I'M CRAVING CHINESE TAKEOUT SIMPLE GARLIC SAUCE
INGREDIENTS2 Tbsp Rice Vinegar
2 Tbsp Sugar
2 Tbsp Soy Sauce or Tamari
2 tsp Rice Wine (Mirin) or dry sherry
1/2 tsp Sriracha or any hot sauce
1/4 tsp sesame oil
1 1/2 tsp corn starch + 1 Tbsp water
1 Tbsp vegetable or peanut oil
3-4 cloves of garlic, minced
PROCESSCombine rice vinegar, sugar, soy sauce, rice wine, hot sauce and sesame oil in a bowl. Stir to combine.
In another bowl dissolve corn starch and water and mix well breaking up the clumps so it’s a smooth paste.
In a saucepan heat the 1 Tbsp of oil over medium heat and add garlic. Cool until fragrant and just starting to cook through. Be careful not to burn the garlic.
Mix your sauce ingredients again and add to pan. Bring to a low boil. Add cornstarch slowly and mix well. Turn heat down to low and keep warm.
At this point you have a super simple brown garlic sauce that you can now toss on any steamed veggies, tofu or meat of your choice. Serve over steamed white rice or my simple fried rice recipe.
