Easy store cupboard sweet and sour-ish stir fry sauce

Once you've had stir fry with this easy store cupboard ingredient sauce, I promise you'll never buy one of those expensive, gloopy sachets again!  This has a good sweet and sour taste, and you can adjust it to make it just how you like.

Easy sweet and sour-ish stir fry sauce
  • Makes enough sauce for a stir fry serving for 2-3 hungry people

  • Two good sized tablespoons of light/thin soy sauce (I like Lee Kum Kee best of all, but any will do)
  • Two good sized tablespoons Thai sweet chilli sauce

Start cooking the stir fry, and then put the sauce ingredients in small bowl or mug, and give it a really good stir.  If you prefer a sour sweet and sour, add another teaspoon of soy sauce.  If you prefer a sweeter sauce, add another teaspoon of Thai sweet chilli sauce.  Simples!

A couple of minutes before your stir fry is cooked, pour on the sauce, and give it a good mix round in the pan.  Let it bubble for a minute or so.

Serve, eat and enjoy!  

I'd love to know if this works for you.. did you adjust the quantities?
