LOOKING for: Chinese brown sauce

debby_1January 30, 2009

Would anyone happen to know how to make the sauce or gravy that is used in Chinese resturants for dishes such as pepper steak and beef and brocolli. I love that stuff and every time I've tried to make it, it's been a flop. Any help appreciated.

Pretty easy...

3/4 cup light beef broth
1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon oyster sauce
1 teaspoon dark soy sauce
1/2 teaspoon sugar
1 tablespoon cornstarch

Combine the above ingredients in order and bring to a boil, stirring.

Makes about 1/3 cup.

When I make anything with broccoli, though, I go a little heavier on the oyster sauce and much lighter on the soy.
