Stir Fry Sauce is so easy to make and is prepared with only three ingredients that you probably have stocked in your cupboard already!
If I had known how easy it was to make stir fry sauce, I never would have bought the bottled stuff. You can use it as chicken stir fry sauce, pork stir fry, sauce, and even seafood stir fry sauce.
Or heck, skip the meat entirely if you want and make a yummy vegetable stir fry with our easy sauce! We like to serve our stir fry over cauliflower rice.

What is Vietnamese Stir Fry Sauce?
Our sauce is a generic Asian inspired stir fry sauce. Specifically Vietnamese stir fry sauce traditionally includes fish sauce to add to the flavor, which you are more than welcome to add here! Red Boat Fish sauce is our personal favorite.
How do I use Stir Fry Sauce?
Short answer, is that you’ll want a hot wok or pan, oil, stir fry vegetables, and a protein of your choice. For full instructions, make sure to check out our Pork and Veggie Stir Fry Recipe. And it sounds weird, but don’t skip velveting the meat!
Can Stir Fry Sauce go bad?
As with most homemade condiments, you’ll want to look at the expiration dates of the individual ingredients, and then use some common sense. We general just make enough for a single meal so we never worry about it going bad.
How do you thicken Stir Fry Sauce?
We don’t generally thicken ours, but if you felt it was necessary, you could add a slurry of cornstarch (or arrowroot flour).
Combine a teaspoon of starch with just enough cold water to dissolve into a slurry, then add it to the sauce. Repeat until desired consistency is reached.

Also, maybe four of those children are boys, and serving food on a long pointy is not the safest decision. On occasions, we love this satay inspired dish made with whole roasted chicken thighs.
Japanese Cucumber Salad – P.S. Another hardcore favorite of mine. This Japanese Cucumber Salad is 100% guilt free, but feels like a special treat. Especially if you use the spiralizer to shave it into thin swirls!
