    megnbrycesmom's Note:

    This recipe came from a Williams-Sonoma cookbook. It is a generic chinese type brown sauce great for making just about any type of stir fry. Simple and delicious. Our favorite way to use it is on a stir fry of beef, asparagus, and red pepper.

      Great sauce. I made some changes to incorporate the ingredients I had so left out the shallot, subbed chilli flakes for the chilli oil, added two cubes of palm sugar and several drops of sesame oil. I used four TBS of flour in place of the cornstarch and ended up using over half a cup of water as I added a large can of tuna to my stir fry of onion, mushrooms, red pepper, asparagus, spinach and noodles. Will double the sauce ingredients next time (IOW 1 cup of water) as the tuna really soaks it up.

      This is a very nice stir fry sauce. I had it tonight with tofu and broccoli. I didn't have chili oil and substituted garlic chili sauce

      This is good, but I added 1 thai chilie, 1/8 tsp toasted sesame oil, and 2 tsp more soy because it was not enough liquid for the amount of veggs we had. I will use this again
