Basic Stir Fry Sauce

I admit that I’ve been guilty of throwing some soy sauce or sweet chili sauce in and calling it a day. That may taste much better, but it’s not bad at all.

A harmonious blend of sweet, sour, spice, and salt characterizes the ideal chicken noodle stir-fry sauce in my opinion.

You can add a healthy dose of salt and the base flavor of the stir fry with the oyster sauce and dark soy sauce. I use brown sugar to balance and sweeten that strong taste of salt. Merely half a teaspoon is sufficient to achieve equilibrium. I then incorporate fresh lime juice to add the sour element. Lastly I add in white pepper. White pepper complements stir-fried foods well and has a higher spice level than regular black pepper.

Many recipes also thicken stir fry sauces with cornstarch/cornflour. I usually find that oyster sauce and dark soy sauce are thick enough, but if you think it needs more thickness, you can always add cornstarch or cornflour.
