    hels's Note:

    After an emergency involving an out of date sauce & relatives coming round for dinner, I spent the next few minutes investigating the contents of my mum's cupboards & then every chinese cookbook we had to find a sauce that I could make in a couple of minutes. In the end, I found that the following ingredients were common to most recipes. If I hadn't been feeding my dad as well, I would have added something from the following - garlic, ginger, spring onion or chili pepper. As it was, I added the sugar instead to richen the sauce. I used the medium-dry sherry that my mum "cooks" with - although the recommended alternative for rice wine appears to be dry sherry.

      I didn't have any rice wine or sherry, or dark brown sugar, so I just used soy sauce, cornstarch, and some water, and added several cloves of garlic, powdered ginger and some red pepper flakes, and it came out great. Thanks!

      I really didn't have the amount of ingredients to do other Stir Fry sauces, so when I found this one I added a couple of drops of sesame oil and a clove of minced garlic. I did use water instead of stock but found that this was very tasty. Thanks for a posting this recipe.
