and found the salt content just about right. I'm glad I doubled the recipe as now I have some to keep in the fridge for another meal this week.
