Szechuan Sauce

If you make sit fry's, then this is a must have for you. This is spicy, but not so much that you cannot enjoy your meal. I like spice, do I do not steam rolling out of my ears. Chop your veggies and add this, you will be in heaven.

3 T vegetable broth
1 T cornstarch
1/2 cup tamari
1 T catsup
3 T chili sauce
1 t sugar (or any sweetener)
1/4-1/2 hot pepper flakes
Combine broth and cornstarch (male sure broth is cool or room temperature), mix well. Stir in tamari, catsup, chili sauce, sugar and pepper flakes, mix well.

How simple is that. I feel like I need to type more or talk about this recipe more...something. But alas, it is a simple recipe and it speaks for itself.

I do not use soy sauce. But feel free to use soy sauce. And you should give Tamari a try. Do not get me wrong, I have used soy sauce in a pinch, but the taste difference is sooooo much better.

It is aged longer, giving the sauce a deeper richer taste.
