How to make a stir-fry
A stir fry is one of those non-recipe recipes. If you understand the basic process, you don’t need a recipe or to measure anything!
- Heat a couple tablespoons of oil in a work or large frying pan. I like to use sesame oil for the flavour it provides.
- Fry your protein: thinly sliced chicken, pork, or beef strips, shrimp, or tofu cubes. Season lightly with salt.
- Once the protein is cooked, remove it to a bowl.
- Add a bit more oil to the pan and fry your thinly sliced veggies. I also like to add minced garlic. Season lightly with salt.
- Return the protein to the pan to reheat.
- Remove pan from heat.
- Serve the stir fried veggies and protein over rice or noodles. Top with sauce and (my favourite) chopped peanuts and green onions.
Why This Easy Stir Fry Sauce is a Smart Choice
I’m not going to lie; this stir fry sauce is heavy on the sugar. Most stir fry sauces are. But I’m still okay with it for a couple of reasons.
- You don’t need to use a lot of it to get good flavour.
- It can be the means to eating a butt load of veggies! A little bit of sugar for a lot of veggies is a good balance in my books.
It may be the easiest stir-fry in the sauce in the world but there’s no compromise on flavour!
- 1/4 cup sweet chili sauce
- 1/4 cup oyster sauce
- Mix the two ingredients together and serve over your favourite stir-fried veggies, protein, and rice or noodles!
- Top with peanuts and sliced green onion for extra flavour.
