I love making stir-fry because you can do all your prep-work before hand and then when it comes time to cook you only need 1 pan!
The sauce in this stir-fry has a sweet flavor to it but isn’t heavy or thick at all. It could be used on a variety of stir-fry ingredients so be adventurous and switch it up.
