Simple Stir Fry Sauce

Published: February 25, 2023

This sauce is super easy to make and can be used in any stir fry.

Recipe Notes:

Broth: Use any broth that you want! In this recipe I used GoBio! Chicken Bouillon powder but any broth will do.

Soy Sauce: If you don’t have dark soy sauce then this recipe will still work without it! I like to use a little bit of dark soy sauce to add colour. You definitely need low sodium soy sauce or the sauce will be too salty. I always have both in my fridge. The brands I use are the Rooster Dark Soy Sauce and Lee Kum Kee Less Sodium Soy Sauce.

Chili Garlic Sauce: This sauce is pretty spicy so if you don’t want a spicy sauce then omit this. You can also use siracha or crushed red pepper flakes instead of the chili garlic sauce.

Variations: I used this sauce to make stir fried tofu but it can be used in any vegetable, chicken or beef stir fry! It’s great served over rice or noodles.

Spicy Fried Noodles

Published: November 1, 2022

The best quick lunch recipe that only takes 20 minutes to make! I make this recipe several times a week because it’s so easy to throw together and I always have all the ingredients on hand. You can have the noodles on their own or add any toppings you want.

Recipe Notes:

Noodles: I like using these wide ramen noodles. I don’t know what they’re called I just found them in the Asian section of my grocery store one day. You can also use normal ramen noodles, which I have done many times before! My favourite brand is Shin Ramyun.

Broth: I like beef broth, but it would be good with any broth that you want. I have made this recipe with beef, chicken, and vegetable broth. My go to broth is GoBio Organic Bouillon Cubes.

Soy Sauce: If you use full sodium soy sauce for this recipe it’s going to be way too salty! I made this mistake before.

Garlic & Ginger: Fresh garlic & ginger make such a difference. You can leave ginger out if you don’t have any but it’s best not to skip the garlic!

Chili Garlic Sauce: I always use chili garlic sauce, but you can use siracha, chili oil, or crushed red pepper flakes instead. I actually used a little bit of chili oil to cook the garlic in too because I love it spicy.

Brown Sugar: You can use honey instead. I have made it with honey many times.

Oyster sauce: You can leave the oyster sauce out if you don’t have any, but I love the flavour it adds. I make this recipe without it all the time.

Toppings: You can serve these noodles without any toppings at all. My go to topping is a fried egg and avocado. Some other toppings that I love are kimchi, dried seaweed chips, or cilantro.
