I just found this sauce yesterday at my local Giant. It was in the "international foods" aisle.

I bought it, but haven't tried it yet.

Dear runner girl,

I read that Choy Sun is made by Lee Kum Kee, and safe. The site has not been updated, though. You may want to call and see if the sauce is still safe. Go to http://usa.lkk.com/Common/corporate/faq.aspx to find where I got the info. Also, if it is safe, you can buy it on amazon .com at http://www.amazon .com/Lee-Kum-Kee-Premium-...r/dp/B00023T3J4

so you can get some!

Sincerely,

I have been using CHOY SUN OYSTER FLAVORED SAUCE by LEE KUM KEE for a long time. Last time was two days ago in a snow pea and shrimp stir fry. Never a problem.

Dear rajawali,

Thank you for posting this! It is always good to have another confirmation! I need to get some of this stuff! There are so many things it would go great with! I need to look around for it. If I cannot find it locally, I know I can order it on Amazon!

Sincerely,

Just another note about this sauce...

I mentioned that I found it at Giant. I also wanted to mention that I found it at my local asian food market (I'm fortunate enough to have 4 of them all within a 10 min drive of my house) and I found a MUCH BIGGER bottle of it, for the same price as Giant.

So, for those of you who are looking for this, try an Asian food market first and try Giant next. You COULD try Whole Foods as an absolute last resort, but it's quite a bit more (at least near me) than even Giant's price.

As a bit of a sidebar, I made egg rolls with this sauce (using rice paper spring roll wraps, of course) with this, and my roommate/best friend (who is not gluten-free) said that they were the best egg rolls she ever had. She ate FOUR (!)of them and is already begging me to make more this weekend...!!

Could you give up your recipe for egg rolls? I have been looking for a way to make them.

Yellow Rose

Sure... It's pretty simple really (well, I think it is...)

Please note that I don't do too much "measuring" with this recipe. I just "eyeball" it and taste it :P ... This recipe will make about 6 small-to-medium egg rolls. Your measurements may be more or less depending on preferences and amount you intend to make.

You'll need:

1/2 bag of coleslaw mix/shredded cabbage (I use the kind without carrots)

1 small chicken breast, cut into very small pieces (or whatever meat you want to use, or meatless)

oyster sauce (Lee Kum Kee Choy Sun Brand)

vegetable oil

sesame oil

chili oil (optional)

ground ginger

minced garlic

dash of soy sauce (whichever gluten-free soy sauce you prefer)

rice paper spring roll wraps (I used the smaller, "bread plate" sized, round wrappers.)

Filling

Start by heating a large skillet on med-high/high heat. Add about 2 Tbsp of vegetable oil and 2 Tbsp of sesame oil. Add about 1-2 tsp (or more) of minced garlic and the chicken. Cook until the chicken is no longer pink and add cabbage. Cook until cabbage wilts and softens a bit (or until to whatever degree of "cooked" you prefer). Add a dash (or 2) of ground ginger. Add 2 Tbsp (or so) of oyster sauce. Just enough to coat the filling, not enough to make it "soupy" or anything.

Add a few drops of chili oil (optional... gives it just a little kick) and a dash of soy sauce.

Continue cooking for about 30 secs - 1 min. Just enough for everything to get all incorporated and yummy. You can taste and decide if you would like to add any additional spices/sauce.

When it's done, dump it all out onto a plate or dish lined with paper towels and let it cool COMPLETELY (I did for about 1 hour to be safe).

Wraps

These can be a little tricky to work with (at least for me) but I developed a bit of a trick to make them work better for me.

*Line a cookie sheet with foil and spray it with a bit of cooking spray (or use a little bit of vegetable oil and spread it around the foil. This makes it much easier to work with the wraps, as they get sticky when you go to wet them to work with them.*

Get a dish of boiling water (some people use other methods to wet the wraps, but this works for me). When you get the wraps they are sort of hard, and you have to wet them with the boiling water to be able to fold them.

*Another note, because the wraps are so thin and I like a more substantial wrapper with my rolls, I used 2 wrappers for one roll. Just lay them together before you wet them. When you dip them in the water, they will stick together.*

Dip your wrappers until they begin to soften and then carefully pull them out of the water. If you pull them out too quickly, they will fold in on themselves and are a nightmare to get straightened out.

