  • ½ cup low sodium chicken broth or vegetable broth
  • cup low sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 teaspoons sesame oil
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh ginger
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • crushed red pepper flakes, sriracha or sweet chili sauce optional, for spicy sauce


  • Combine all ingredients in a jar or bowl. Whisk or shake (with a tight fitting lid on the jar) until fully combined.
  • Use immediately or store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to one week.
  • To use stir fry sauce to make stir fry: Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a large skillet or wok. Add 1 pound of protein (cubed chicken, sliced beef, shrimp, tofu, chickpeas, etc.) and cook until browned and almost cooked through. Transfer the protein to a clean plate. Add 1 more tablespoon of oil and 6 cups of chopped vegetables (broccoli, snow peas, carrots, bell peppers, zucchini, asparagus, etc.) to the pan. Stir fry until crisp-tender. Return your protein to the pan. Add 1 cup of stir fry sauce (this full recipe) and cook for 2 to 3 minutes, until the sauce has thickened, stirring to evenly distribute the sauce. Serve over cooked rice.


  • To make gluten-free, use gluten-free soy sauce, gluten-free tamari, or gluten-free coconut aminos.
  • For vegan stir fry sauce use vegetable broth instead of chicken broth and pure maple syrup instead of honey.
