A basic stir fry sauce that I've been using for years. I got the recipe from my mother, but I don't know where she got it from. I make no claim to authenticity.

This was very good, but I thought it was a bit too sweet. I would definitely lessen the brown sugar. I added crushed red pepper and black pepper, and served it with chicken, broccoli, and linguine.

Made it last night for my very picky family, and they loved it.. I didn't have ginger in the cupboard, so I omitted it -- but I think it needs that extra spice.. Will definitely be a favourite. Marlene H. ONtario, Canada
