Tso Sauce: In a small pot sauté 1 Tbsp fresh minced ginger, 1 Tbsp fresh minced garlic with 2 Tbsp oil until soft. Turn heat down and add ¼ cup Sriracha sauce, 2 1/2 Tbsp sesame oil,  90 ml soy sauce (or tamari), 50 ml vinegar, 50 ml tomato paste, 2 Tbsp rice flour, 1 Tbsp brown sugar and  115 ml hot water.
