stir fry sauce question

I like stir frying my veggies, but I am getting bored with always stir frying with olive oil and kikoman light teriyaki sauce. Any ideas of other things I can use to stir fry with?

Re: stir fry sauce question

I have a wonderful 'sauce' that I use all the time. Stir fry your veggies as usual and cook up some plain quinoa or rice or whatever grain you like and then add all these ingrediants together;

2 cloves garlic, finely chopped (I prefer to roast mine first as I hate raw garlic taste and smell)
1 tablespoon ginger, freshly grated
2 tablespoon chopped spring onion
1 teaspoon ground coriander
1 teaspoon cumin powder
1/2 teaspoon chilli paste (you can buy from health food store or good supermarket)
3 tablespoons soy sauce
3 tablespoons water
4 tablespoons lemon juice
freshly grater rind of 1 lemon
1-2 tablespoons brown sugar/honey/agave necter - whatever sweetener you like
6-8 tablespoons coconut milk

While ingrediants are heating in a pan, put a tbsp or so of flour in a small bowl and add water slowly and mix constantly until it forms a runny paste and then add to the mixture. Or, you could use your usual thickener.

Add veggies to the thickened, heated sauce and serve over rice. DEEE-LICIOUS!

I love this sauce so much that I often triple the recipe and put it in a jar so its ready to use when I crave it again.

Note: If you don't like little chunks of stuff in your sauce you could always blend the sauce before you heat it up - I often do this.

Re: stir fry sauce question

Bluehen,

See if you can find something called San-Jay Szechuan Sauce if you have an oriental market near you...or a BIG Supermarket with an "International" aisle. At the last minute of the stir fry, stir in a Tbsp. and you're culinarily whisked to Peking.

You can do the same with a T. of any othe PATAK Curry Pastes (the Vindaloo is fiery, others milder), except that your final destination will be New Delhi!

It's a CHEAP way to travel.

Re: stir fry sauce question

Bluehen-
I LOVE stir fry veggies and have actually been on this weird kick lately where it's dinner every night!
I stirfry with nonstick spray (like Pam) and for flavor: good old fashioned soy sauce and red pepper. It's easy, tasty, and soy sauce only has like 20 cal per 2 tbsp.
Also, I think you get some protein from the soy sauce.

Re: stir fry sauce question

Thanks superherogirl80 that is exactly what I was looking for something light, cheap, simple and easy, maybe I'll try the soy sauce. I do stir fry's every night for dinner too, its the easiest quickest thing to make for me.

Re: stir fry sauce question

A lot of my friends are Asian and I learned to cook Chinese food from one of their Mom's. The traditional sauce in Chinese stir-fries is a mixture of soy and oyster sauce mixed with a little water and corn starch to make it thicken and shiny. It is the only sauce I use in my stir-fries and it always turns out well. Basically mix equal parts of soy and oyster sauce, mix 1/2 cup water with 1 tbsp of corn starch, add all together and add to the end of the stir-fry. It's delish!

Re: stir fry sauce question

hi, i am chinese so i eat stirfry everyday (unfortunately). here is what we use: usually just soy sauce (for color and salt) and green onions, sometimes some brown sugar, chicken bouillion, garlic powder. stirfry is not supposed to use that much sauce, it's more about the vegetables really, so keep it light. why mask the taste of good food with a heavy sauce? sometimes my mom will add corn starch to thicken the sauce. adding sesame oil when you're doing cooking makes it look shiny and taste yummy. good stirfries ingredients (it's all about the vegetables, right?) include soy beans, lotus root, and tofu.

Re: stir fry sauce question

Wine, dark soy sauce, hoisin sauce, hot chilli oil, oyster sauce, fish sauce, rice wine, xiang dark vinegar, or apple cider vinegar.....You can also add tumeric and curry powder for a little different flavor.
