Cheap, Good Tasting Stir Fry Sauce

Found on  FOOD.COM  Go there for more details. is one of my favorite places to learn to cook.  This stir fry sauce it’s  really good stuff!  The only mod that I might make is the vinegar.  BUT.. the vinegar turns out very good.  I put lots of Red Pepper flakes in mine.
At first I thought “eh too much vinegar.”   It tastes good on stir fry just as written.  Mine is still watery,  but I haven’t tried heating it up yet,  I had some stir fry vegetables, but ran out of stir fry sauce oh my!  This recipe saved the day.. and it’s tasty stuff.  It’s a good starting point.
