fried rice and stuff

Post by timos » Wed May 15, 2019 8:36 am

im on a huge fried rice/ stir fry kick again... im working on the book stir fry to the skys edge but I do not always have time to make my own sauce ...

can anyone give me suggestion on some good actual real soy sauce and other high quality sauces? I dont think my grocer has them, id prefer to order from amazon.

Sorry no pics, yet!

Hello Tim,

We don't do a lot of stir fry but when we do we use a commonly available Yoshida Sauce. This might not be what you're looking for but - it's all I have.

How do you like the book? I might need to check it out, we love us some stir fry and fried rice around here! Sauces are the biggest hang up for me too. An Asian market just opened up down the street, going to be checking it out soon!

It’s decidedly non-Asian, but I accidentally discovered that substituting duck fat for oil really adds a nice mouth feel to fried rice. I’ve been doing it since. Doesn’t work with stir frys though.

I figured out I'm allergic to nuts and soy - this is making Asian cooking a real challenge. In fact it's making cooking more challenging period. Luckily fish sauce, oyster sauce, Lee & Perrins, and a few others are soy free so I can work around a lot of it.
