Chinese garlic sauce—similar to brown sauce —is quite popular on Chinese restaurant and takeout menus. Although garlic sauce is found in traditional Chinese dishes, the version we are familiar with has been Americanized to accommodate Western palates and perhaps make it easier for restaurant chefs to find the ingredients in the United States. In Chinese cooking, sometimes stir-fried dishes can generate some liquid during cooking and a lot of Chinese chefs will stir in a starch and water mixture called a slurry. The slurry is usually 1 to 2 teaspoons of cornstarch mixed with a couple of tablespoons of cold water. This will thicken the sauce in the stir-fried dishes. In a small bowl, stir together the rice vinegar, sugar, soy sauces, rice wine or sherry, chile sauce, and sesame oil.
