Your recipe is very similar to mine except I use lo sodium versions, white wine (never have sherry) and a bit more seasonings. Its all about what we have on hand/use regularly when it comes to recipes for me. I often skip otherwise interesting sounding recipes if there is something I don not usually keep on hand or at least purchase errztically.
It's probably ridiculous adding to this thread, considering it's so old, but I found it, so maybe someone else will. I came across it when looking for a low carb/nsa stir fry sauce. I saw "SB" and I just HAD to check it out. I was already a member here, although haven't been active. So I see a few like versions of this recipe with the chicken broth. I do use organic low sodium chicken broth on other occasions, but I'd prefer to keep something handy that works for vegetarian dishes too, so I was glad to see a variation of the recipe without the chicken broth. And chicken broth doesn't seem right if the dish isn't a chicken dish. I make a dish to have over brown rice with veggies & a soy product beef strips. I wouldn't use "cooking wine" either.. EVER! As you said Debby, "blech"!! I'd prefer just a good white (or red) wine... and ONLY if the wine is fit for drinking. I'd never use a wine that wasn't at its best for cooking. If it's not fit to drink, it's not fit to cook with. But, and I wouldn't use this for just any dish, but I've found a wonderful flavor in dry vermouth for some dishes. I don't know how that will work for this stir fry, but I will try it. I'm really glad to have found this. I'm heading out to the store to pick up some fresh ginger and green onions.DebbyC wrote:I keep a bottle of sherry and marsala in my fridge - they last a long time and both add incredible flavor. If I didn't have wine on hand, I would use always chicken broth before buying ANY kind of "cooking wine" blech!!!
I just wanted to let you know that I made your stir fry sauce last night and made some stir fried brown rice and vegetables to go with it (with oldpjams stir fried rice directions from another post) and I LOVED IT (and so did my family). It was SOOOOO good that right after I finished eating, I went right back to the stove and made a few more servings to keep in a bottle in my fridge (like you recommended). So it's in there right now! Thanks!
