    I think bottled sauces don't even come close to the taste you get if you
    make your own by adding the ingredients when cooking. The ingredients
    are inexpensive and it is really easy to assemble a good sauce.

    Tried a few and they pretty much all taste like jam. Way too much sugar.
    Most sauces are made with the same ingredients like soy sauce, oyster sauce
    etc so just use those. It will taste a whole lot better.

    I never use bottled stir-fry sauces because most such sauces are
    extremely easy and quick to prepare. Most people who eat Chinese
    food will have soy sauce (the light variety is often good.).
    Garlic and fresh (or frozen) ginger root are not hard to come by
    and most people have cornstarch. Rice vinegar and mirin are
    useful but a little less distilled vinegar can be used and
    sherry will substitute for mirin.

    Chicken stock, black bean sauce and sesame oil are sometimes
    called for. One recipe that I have includes ketchup :-)

    The single-most important sauce for stir-frying is oyster sauce. A
    good one like Lee Kum Kee premium or Amoy. And if you can't get
    those, then LKK Panda brand is fairly decent.

    Rice wine, chicken stock, light soy sauce, black bean sauce, shrimp
    paste, bean paste, and hot chili pastes are secondary, and with all
    the above you can make any sort of stir-fry. Don't ever buy
    anything labeled "stir-fry sauce" - They all suck.

    You got that right, my friend! We really like the Lee Kum Kee brand of
    things. Their Premium Dark Mushroom soy sauce is AWESOME! We use about
    three brands of their soy, their Hoisin and their Oyster. Great stuff.

    I read an interesting comment about Indian sauces the other day--that
    combining a couple of sauces makes the flavor less uniform. Maybe one
    could try that with other types of sauces and achieve a similar result?

    Yep, use their teriyaki sauce all the time. Highly recommended.
