Stir Fry Sauce Recipes
Posted Saturday, January 7, 2012 at 8:50 AM

so i was looking at the kick start menu plan. i saw the Easy Stir Fry. I think the recipe is a little tooo simple and leaves out information on a low fat stir fry sauce. What is that? Can i buy it?

i was looking at my recipes and i don't think they fit the plan. but i do think they are good.. so i will post. You might want to use them after the ks is over.

my favorite:
Kung Pao (i think from vegweb)-makes ALOT i have learned to half it.
1c Hoisin Sauce, 1 Tablespoon Sambal Oelek, 1 tablespoon Spicy Bean Paste, 1/2 cup Red Wine Vinegar, 1/2 cup Sugar (i use florida crystals), 1/2 cup low sodium soy sauce.-- comebine it all..

Easy Thai-Coconut-so easy and really good.
Whisk a 14oz can light coconut milk, 2 tablespoons brown sugar, 1 tablespoon green curry paste, 1/4 cup chopped cilantro or mint in a small bowl till blended.

Sweet & Sour-i haven't tried this yet.
Stir 1/2 cup Apricot Preserves, 1/4 cup Ketchup, 2 Tablespoons Cider Vinegar & 1 tsp minced garlic till blended.

Ginger Soy
Stir 1/2 cup Orange Juice, 1/4 cup Soy-Sauce, 2 Tablespoon Honey, 2 tablespoon Water, 1 tablespoon grated Ginger, 1 tablespoon minced Scallion, 2 tsp Cornstarch & 1 tsp Sesame Oil in a small bowl till cornstarch is dissolved

Garlic
Mix 1 tablespoon water & 1 1/2 tsp cornstarch in glass 2 cup measureing cup. Add 1/4 c. minced onion, 1/3 cup soy sauce, 1/4 cup rice vinegar, 4 cloves minced garlic, 3 tablespoons Sesame Oil (i adjust this to taste) 2 teaspoons sugar, and 2 teaspoons chili oil. Cook in microwave till thick. (make sure it is a glass container)

So does anyone else have any favorite stir fry recipes?

Thanks for these sauce recipes, CC. I've been using a bottled ginger sauce (Mr. Spice Organic - salt/gluten/fat free) and while it's good it still tastes, well, bottled.

What is "sambal oelek"?

I'm a little lazier - I add tamari to my water sauté.

I don't have access to my cookbooks right now (traveling) but there was one that was really good, I think it was in Christina Perello's book it was for a Schezwan sauce

If any one the exact recipe PLEASE email me mid month to remind me and I would be happy to find it and email it back or post it to the site.

What I remember is (roughly)

1 cup water
2 tablespoons corn starch
1 tablespoon tamari (or soy if gluten is not a problem)
2 tablespoons orange marmalade
red pepper flakes

Please keep in mind I have not made this in a while and I could be way off base.
