Wok It To The Plate (Motley Crue Delight)

Stir fry is the fastest and most healthy form of cooking!
(“Stir-frying” refers to quickly frying small pieces of food in a large pan over very high heat while constantly stirring the food)

What’s so healthy about a stir-fry? It’s the way in which the food is cooked that makes a stir-fry healthier than most other forms of cooking. Because the food is cooked so quickly, nutrients like vitamin C and folic acid are preserved. It is colourful and smells great when it's cooking too.

What cooking technique lets you cook your meal quickly, without a lot of fuss, using only one pan? You can even do it with one hand tied behind your back! It's stir-frying, a technique traditionally associated with Asian cooking.

It's fast, cheap and oh-so-good!

Cut your meat of choice into bite size strips or cubes. Marinate for a least ten minutes in what ever kind of flavour you like.(For this dish I used fast fry beef, terriyaki sauce, garlic, ginger) While your meat is marinating, cut up your vegetables of choice such as onions, carrots, broccoli, peppers, mushrooms,zucchini etc. into bite size pieces. Heat 2 tbsp. of oil (Olive or Canola) in a wok or deep frying pan until it's hot and a little smoking….

Add your vegetables all at once to the wok (you will hear it sizzle right away) and stir continuously until all is coated and glistening. Cook approximately 3 minutes. Remove the vegetables from the pan to a bowl and set aside….

Add your meat marinade to the hot pan stirring continuously until meat is cooked through. When the meat is cut thin or in bite size pieces, it only takes about 3-4 minutes to cook. I usually cook the noodles while the meat is cooking, it takes the same amount of time for both. Have the water boiling in a pot and ready to put the noodles in. Rice is good too if you prefer….

Add the vegetables all at once to pan with the meat, give it a stir and heat thoroughly, but not too long or the vege's will go soggy. Serve over hot noodles or rice.
Bon Appetit!
Enjoy

That looks devine, we were going to have bangers and mash for dinner, but I am thinking stir fry sounds and looks better... and definitely a lot healthier!
