Karo® Light Corn Syrup
minced fresh ginger
Great recipe. I didn't have exactly the right ingredients, I didn't have sesame oil, dry sherry or minced ginger. I replaced the sesame oil with veg oil, white vinegar for the sherry, and ground ginger for the minced. It turned out amazing.
I halved this, but felt there was too much cornstarch - it came out thick. Would recommend using less, even if this is a corn starch company recipe. :) I used rice wine instead of sherry, and left out the corn syrup. The flavor was very good though!
I thought this was a very good sauce. I have to chuckle at all the reviewers who say it was too thick;the recipe was posted by Argo, the maker of most of the corn starch in America's kitchens today. Anyway, I made it exactly according to the recipe--just happened to have all the ingredients on hand--and thought it was good but I think next time I will do what some others did and use less corn syrup and more garlic and ginger, as well as some oyster sauce if I have some on hand. But I definitely will make this again!
My husband loved this sauce so much, he said he would rather have this than go out to our favorite asian restaurant. We were looking for a garlic stir fry sauce, so I nearly tripled the garlic and followed the remaining suggestions of others: cutting the corn starch in half, adding only a fraction of the corn syrup, being generous on the red pepper flakes, and increasing the ginger by about half. This is definitely a keeper that we'll use often.
SO GOOD!! Followed other reviewers & 1/2ed the corn starch, 1/2ed the corn syrup, upped the red pepper by about 4x, & added 2 T oyster sauce. Served over wok-veggies (bok choy, carrots, broccoli, celery, tomato, green pepper, & onion, stir-fried in olive oil, sherry & hot oil) & brown rice. Will definitely be making again!
Very Salty! Not very Healthy!
This is the best stir fry sauce I've come across on AllRecipes! I followed the recipe exactly (although omitted corn syrup b/c I simply don't keep it in my pantry), and I thought it was wonderful. It had the perfect balance of sweet and salty... definately NOT bland!
This is great, I didn't have any oil so I added 2 TBS of peanut butter. It made it more of a Thai dish however, my whole family loved it.