Lay them out on your cookie sheet and fill with about 2 Tbsp of filling. Fold the top and bottom ends up, and then start from one side and roll, making sure the top and bottom stays tucked in. Place on your cookie sheet, and continue until all of your rolls are done.

What I did next was to let them "set up" in the fridge for about an 30 mins or so, just to make sure everything stayed in place when I fried them.

Then, fry in vegetable oil (with a bit of sesame oil added if you like) on very high heat for a few minutes on each side. If you use a deep fryer or sauce pan, it will work better, I think. Another note, try to fry them one at a time, because I learned (the hard way) that if you put more than one in at once, they will float towards each other and stick together. They can be separated when they are done, but, again, it's a pain. Also, I found that they didn't "brown" the way I am used to my pre-gluten-free egg rolls browning. I guess because it's a differen't wrapper. They still get crunchy, but not as "golden" as I remember other egg rolls to be.

Drain WELL on paper towels and serve with gluten-free sauce of choice (I like duck sauce).

That's it!! You know, now that I read over this, it sounds A LOT more complicated than I intended, but I promise it's not as "long and involved" as it sounds. ;)

Enjoy! :D

Dear JustMeInMD,

Thank you for sharing your recipe! I bought a huge cabbage I need to shred myself, when I could have bought the pre-shredded stuff! I know you have to be careful with those, because some may have cc issues unless they solely deal with produce. I am anxious to make Spring Rolls! You are very right about the Asian markets. They are much less expensive and have high quality items. For my cookies, I use sweet rice flour, and for other things, I use plain rice flour you can get for only $1 or so per box or bag, instead of much more. We do not have a Whole Foods or Giant here, but do have a Super Wal-Mart, which has a lot of stuff we can have.

Sincerely,

NoGluGirl

I'm so glad I read this thread! I just printed off a recipe yesterday for Thai "cashew nut shrimp" on another site...oh my gosh, I could eat Thai food everyday....and I was missing my veggie spring rolls so much. I'm going to gather all the ingredients I need....just gotta find a store that sells them first.

Anyway, my mouth is watering for my favorite Thai restaurant now. :rolleyes:

Thanks so much for the info. and happy cooking! Julie

Dear Julie,

Have you had Thai Kitchen's Peanut Noodles? They are delicious! They are very filling, tasty, and really hit the spot! I am almost always hungry. I really enjoyed these, because they taste great, and are keep me content for a while.

I found some gluten-free oyster sauce at my local Whole Foods - I think it is the Choy Sun.

Dear Julie,

You are so welcome! They are delicious! Thai Kitchen and A Taste of Thai both make them. I think they are actually the same company, but go by different titles at times. Those will fill you up!

Dear Elena,

Choy Sun is the brand made by Lee Kum Kee. You probably could find it at a mainstream grocery. Some Asian markets carry it, too. That would be less expensive. Whole Foods charges a lot more. We do not have one here, but I know some other people said their items are higher even if they are the same brand as in the regular store.

I actually looked at my regular grocery store first and did not find any gluten free oyster sauce. Since I use very little of it, one bottle lasts me a long time. :)

Dear Elena,

That is good it lasts a while! It is so odd how one store might carry something, and then another does not. I do not know why that is. We have some mainstream stores that do not carry things many of the same stores in other cities do. At our Super Wal-Mart, they do not always carry the same stuff. That drives me crazy! They might not have something for weeks or months, and then it will pop up again.

