Directions

For sauce:
  • In a small saucepan, heat sugar over medium-high heat until sugar begins to melt, shaking saucepan occasionally to heat sugar evenly. Reduce heat to low and cook until sugar is melted and light brown (about 3 minutes more). Stir as necessary after sugar begins to melt. Carefully add water, stirring until sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat. Stir together chicken broth, fish sauce, and cornstarch; stir into sugar mixture. Set aside.

Tips

Take a few precautions when handling hot peppers to avoid burning your eyes or skin. Protect your hands by covering them with plastic bags or plastic or rubber gloves. Cook chile peppers just for the time indicated in recipes and avoid breathing directly over the wok as you stir-fry because of the powerful fumes.
