Growing up, stir fry night was one of our favorite meals to prepare as a family. It was a huge operation of cutting vegetables, crushing garlic, crying over diced onions and watching my dad work his magic with the spices and seasonings in the giant wok. He used a lot of individual ingredients, but when time was short he would sometimes grab teriyaki sauce to speed up the process of getting 6 hungry mouths fed. It was always a delicious meal (clean up was another story lol, my siblings and I would shout "Not IT!" when the time came to wash the dishes) and one that I enjoy making for my family now. One thing I learned about the remade sauces is that most of them contain high fructose corn syrup and astronomical amounts of sodium. So over the last couple of years I've been making my own stir fry sauce with healthier ingredients that don't mean sacrificing flavor!
What you'll need:
-1/4 cup of Tamari or Braggs Liquid Aminos (soy free option, find in the health food section in Kroger)
-2 tbsp organic honey (I used Manuka)
-1 tsp ground ginger
-1/2 tsp Chinese 5 Spice
-1/4 tsp black pepper
-pinch of All Purpose Blend (optional)
When making stir fry, I'll prep this sauce ahead, and add to the vegetables once they start to get a little tender. There is a rich, sweet flavor and the spices come together for a delicious meal any day of the week. Enjoy my friends!
