Came across a wonderful article in Food Network magazine about easy ways to stir fry. You pick your protein, sauce, and any veggies you want to add in. The possibilities are endless. Talk about takeout makeover! I had some steam fresh brown rice and shrimp at home and this recipe was perfect to create the at home version for shrimp fried rice. Most of the sauces ask for specific ingredients sauce as rice wine vinegar and hosin sauce which you can get at any food store in the ethnic section.
For the sweet and sour sauce:
Mix 3/4 cup of chicken broth
2 teapsoons constarch
1/4 cup ketchup
2 tablespoon of hosin sauce- comparable to a BBQ sauce.
2 teaspoons of soy sauce ( I used low sodium)
3 tablespoon rice vinegar
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon of salt.
TIP- For an extra sweeter taste, you use a brown sugar vs. regular sugar.
1. Mix the above ingredients in a bowl. Set aside.
2. With olive oil, cook protein in a pan. Add vegetables and rice or noodles. Cover for about 5 minutes.
3. Pour sauce in pan. Cook for about 5 more minutes.
