I love making stir fry, it’s easy, it’s healthy and you can make it with a wide variety of ingredients. Stir fry is one of the most versatile styles of cooking, allowing you to create a sort of potluck with your fridge and turn it into salty, steamed goodness. I usually cook my stir fry with fresh broccoli , carrots, steak or chicken, and snap peas. However, any variety of veggetables and meats would work also. While I tend to buy fresh veggies because I eat them so quickly, I also recommend buying frozen because they won’t go bad, and are already cooked.
Whether you use my ingredients, or your own, make sure to cook your meats and veggies seperately at first, and then combine them in a fry pan later. For example, if I am using steak and frozen broccoli I would cook my steak first in canola oil with some salt and pepper. I would also defrost the broccoli. Then, I would slice the steak and combine the ingredients together in my stir fry pan.
This is a quick frozen veggie stir fry recipe that includes my favoriet ingredients:
1 head broccoli, chopped and steamed
1/4 cup sliced white onion
1/4 cup sliced red pepper
2 carrots, sliced thin long-ways and then cut in half
3 cups snap peas
1 6 oz steak, fully cooked and sliced thin
2-3 garlic cloves, crushed and chopped
1 tbsp. canola oil
1 tsp. sesame seed oil (optional)
1 tsp. fresh grated ginger
2 1/2 tbsp. soy sauce
1 tsp. sriracha hot sauce (optional)
2 cups cooked udon noodles/ or 2 cups cooked white/ brown rice
First, put water on to boil for the noodles. Then, cook whatever meats and veggetables you are using as directed above.
Then, put oils in pan with garlic, onion, and ginger at medium heat; let simmer for about 3 minutes, or until the onion softens and you can begin to smell the garlic. Turn up the heat to medium high. Add veggies and cook for about 3 minutes to soften them. Lastly, add the noodles and steak. Then, immediately add hot sauce and soy sauce. Stir together for about 30 secs-1 minute.
