When it comes to stir fries, if you’re like me, you don’t always start with a recipe. You start with a bunch of odds and ends of meat and/or vegetables that you decide to cook up in to one dish – a stir fry. What you really need then, is a quick and easy stir fry sauce recipe to go with it. Right?!

I’ve brought together 40 Stir Fry Sauce Recipes right here for you, that you can bookmark or print to have handy for those times when you need a stir fry sauce. Scroll down to find the recipes, but to start, here’s my best stir fry tips:

The Basic Stir Fry Formula

When it comes to stir fries, the basic formula is typically:

PROTEIN + VEGETABLES + AROMATICS + SAUCE

That said, when it comes to stir fries, there are no rules. So be creative! Use what you have on hand, what you like and experiment!

Stocking a Stir-Fry Ready Pantry

Here are my recommended pantry items, to always be stir fry ready!

Fresh garlic
Fresh ginger (you can keep it in the freezer and easily grate it as needed!)
Asian Chilli Garlic Sauce
Sambal Oelek
Soy Sauce (a variety is nice – light, dark, low-sodium and regular. Tamari is a great gluten free alternative for soy sauce)
Sesame Oil (you can also add toasted sesame oil if you want to expand your pantry)
Hoisin Sauce
Oyster Sauce
Fish Sauce (vegetarian and vegan ones are even available now!)
White Vinegar
Coconut Milk
Cornstarch (or Arrowroot Powder, for a gluten free option), for thickening sauces
Chicken stock (I always have some on hand. I love the Better than Bouillon™ stock concentrate, so I can mix up as needed in small quantities)

My 10 Best Tips for a Perfect Stir Fry

  • 1) Cooking order matters. Uncooked meat should be cooked first. I typically cook it to almost done, then remove it to a plate while I cook the vegetables. I then add the mat back in after the vegetables are cooked. Different vegetables cook for different lengths of time. Carrots are the ones that are the most typical stir fry addition that need extra cooking time. Add them first, followed by softer vegetables (peppers, onion etc)., followed by aromatics (ginger, garlic etc) and finally greens (that just need wilting)
  • 2) Don’t overcrowd your wok or vegetables will sweat/steam instead of fry. If you have a lot to cook, cook in batches and remove to a plate, then bring it all together at the end.
  • 3) Watch the sodium – both broth and soy sauce can be loaded with it, so consider using low-sodium version of one or both, then adding salt at the end and only if necessary.
  • 4) Don’t forget the little things – garlic, ginger, sesame seeds, green onions, nuts (peanuts/cashews) are all great additions to your stir fry for flavouring or garnish.
  • 5) Don’t forget the noodles (or rice) – stir fries don’t have to be meat and veg. There are so many varieties of noodles and rice these days. Experiment and find some great combinations. Grains are another great option.
  • 6) Don’t forget the citrus – a squeeze of lemon or orange juice to a sauce will really brighten the flavours!
  • 7) Keep it hot! In most cases, your wok should be heated over no less than medium-high heat, so things cook quickly. Keep your food moving by stirring, to prevent scorching.
  • 8) Cut your vegetables with the length of cooking time in mind. For example, to cook carrots more quickly, cut them as small as possible (matchstick shape works great). Broccoli is another vegetable that takes longer to cook in a stir fry. Either cut in to smaller pieces or blanch/microwave a bit first before adding to the stir fry.Things that cook quickly can be kept larger.
  • 9) Be sure to use a cooking oil with a high smoke point. A lot of people are experimenting with coconut oil, but it has a fairly low smoke point. A good quality extra virgin olive oil is a better choice. Or look for avocado oil, which is a healthier oil with the highest smoke point of them all!
  • 10) Use your sauce as a marinade! In many cases, you can marinade your meat in your sauce first. Be sure to cover and refrigerate. Drain and reserve the marinade from meat before cooking meat, then add the reserved marinade to your hot skillet and cook the sauce thoroughly.

Velveting your meat

Ever wonder how Asian restaurants achieve such tender meat? They use a process called Velveting to prepare their meat. It’s an extra step, but definitely produces wonderful results.

The process of Velveting involves marinating your meat pieces for 30 minutes in a basic velveting marinade of:

Basic Velveting Marinade (double, as necessary):
1 Tbsp. soy sauce
1 tsp. Chinese rice wine, dry sherry or white vinegar
2 tsp. cold water
2 tsp. cornstarch

Combine all these ingredients well with your meat. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes.

After 30 minutes, cook the meat for 1 minute in boiling water or oil. (*I prefer the water method). Remove to a plate and set aside to add to your stir fry or do ahead and refrigerate. Be sure to add the velveted and pre-cooked meat near the end of your stir fry, just long enough to warm it, so it doesn’t over-cook.
