There are several hundreds of stir fry sauces that are wonderful and fantastic to try at home.  These stir fry sauces are gives that extra succulent flavor of a stir fry dish that provide an amazing experience to a diner.  In Chinese Cuisines, sauces are usually mixed with Oriental sauces such as soy sauce, black bean sauce, the hoisin sauce the fish sauce and more, which creates a tangy, salty and somehow sweet taste for the taste buds.  Often, protein rich stir fries are mixed with chili powder or red chili flakes, to provide heat. 
Learning the art of cooking stir fries at home begins with simple traditional recipes that somehow show the simple steps of cooking stir fries to train the person how to perfectly prepare a stir fry dish.  By continuing to cook stir fried dishes, the person learns the technique and later innovate some steps to improve the dish according to his preference.  But the flavor and aroma of stir fries comes from the sauces.  Here we will share with you a multi-purpose stir fry sauces that can be prepared at your kitchen.  Preparation time is only 20 minutes, 15 minutes of measuring and preparation and 5 minutes of actual cooking.  This is a favorite stir fry sauce that makes enough for 2 meals.

THE THAI STIR FRY SAUCE:  This is great with chicken strips and vegetables.

  • 2/3 cup coconut milk
  • 2 ½ tablespoon fish sauce
  • 3 ½ tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • 1 ½ tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1/3 to ½ teaspoon dried crushed chili
  • 2 ½ teaspoon brown sugar

Mixed all the ingredients in a bowl and stir to combine.  Make sure they are stirred well until they are smooth. 

  1. You can add cornstarch to thicken the sauce if you think it is too thin.  Simply combine 1 tablespoon of cornstarch with 3 tablespoons of water and stir until the cornstarch is dissolve.  Add a bit and cook until sauce thickens.  Add more if necessary.
  2. Consider using low sodium chicken broth and soy sauce to avoid an overly salty finished dish
  3. This sauce makes 1 cup of stir fry sauce and may be too much if you are stir frying a small amount of ingredients.  But you may need the entire sauce depending on volume of meat, the noodles and the vegetables as per your stir frying recipe.  However, you can add more sauce as necessary to have it as saucy as you like and even thicken it with the thickener as desired.  
  4. And lastly, if you prefer to mix the sauce with the stir fry ingredients in the wok, this is the most important moment of creating the sauce in the wok.  Pour in liquid just enough for you to see the sauce around the edges of the proteins and vegetables.  When the liquid begins to simmer, stir up the cornstarch mixture and pour a thin stream around the wok to mix with the sauce the sauce.  Stir the entire contents of the wok together immediately; the liquid will thicken away over a hot flame that is if you have only the right amount of sauce and cornstarch thickener on your sauce.  But you can adjust if necessary. (Note: Fantastic Chinese Restaurant Stir Fried dishes do only have enough sauce on the dish to coat and not to drown.  And a good Chinese Sauce is lightly only thickened and not so gloppy.)
Enjoy your stir frying and please continue to cook too.
