Sticky Beef & Mushroom Stir-Fry with Good Chow Soy Dipping Sauce


If you have an insatiable appetite but less than half an hour to whip something up, you’re in the right place.

When you get home and cooking dinner is the last thing on your mind, look to the delectable Good Chow Soy Dipping Sauce for inspiration. It’s a perfect match for your dumplings, your sushi, or your salads but we love it best in a speedy stir-fry, that’s packed with veggies (use whatever you have leftover in your fridge) and garnished with a smattering of toasty sesame seeds and fresh spring onions. The soy base is comfortingly familiar and the subtle sweet note will tie your dish together in an instant.

Here, we use a dash of Good Chow’s Soy Dipping Sauce (available in the My Food Bag Kitchen) to make a seemingly simple stir-fry a thing of beauty. If you’re not feeling the beef, swap it out for any protein of your choice. Some crispy tofu, a sunny-side-up egg or chicken strips will all work well here.
