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.
