“My trusty Kikkoman Oriental Cookbook from 1993 has several wonderful recipies that are easy to make with simple ingredients that I usually have on hand. I also often substitue fresh ginger root with powered and always have a jar of pre-chopped garlic on hand. The sauce is a staple for all my beef stirfrys. If I don't have much time, I buy a package of Oriental frozen stir fry vegetables, which has a wonderful assortment and costs about $3.”
