What makes this sauce sweet and tangy

I love Chinese food, but I don’t love all the sugar in a typical stir fry recipe. 

This sauce is similar to a sweet teriyaki-style sauce, but made with erythritol sweetener. 

I use granulated brown erythritol (Swerve) sweetener, sesame oil and red pepper flakes to make this recipe awesome. Also, try our keto sweet chili sauce!

How do I make thick stir fry sauce? 

To thicken the sauce, add an extra 1/4 teaspoon xanthan gum to the recipe.

How do I thin the sauce?

If you prefer a thin sauce, omit the xanthan gum from this recipe.

Once you’ve added too much xanthan gum, you really won’t be able to thin it back out again.

How do I make this gluten free? 

Before buying chicken broth, check the label if you are sensitive to gluten. 

There are several brands, like Swanson, Kirkland and Imagine Organic, that have gluten-free options available.

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.
