Stir Fry Sauce

Yesterday we were in want of stir fry as we had all the tasty veggies to go with it.  But for years we've been working on finding the right sauce.  Buying it in a bottle seems to go too fast.  So, we looked up a recipe and made our own.   I didn't have the fresh ginger, garlic, or scallion, but I substituted Garlic Powder & Onion Powder.  I sorta forgot the ginger.  We doubled the recipe for our fam as follows:

6 tablespoons soy sauce
2 teaspoons fresh ginger, finely chopped
2 garlic clove, minced
2 scallion, white and green parts, finely chopped
1 teaspoon chili oil (or to taste. You can substitute almost any type of spicy or flavorful oil that you like)
4 teaspoons cornstarch
6 tablespoons water

1 - Dissolve cornstarch in water.
2 - Combine all ingredients.
3 - To use, make your stirfry until almost fully cooked. Stir in sauce in the last few minutes. Bring to a boil until thickened.

It was tasty. Go make it with broccolli, carrots, celery, green pepper, tasty chicken, & rice. Yummmmm.
