Best Keto Stir Fry Sauce

Stir Fry meals are one of the quickest, freshest and healthiest meals to put on the table if your eating low carb, like our Keto Beef Stir Fry. Many store bought stir fry sauces contain lots of sugar, a super no-no for Keto or diabetic cooking. This sauce gives you all the flavor you need. Using a low carb thickener called xanthan gum, you can have the same thick sauce that coats everything…just like take-out or the bottled variety.

Ingredients for Keto Stir Fry Sauce

  • Soy Sauce (or Tamari Soy Sauceor Coconut Aminos) – a staple in Asian sauce. Look for a soy sauce with no added sugar. We love this Lite Soy Sauce with 1 gram of net carbs per tablespoon.
  • Minced Garlic – we love to keep a jar of our favorite organic pre-minced garlic in the fridge for convenience. You can definitely mince fresh garlic if you prefer!
  • Ginger – peel and mince a finger of fresh ginger, or make cooking easy, like we try to, by keeping a tube of fresh minced ginger in the refrigerator. Most large supermarkets stock it in the produce cooler.
  • Sriracha – easy to distribute just the right amount of heat throughout the sauce. If you don’t have it, substitute a pinch of red pepper flakes.
  • Low Carb Brown Sugar – adds sweetness to offset the natural salt in the soy sauce. A brown sugar substitute that’s soft and has tasty maple flavor like Sukrin Gold is our favorite.
  • Toasted Sesame Oil – an essential for flavor and a classic ingredient in Asian cooking.
  • Xanthan Gum – works the same way as cornstarch to thicken sauces and soups, but without any carbs!

What is Xanthan Gum?

Xanthan Gum is a food additive used for thickening and stabilizing a variety of foods and baked goods. You probably already have some in your salad dressing, soups and gluten-free products.

First discovered in 1963, xanthan gum is actually a soluble fiber, which are carbohydrates that your body cannot break down. It’s made from sugar that’s fermented by a bacteria called Xanthomonas campestris. Technically, xanthan gum does contain carbs. However, carbs are offset by an equal amount of fiber, for a total of 0 grams of net carbs!

Ways to use this Stir-Fry Sauce

This delicious keto stir fry sauce is super versatile. Pour it over veggies for a quick and healthy snack like cauliflower or broccoli stir fry. For dinners, we love this sauce for meal prep.

All you need to do is throw leftover veggies and your favorite protein in the wok to heat and pour over the tasty sauce. Dinners ready!
