Recipes for Stir Fry Sauce

Updated on June 24, 2012

This hub is in response to a question I saw posted on someone's hub. Unfortunately,  I seem to be unable to find the question now. It asked if anyone knew a good recipe for a stir fry sauce to go with chicken. I thought what a great idea for a hub. Well, here's the answer. I am including 5 recipes for stir fry sauces that will work well with chicken. In each of them to make them blend with beef all you have to do is change the chicken broth to beef broth. Having fun trying them and happy eating.

      Duchess, I aim to please. Actually the easy one is quite good. I love doing the other ones but when I don't have time the easy recipe is a life saver.

      Great collection. I would choose the easy one myself, but hoping the hubby tries the low sodium one. He's a better cook than I am (lucky me :)

      Specialk3749 I am so happy you found the hub. I felt so bad when I couldn't find the question again. I hope you like these recipes enough to choose a favorite. Thanks for finding the answer to your question on my hub and for letting me know.

      This was one of "my" questions!!!!!!!!! I am so excited to get these recipes. There use to be a packet in the store that I would buy and my family really liked it. But, the store quit supplying it and I haven't found anything that is comparable. I decided it would be healthier to do it myself anyway, but I am the kind that "needs" a recipe to follow. Thank you so much for making these into a hub. My family will love you!

      I try to include at least one low sodium recipe on each cooking hub. It's the way I have to eat and I know others do also. Thanks for stopping in and thanks for your comment.

      Nice variations! I especially like the Low Sodium version. With the great tastes of garlic, ginger, sesame, lemon, and soy, salt won't be missed at all.
