rice wine substitution

  • p

If I can't find rice wine in my state store, what can I substitute in a spicy beef with peppers stir fry?

  1. You can use a dry sherry or cream sherry in place of rice wine is Chinese stir fry dishes. The taste will be very close and in some case even be better.

      Yes, dry sherry would be my first choice. If I don't have that on hand, then I've used sake or dry white wine in the past.

    2. I don't think that a liquor store is the place to buy rice wine -- it's more like cooking wine. You would buy it at an Asian grocer.
