Perfect Stir Fry Sauce Recipe

I love stir frys. They are quick, easy and delicious, as well as a great way to use up leftover veg.

Over the years, I’ve tried a million stir fry sauce recipes, and this has to be the best of all of them. It’s aromatic, sweet, sticky, nutty and salty; everything you want in a stir fry sauce. You can have it with any meat, or with poached eggs as I have in the below picture.

So, without further ado, here’s the recipe. The below makes enough to serve one person.


  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh coriander
  • 1 tablespoon dark soy sauce
  • 1 red chilli
  • 1 small garlic clove
  • 1 tablespoon peanut butter
  • 1 teaspoon of golden syrup
  • 1 chunk of ginger, about the size of a large garlic clove
  • 1 tablespoon mirin rice wine
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp chinese 5 spice



This is such a simple recipe that it’s almost not worth writing down. All you have to do is:

    1. Finely chop all of the ingredients that need it, and combine everything together.
    2. Leave for at least 20 minutes to all infuse together
    3. Add at the early stages of cooking your stir fry, at a high heat. It’s important that you evaporate all the alcohol off the rice wine.
    4. Enjoy!
