3-Ingredient Stir Fry Sauce

3-Ingredient Stir Fry Sauce

Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 15 minutes
Serves: 1 cup (or one four-person batch of stir-fry)


For the 3-ingredient stir fry sauce:

  • 1/3 cup soy sauce (or gluten-free tamari or coconut aminos)
  • 2 tablespoons honey (or vegan-friendly maple syrup)
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • Optional additions
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 lime, juiced

For the stir fry:

  • 2 cups cooked rice or an 8-ounce package of noodles
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil, plus additional as needed
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon minced ginger
  • 1 green onion, chopped
  • 1 pound protein (chicken, beef, pork, shrimp, or firm tofu), cut into slices or 1-inch cubes
  • 6 cups chopped vegetables
  • Chopped green onions, cilantro, and sesame seeds, for garnish


  1. In a small bowl or mason jar, whisk together the soy sauce, honey, and cornstarch. Add in any of the optional additions, if using. Store the sauce in the refrigerator until you're ready to use.
  2. When you're ready to make stir fry, cook the rice or noodles according to the package directions. You'll also want to chop all the meat and vegetables. The stir fry experience will go by very quickly, so it's important to prepare the ingredients in advance so they're ready to add to the wok.
  3. In a wok or a large frying pan, heat the sesame oil over high heat. Add the garlic, ginger, and green onion and cook until they're fragrant, about one minute.
  4. Add the protein and cook until it's cooked through, anywhere from one to five minutes depending on the size of the slices. Remove the cooked protein to a bowl and set aside.
  5. If the wok is very dry, add an extra teaspoon of sesame oil before adding the chopped vegetables. Cook for one to five minutes, until the vegetables are tender.
  6. Return the cooked meat to the pan along with the prepared stir fry sauce. Cook for three minutes, until the sauce is warmed through and becomes clear and thick. If the sauce is too thick, add a splash of water.
  7. Toss the noodles with the stir fry before serving, or divide the stir fry into four portions and serve it over the cooked rice. Garnish each plate with chopped green onions, cilantro, and sesame seeds. Serve immediately.
