We absolutely love making veggie stir fry on our homestead!  It’s an almost weekly dinner, as it’s super simple to make and great to serve over rice or noodles.  Stir fries are versatile, inexpensive, great for using up older vegetables, and taste amazing with this sweet & spicy sauce.

I found that making my own stir fry sauce is so much better than buying the store-bought stuff loaded with preservatives.  Like making your own salad dressing, making stir fry sauce is SO easy and takes just a few minutes to throw together. This sauce has sweet brown sugar, fresh lime juice, and chili flakes for a bit of spice.

    This recipe is so much better than the bottled sauce I’ve bought at the store. I wouldn’t try to make my own before
