15 Basic Stir Fry Sauce Recipes

15 Basic Stir Fry Sauce Recipes
I love a good stir fry and they are a great way to use up odds and ends of meat, vegetable and noodles. And let’s face it, they are a quick and easy dinner solution. Simply cook up some rice or throw in some noodles and it’s a family-pleasing meal. I rarely start with a recipe – just a pile of odds and ends. So it occurred to me recently that what I really needed was a stir-fry sauce “cheat sheet” – a handy reference for the combination of sauce ingredients I need to make different kinds of stir fry to combine with my collection of ingredients. Here I’ve collected 15 great stir-fry sauce recipes that can be printed to keep handy in the kitchen (or bookmarked, if you prefer). Instructions for all of these recipes … just combine the ingredients in a small bowl, stir well to combine, then add to your stir fry.

Grilled Cheese Social I've got to get this off of my chest. I care about bees. Like a lot. So much so, that when I have to write up the Links We Love at work each week I try to throw in one story about what's going on in the world of bees. It's gotten a little much though. Can I order an easier life? For all those who have it harder than I do.... I've been feeling a bit sorry for myself these days, with all the suffering I've been doing at the hands of Son's unsuccessful potty training venture, Daughter #1's start of school, and Daughter #2's temper tantrums over swim lessons, and all in all just being tried day after day. First grade homework stresses me out like you wouldn't believe, which sounds slightly ridiculous I know, but the act of trying to get through homework without pulling out all of my hair is a feat only managed by the best of women I'm sure. I am not one of them. At one point during first grade homework, my voice will rise and I will lose my temper.

A couple of days ago, I couldn’t decide which recipe to post here on the blog, so I polled readers on my Facebook page, and the votes were about two to one in favor of these savory veggie-lentil loaves!

Indonesian Cucumber Salad Indonesian Cucumber Salad I was looking for a light and tasty salad to go with the pork tenderloin I was making for dinner when I came across several different variations for an Indonesian cucumber salad. I decided to make my own version using cucumber, red onion, and cilantro. I used seasoned rice vinegar with a touch of sugar, crushed red pepper flakes, and sea salt & freshly cracked black pepper to season the cucumbers. This recipe couldn’t have been easier to make and it tasted great! Lucy Knisley - CHAI! Oh sweet! I'm totally going to use this, thanks. if you go to middle eastern stores, or even indian stores cardamon is waaay waaaaay cheaper. stop buying ethnic ingredients at chain grocery stores- they over charge!! same goes with pomegranate juice... or figs... or dates.

Foodbuzz 24, 24, 24: Chinese Buffet at Home It is no secret that I have an obsession with Chinese cuisine. The place that started it all was a local Chinese buffet here in Michigan. After frequent visits to the buffet over the years, I finally decided to take a stab at cooking my own Chinese dishes at home. The majority of the dishes were delicious and I began cooking different Chinese meals every week, but I had always wanted more variety just like the buffet.

Healthy Chicken Pot Stickers with Minted Soy Sauce Monday night I had dinner all planned out according to my craving. The kids and I were going to make pillowy soft gnocchi. Well, my darling daughter had something else in mind. $2 Meal Week day 5: Black Bean and Brown Rice Burgers I am 5 days into Codewe’s $2 A Day challenge, in which you are challenged to live on the same budget that 20 million Ugandans have to, and I have to say, I’m so glad I’ve done it. I’ve realised that not only can you eat on such a strict budget – albeit with a little planning and a bit more effort – the situation has pushed me into taking risks that I wouldn’t have taken and changing up some cooking habits that needed to be changed. I’ve also realised that a little food can actually feed a lot. This recipe, with just 1/2 cup rice, 2 cups beans, 1 onion and not even a whole zucchini, makes enough to feed 4 as a main meal, with a little salad added in. I’ll be eating these for lunch for the rest of the week!

Sweet and Sour Crackerjack Shrimp Recipe Sweet and Sour Crackerjack Shrimp Crackjerack Shrimp and I go way back. Back to the awkward days of high school, when braces and retainers ruled the campus quad and lacrosse practices seeped into dinnertime hours. But when the final whistle did blow, I’d race home, eager and ready to devour whatever my mom had been cooking up in our kitchen. There was the crunchy bite of Wienerschnitzel, the comforting taste of Fried Spaghetti, the sweet and tangy flavor of Baby Back Ribs. And on the extra special nights, the aromatic zing of fresh garlic and ginger wafting from Crackerjack Shrimp.

cumin seed roasted cauliflower with yogurt I do this dreary thing every October where I decide on the first day that requires a scarf and a hustle in your step to keep warm that the long, gloomy descent into winter has begun and soon the world will be brown, gray and frozen and this will continue until April or beyond and I might as well stock up on some farro and root vegetables and climb into my igloo because that’s all there will be for a long time. I am clearly no fun at all, and also a little blind as I declare this while stepping over crinkly flame-throwers of leaves, while the sky is still fantastically blue and generally, without even have stepped through a farmers market. Because the markets? Are actually as pretty as they get all year, tables overflowing with everything from carrots to late summer squash, hearty greens, tiny pumpkins, marble-sized potatoes and great big globes of broccoli and cauliflower. It’s now or never to haul it home.

Kung Pao Chicken Recipe Here’s the recipe you all might have been waiting for – the legendary Kung Pao Chicken! I have wanted to make this for the longest time but have just finally got around to doing so now. Kung Pao chicken first originated in central-western China and has become very popular in the United States. This is the westernized version of kung pao chicken consisting of wok fried chicken pieces, roasted peanuts, scallions and a spicy sauce. For those of you that have been waiting for a Chinese chicken recipe that doesn’t use a deep fryer – this is it.
