This blog has become a nice repository for my recipes. Here's one that is very good with all kinds of stir fry.
- 1/2 c soy sauce
- 1 1/2 c water
- 1/8 t white pepper
- 1/2 t ginger powder
- 1/2 t onion powder
- 3 T corn starch
I've used this sauce for all kinds of beef w/ veggies and chicken w/ veggies recipes.
Addendum: I should have added directions to my recipe, just in case. I mix all the ingredients together while my meat and veggies are cooking in the wok. After I've stir fried my meat and veggies, I push them to the side, add the sauce, and wait until the sauce thickens (a couple of minutes or so under medium heat). I then mix the meat, veggies, and sauce together, turn the heat to low, cover, and simmer for about 5 minutes.
Note that a good marinade is this brown sauce plus about 2 tablespoons of peanut or sesame oil. I marinate the meat (chicken or beef) overnight. Besides adding flavor, the marinade makes the meat more tender.
