Basic Stir-Fry Sauce

Total Time

This is my basic stir-fry sauce. I use it with any number of combinations of meat and/or vegetables. I don't claim that it's "authentic" but my family enjoys it. It is made up of ingredients that are easy to find in any supermarket.

  1. Heat oil in a pan on medium heat. Add onion and saute until translucent.
  2. Add garlic, soy sauce, teriyaki, ginger, pepper, and pepper flakes. Simmer gently for about a minute.
  3. Dissolve cornstarch into water completely and add to pan. Stir constantly until sauce bubbles and thickens slightly, less than 1 minute.
  4. Finish sauce with lime juice. Toss with stir-fried meat and/or vegetables and serve.
