If one has to make a sauce that is of equal value in the kitchen like soy sauce, fish sauce, vinegar, etc. this is one you should make and keep handy.
Stir Fry Sauce for General Use
Keep this stir fry sauce handy in your kitchen just like soy sauce, fish sauce, or vinegar for use in chopsuey, lumpiang prito, or pansit.
- 1 cup light soy sauce
- ½ cup mirin (Japanese cooking wine)
- ½ cup (100 grams) sugar
In a small sauce pan, mix all the ingredients inside, over a low fire and slowly bring to a simmer till the sugar is completely dissolved.
Cool, bottle and keep in refrigerator till ready to use.
This is good with Chop Suey, for Lumpiang Frito base, for Pancit Canton and Bihon; go for your imagination!
