An easy homemade stir-fry sauce is the perfect base for this weeknight dish. It comes together quickly, but tastes like you fussed. —Adeline Russell, Hartford, Wisconsin

"I had no plans for dinner last night so I found this recipe and decided to make it. I used fresh vegetables and fresh ginger and garlic. I also reduced the sugar to 1 teaspoon of coconut sugar. I made it with coconut rice. It was amazing. I have added this to my repertoire of recipes and shall be making it from time to time. Thank you for the recipe."

"Normally I don't follow the recipes but today I did and my family loved it. I used a frozen bag of stir fried veggies and some sticky rice. A great easy Monday night dinner"

"Made this for the second time tonight and will be using this sauce recipe from now on - minus the red pepper flakes - we used those the first time and thought it was too spicy. This time I just used vegetables I had on hand, snow peas, asparagus, red pepper, onions and water chestnuts. It was great. I think you could use any combination of vegetables and meats and it would be good because the sauce is so good."

"This recipe rocked my socks!! I had leftover ginger pork which worked perfectly, along with all the fresh veggies I had on hand (peas, cabbage, carrots, onion). I also used fresh minced garlic and ginger root! It's quickly and easy to throw together, and the flavor definitely beats takeout! I doubled the sauce recipe, and also substituted flour for the cornstarch, and it came out great!"

"The sauce for this stir fry is very good! I added snow peas, mushrooms, onion, yellow bell pepper, and carrots as oppose to the frozen vegetable blend. I served it with brown rice to make it a well-rounded quick and healthy dinner."
