We’ve recently revamped the way our family eats.  I’ve always thought we were relatively healthy, but together my husband and I decided we needed to take our approach to healthy eating a step further.  We’ve almost totally eliminated refined sugars, gluten (my husband and my boys all have problems with gluten), and have doubled the amount of vegetables we eat.

Now, dinners consist of a huge portion of vegetables with the occasional meat.  One of our favorite meals is stir fry.  It is so easy to make and so hard to mess up! LOL

As a Hormel Family Extended Blogger, I occasionally receive samples of products from their family brands.  A few months back I received a bottle of House of Tsang Stir Fry Sauce.  Now, I’ve had Asian roomates, consumed a lot of ethnic food in my adulthood, and consider myself a fair judge of quality and authenticity when it comes to Asian foods sold in American grocery stores.  House of Tsang is so good that I now have three varieties of their stir fry sauces in my refrigerator.

House of Tsang Stir Fry Sauce makes eating a healthy, veggie-filled dinner so easy and so yummy!

If you’re a stir fry newbie, check out the recipe below.  The recipe makes a great guide for creating the perfect stir fry dinner.  Feel free to make your own additions or substitutions to suit your family’s tastes.

*Note: I mentioned above that we’ve almost eliminated gluten.   These sauces are NOT gluten free–most contain soy sauce which has gluten. We make an exception for marinades and these sauces since it is such a small amount of gluten.

  1. When we lived in Texas, mom bought a lot of different House of Tsang sauces and oils. They're soooo good! If I didn't think it would kill my husband I would buy their hot oil and use it every time I make stir fry. What's your favorite one Amy?
  2. So far we've tried the: Classic Stir Fry Korean Teriyaki Stir Fry Szechuan Spicy Stir Fry My favorite is the Szechuan Spicy, but The Husband thought it was too spicy. He's a pansy when it comes to spice though...kind of like your husband. LOL He likes the Korean. I think the Classic is okay. I love to add a couple teaspoons of brown sugar to the Classic Stir Fry sauce. Makes it pretty yummy!

    wow - this recipe seems so easy! And so healthy! I always thought stir fries are so complicated!
    • Oh, no, not at all complicated. That's one reason I love it so much. It's what I make when I don't have the time or the energy to make something complex. The bulk of the time is used to cook the rice (which is hands-off) and cut the veggies.

    yum! im making stir fry this week!
  5. I have never heard of House of Tsang Stir Fry Sauce but I will find some right away. I would like to include more veggies in my familyies diet. This recipe is now copied and saved in my own "recipe box". Thank you so much. My daughter is yeast intolerant, so I have to really search for sauces without a yeast perservative. I have written to Hormel to find out if their sauces are yeast free. Thanks for introducting me to this sauce.

    I love making stir fry's! The only problem is that the kids don't! Lucky I got them to eat a Spring roll which has vegetables in them. I will have to cut the amount of veggies in this for portion sixes for me and My husband. It looks real good thanks for sharing
    • That's about where my kids are too. So I'm like you, when I make stir fry the kids get egg rolls, rice, and then they pick two pieces of vegetables out of the stir fry pan that they want to try. The amounts I gave are what my husband and I eat. We occasionally have a little leftovers, but not much. But I'm nursing right now, and he's...well...a man so we kind of eat a lot. :)

    Now THIS is my kind of recipe - and my favorite way to sneak as many veggies into a meal as I can - not to mention it's endlessly versatile and excellent way to use all those little odds and ends we call leftovers... And I agree too about House of Tsang sauces* are fabulous* and I always have at several (at least) ofthem on hand (and my Honey/Hubby agrees that MY "stir fries" are better than carry-out (for sure!) and even better than we've enjoyed at most of the finer Asian restaurant in town. Actually, I just looked in the Kitchen (& pantry & fridge) to check out what House of Tsang essentials we have on hand and it looks like we're even more hooked on them than I realized! Here's what I found: Seasame Oil, Chile Sesame Oil and Mongolian Stir-Fry Oil. Szechuan Spicy Stir-Fry Sauce, Low-Sodium Ginger Soy Sauce, "Oyster" Sauce, and a Brown (Black?) Bean Sauce! Hubby and me both like to be creative in the kitchen - and for the past couple of years we've been really in to "Asian" cuisine:. At first we were mostly experimenting in Thai and Szechuan - but lately were REALLY into Korean and Vietnames flavors. Thanks for the recipe - and reminding me not only of how versatile and yummy House of Tsang products are - but how fast and easy it is to to make healthy and delicious meals in no time.

  10. Sandy VanHoey says
    I am going to have to try that stir fry sauce. We too have decided to be eating much healthier and yesterday when I shopped, I bought so many veggies so I have all of this now, except that sauce. I bought the skinless chicken breast and since we love chicken, I'll use that. Guess it was meant for me to read this today...thank you

    I love making stir fry meals. They are so much fun & the combonations are endless! I have never tried House of Tsang Stir Fry Sauce, but will add it to my shopping list & give it a go!
  12. I love, Love, LOVE stir frys!!! They're quick and easy and always taste great no matter what combination you have.
  13. I have to say the 'classic stir fry' didn't go over well with us. To soy/salty tasting. But! We are addicted to the General Tsaos. It is amazing. We have this weekly. I seriously can't say enough good things about it. I have told my family and friends and they are hooked now also ;)
  14. The General Tsaos is the best! I have told my family and friends. Seriously, you won't be disappointed.
