Stir Fry Help Needed!

Monday, October 24, 2011

I have been desperately trying to find a stir fry sauce that I like. I love stir fry, and I love the ones I've had while eating out at restaurants. But trying to find a restaurant with gluten-free friendly sauces has been next to impossible. So, I've been trying out different recipes and I still haven't found that one that makes me go WOW!

I'm still looking.... So I'm asking, SparkFriends, do you have a go-to stir fry recipe that you love that you'd care to share? I don't like soy sauce (and can't eat it anyway since it's not GF), but I'm still trying. Let me know what you like!

    Ginger and Garlic make a nice sauce.

  San-J makes a very good gluten-free soy sauce. That was one of my biggest disappointments when I was diagnosed with celiac disease, so finding a soy sauce I can have was great! I think Kikkoman makes one, too.

    Coconut aminos?? That sounds so good! I'm going to have to look for that.

    I can't eat soy sauce either, but I found something you might like! Look for Coconut Aminos. They have it at Whole Foods in their coconut products section, usually in the produce section. It's where the coconut flour etc is. Coconut Aminos is a brown liquid that you can substitute for soy sauce. I use it with rice, shrimp & veggies and throw in some spices like garlic, ginger, red pepper flakes etc. whatever you can doesn't taste exactly like soy sauce, not a strong flavor like soy sauce has.
I get really frustrated trying to find ways to make a sauce of any sort that is gluten & dairy free. I get so tired of dry meat and dry rice etc.
Can you have coconut yet??

    Thanks for the tip! I don't eat meat, so now I'm Googling vegan gluten-free sauces for inspiration. I guess there's a mushroom sauce that's similar to oyster sauce. I don't like mushrooms. Wow, I'm really making this so much harder than it needs to be! Why does Chinese food taste so good at a restaurant and so weird at my house? lol

    Last night I wanted Chinese. So I stir fried just some meat since we were out of veggies that I could stir fry.

I just took a port steak and cut it up and put it in a skillet. Used some oil - we only had olive oil. Then I used Oyster Sauce, 1/2 tsp sugar, garlic powder, onion powder and salt. I did use soy sauce but you don't have to. I think the oyster sauce and sugar did it for me.

Here is a link to a blog that shows some gluten free oyster sauce. I don't know how available it is in super markets but you could look around?
