Soy sauce is it’s own beast in the overall Asian cuisine, not just to Southeast Asians. It’s used in many of its Southeast Asian dishes and is often used as a condiment and/or a marinating flavoring ingredient. Soy sauce is a salty savory umami flavor made from soybeans (which means it’s vegan/vegetarian approved) and is often used as a substitute of salt.
You’ll see soy sauce used in Pho, fried rice, stir fries, and a variety of soups and stews. Another staple in my kitchen that I never go without. I actually have a bulk gallon size in my cabinet and occasionally refill my soy sauce dispenser. Soy sauce has come a long way since I was a kid. There’s a variety of soy sauce with regards to low sodium and gluten-free versions.
