How To Make Stir Fry Sauce
Making homemade stir fry sauce or “brown sauce” is easier than you think. It calls for only a few ingredients: oyster sauce, soy sauce, sugar, water, and corn starch. The corn starch thickens the sauce, so the stir fry sauce clings to the meat, and every bite is bursting with deep flavors. Corn starch is an important ingredient; it’s also used to “velvet” the protein in stir-fries, for example: chicken, pork, beef, fish or shrimp, etc. for the authentic flavors and textures in Chinese cooking.

Chinese Cooking Tips and Techniques
An authentic Chinese stir fry dish should never be doused in too much sauce; the sauce should barely cling to the ingredients. For the best results, you have to mix the ingredients of the stir fry sauce in a small bowl before using. Before adding the sauce into the stir fry, quickly stir it so nothing settles at the bottom of the bowl. Also, you don’t want to use too much corn starch as you don’t want a thick and gooey sauce. Spatula plays a very important role in the cooking process. Use it to continuously stir and toss the ingredients in a back and forth motions.
