How to cook with stir fry sauce:
I like to add my stir-fry sauce to the wok once my meat and veggies are almost fully cooked, but you can really add it in any time while cooking.
I typically use this sauce for:
Chinese fried cauliflower rice–
fry cauliflower rice in olive oil, until tender. Add a bit of stir fry sauce until fully cooked.
Chicken/beef/shrimp teriyaki stir fry or sesame chicken–
Fry chicken in a wok, until mostly cooked. Add in veggies, such as broccoli and green beans (keto friendly). Finally add in the stir fry sauce, stir for a few more minutes, then serve!
Top with (optional) sesame seeds.