Sincerely,

NoGluGirl

    • Depression / anxiety issues
      Thanks for the advice Irene. I will look into that book. I know I'm a long away from healed but I got my hopes up when I felt better in that first week, it's just constantly a battle. I am hoping and praying that I get better soon 
    • Celiac - How many symptoms can there be?
      Do you take digestive enzymes and probiotics? That may help. Have you met with a dietician for help figuring out how you're getting glutened?
    • Depression / anxiety issues
      You should read the book' Jennifer's Way" you might find her story similar.  You will find better health- but be patient- it's an up and down road and takes a long time! For me it's been 7-8 months and I'm not well but slowly improving I hope
    • Celiac - How many symptoms can there be?
      Hi Everyone I am new here and wanted to see if anyone else is experiencing the same thing I am.  I was diagnosed positive for celiac in 2/2016 via biopsy from an endoscopy.  I was negative for blood work because I self-eliminated gluten 9 months prior; so I guess I had not antibodies register in my lab work.  Prior to 2/2016 I was having symptoms for almost an entire year.  Despite cutting out grains in general for 9 months, I would have a gluten attack at least once a month.  I have had a history of sinus, bronchial infection.  I remember as young as 17 getting sick but I always bounced back and was active in sports and working out.  But in the past year I developed the following symptoms - Sudden desire to pass out, nausea, headaches, heart palpitation, crashing exhaustion as if I was recuperating from the flu, wheezing in my chest. I was bounced around to an allergist at this and was told I was asthmatic and I had food sensitivities to dairy, nuts, corn or corn derivatives (including corn syrup) and grains.  so I cut everything out!  Despite cutting everything out I was still have episodes at least monthly, possibly cross contamination.  In April 2015 I traveled to the Carribean for 2 weeks,  I became very ill with a urinary tract infection, stomach bug and severe back pain with constant fever.  I was treated with antibiotics (Bactrim) for 10 days which did clear up the situation. I came home and dismissed everything to a coincidence.  Six weeks later the GI distress woke me up in the middle of night.  The pain was so excruciating that when I sat on the toilet thinking I had to go, I almost past out from the pain.  I lay myself down on the floor until it subsided.  The next day I contacted my primary and was immediately seen.  She referred me to a GI specialist but the appointment was not until August.  Then 2 weeks before my GI appointment they called and rescheduled for late September.  I saw him and by then I was feeling better; no epsides for almost 2 months.  So we did nothing.... boy did I talk to soon.  Immediately after the appointment I had an attack.  These were the symptoms: Nausea, crashing fatigue (as if I was hit with the flu), diarrhea, dizziness,, loss of appetite,  lower back pain, specifically in the middle; intestinal discomfort and body aches which lasted 10 days!! and abruptly disappeared, thank God.
      . I had to wait to see the GI until 1/2016.  Once I saw him he did labs which were all normal.  He checked my liver, kidney, pancreas, blood count which was all normal.  He also scheduled the endo/colonoscopy for end of 1/2016.  Speeding forward in time....since the Endo/Colonscopy procedures, I had attacks January through March which last 7-10 days each time.  I finally had a break for 2 months and today as I type this I am on day 6 of another episode.  What I wanted to see if anyone has experience the following.  For me each episode is getting worse with the following symptoms: Nausea (horrible), back pain on the left side both in the rib cage (the front and back) at times this pain also gravitates toward my left hip.  I also get diarrhea, bloating, intestinal distress, crashing fatigue and loss of appetite.  What really hits me hard is the rib cage pain that is in the front and back on my left side.  I will be seeing the GI doctor in August; but I am hoping to see him sooner Any input in reference to symptoms is appreciated.    
    • Depression / anxiety issues
      Hi all  10 weeks ago i was diganoised with celiac with blood work and a endoscopy. I have had the worst 2 years of my life that started with blood being in my stool everyday. I have always suffered with anxiety for as long as I can remember but I always just pushed trough it. I then I started having panic attacks, insomnia and major depression that I could not handle, I could not function, I lost my job because I could not leave my bed, I shaked as I lay in bed everyday uncontrollably. I met with a doctor who put me on lexapro (antidepressant) I finally gave in after 6 months and started taking them, they made me worst than I already was so I had to stop after 14 weeks. Fast forward to 15 months later and the symptoms still persists including the bloody stools, I was in and out of hospital every week and told I had all sorts of conditions, then the blood work and endoscopy Finaly discovered the celiac. I have been on the diet now for 10 weeks, the first week my anxiety went away, the horrible knot in my stomach that I have had everyday, the hot flushes, the tingling I had run trough my legs. This all left but only for a couple of days then it came back, the depression also lifted but has now came back, I have been more than strict with the diet, I check everything twice before I eat it, me and the misses have thrown away everything from our kitchen and replaced it with new things. I had my Vitiam levels checked and I'm deficient in b12, Vit D, all B vitiams. It's like one step Foward 2 steps back in tearms of healing, I know these anxiety / depression feelings are not me but I've had them for so long that I can't seem to see light at the end of the tunnel. The couple of days that they left me when incredible I felt human and alive. Just wondering if any of this has happened to anyone else with celiac or gluten intorlance. Any advice or hope In tearms of healing or am I to feel like this for the rest of my life (I'm 28) by the way. Thanks a lot

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
