  4. Stir in the soy sauce, Swerve brown sugar substitute, chili garlic sauce, ginger paste, and minced garlic. Stir to combine well.

Recipe Notes

If you would like to make your own brown sugar substitute you can simply add a drop of molasses to 2 tablespoons of Trim Healthy Mama Gentle Sweet, Truvia, or my homemade blend of xylitol, erythritol, and stevia.
