I'm craving a stirfry something fierce, and I actually don't make a lot of stirfries so I'm not sure what to do for a sauce! What are your favourites?

I do a lot of stir frying so have quite a few favourites and it really varies depending on the veggies. In a winter stir fry with broccoli, carrot, cauliflower etc then I'll actually just add some fresh ginger at the start (with the onions and optional garlic) then add fresh lemon juice, pepper and a drizzle of sesame oil when I take it off the heat.
For a fresh spring or summer stir fry with more traditional things like long beans, fresh soy beans and capsicum and such then I'll go for some kind of a twist on a traditional teriyaki by using with sweet soy (Kecap Manis) or tamari soy sauce with a vinegar of some kind normally rice wine, but it can be nice with apple cider or even balsamic for another Western twist.
Sweet chilli sauce (homemade and sweeter than standard, try a Thai style or consider adding a Tbl of brown sugar, maple or agave if using off the shelf) and fresh lime juice is also popular in our house.
