Recipe by Lennie
My SIL is a newlywed, and she's turning into quite a good cook -- we have even started sharing recipes. This is HER stir fry sauce, and I love its basic goodness. You can add ingredients (I'll add a few spoonfuls of black bean sauce sometimes, for example) or change them around (I often use brown sugar instead of white, and sometimes I use rice wine vinegar instead of the white). I keep losing the piece of paper I have this scribbled on, so it's time to bring it to Zaar!
- 4 teaspoons cornstarch
- 2⁄3 cup water (or chicken or beef broth, if desired)
- 3 tablespoons soy sauce
- 1 tablespoon vinegar
- 2 teaspoons sugar
- Whisk all ingredients together until smooth.
- Add to stir fry just at the end, stirring well into the dish and let sauce come to a bubble.
- Let simmer until sauce has thickened, then serve.
