The Best Sauce To Ever Go In Your Mouth

This is my go to quick and healthy recipe. I use it at least once a week and The Mister loves it so much that I usually make a double batch. You can use whatever vegetables and proteins you would like. I've used this sauce with everything-- shrimp, beef, chicken, peppers, snow peas, water chestnuts, broccoli, carrots.... The list goes on and on. This recipe is just for the sauce, so that you can make the stir fry to your own preference. I usually gravitate to chicken with bell peppers, red onion, carrots, broccoli, and water chestnuts since we keep those items prepped in the house at all times. I also like mine way spicier, so I add cock sauce (i.e. sriracha). I would show you a picture of the awesomeness that is this sauce, but lets be real here-- I suck at taking food pictures. I admire others ability to make food porn, as I cannot. A skill I definitely must learn.

3 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
2 teaspoons brown sugar
2 teaspoons sesame oil
2 teaspoons cornstarch
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh ginger
1 jalapeño pepper, cored, seeded, and finely chopped

In a small bowl, whisk together the soy sauce, vinegar, sugar, sesame oil, and cornstarch.
In a skillet over medium high heat, cook your protein. Remove protein and cook veggies of your choice. Remove veggies from skillet.

In the same skillet over medium high heat, add the garlic, ginger, and jalapeño and cook, stirring constantly, until fragrant, 30 seconds to 1 minute.

Add the soy sauce mixture, bring to a boil, and then reduce the heat to medium and simmer until thickened, 1 to 2 minutes.

Return the protein and veg to the pan and stir to coat in the sauce.  If you choose to, serve immediately over white or brown rice.

Do you have a healthy go to recipe? I would love to know it!
