1 1/2 teaspoon sesame oil 1/2 teaspoon minced garlic 1/2 teaspoon minced ginger 1/2 cup chicken broth 1 tablespoon soy sauce 1 tablespoon brown sugar 1/8 teaspoon Tabasco sauce 1/2 teaspoon salt 1/4 teaspoon black pepper 1 1/2 teaspoon lemon or lime juice 1 1/2 teaspoon cornstarch 1 tablespoon rice wine or sherry
Heat the sesame oil in a small saucepan. Add the ginger and garlic and stir-fry 15-30 second over medium heat to bring out the flavor. Add the chicken broth, soy sauce, brown sugar, Tabasco, salt, pepper, and lemon juice. Bring just to a boil, stirring. Dissolve the cornstarch in the wine and whisk into the sauce. Heat until sauce thickens and reaches a full boil.
Simmer for 30 seconds. Remove from the heat and set aside.

I agree, way better than the bottled stuff or even worse the dry mix kind! I think you can probably store this for a while too - so if you're going to have stir fry twice in a week make up a double batch at once.

Thank you so much for posting this recipe. i thoroughly enjoyed making the sauce. Since I'm new to the kitchen, I was surpriesed how easy it was to make (once i found the ingredients). I'm obsessed with stir fry and so tired of the store bought stuff- i thought i'd give this homemade sauce a try. It worked out great. Thanks again!

This sauce was PERFECT for my stir fry, even though I had to sub water for the broth and wine! It was so delicious... thanks for posting!

This stir fry sauce got rave reviews from my kids, ages 8- 15. Love the fresh ginger flavor. I doubled the recipe and used rice wine vinegar. Next time I will probably use less salt. I've been looking for a good (not too) basic stir fry sauce, and this is my new standard.

I found this sauce to lack slightly in flavor (perhaps too much broth?). It seems to be a good starting point, though, to create your own sauce.

really good. used rice noodles. i substituted flour for the corn starch (just double it). and I used cayenne powder instead of tobasco and i used regular sugar instead of brown sugar. it turned out very tasty.

This is some good stuff and very easy to make. No need to order chinese out.
Guest Foodie January 19, 2008 REVIEW:
This was so yummy! Next time I will double the recipe because the sauce was so good I wanted more on my chicken and veggies. Got a thumbs up from my picky 8 year old too. Not too spicy at all. I did lessen the pepper to 1/8 t. And I used white cooking wine in place of the sherry since that's all I had on hand. Will be putting this in my recipe book.

I have made this twice now it is excellent, the first time I made it I made it the way it is and I don't care for hot sauce so I omitted that and I can't have any amount of alcohol so I substituted water and it worked beautifully. The second time I made it done it the same way except I doubled the recipe, which made the stir fry superb if you like a lot of stir fry sauce on your stir fry.
