Vietnamese Stir-fry Sauce

  • SERVINGS: makes about 1 3/4 cups
  • FAST

Charles Phan uses this unbelievably simple, three-ingredient sauce in almost every stir-fry. Its key ingredient is a fish sauce that lends a faintly nutty, richly pungent and quintessentially Vietnamese character to the dish.

  1. 1 1/2 cups chicken stock, preferably homemade
  2. 1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon Asian fish sauce
  3. 1 tablespoon sugar
  1. In a small saucepan, bring the stock to a boil. Remove from the heat and add the fish sauce and sugar; stir until the sugar is dissolved. Let cool.
Make Ahead The sauce can be refrigerated for up to 2 days. Serve With Crisp Green Beans with Pork Belly.
