Tips for the Perfect Stir-Fry:
- Prep Your Ingredients: Have all your vegetables chopped and sauces ready before you start cooking. Stir-frying happens quickly, and you’ll want everything at your fingertips.
- High Heat: Use a hot pan or wok and work swiftly. The high heat helps cook the veggies quickly while maintaining their crunch.
- Don’t Overcrowd: Avoid overcrowding the pan; it can make your stir-fry steam rather than stir-fry. If needed, cook in batches.
- Be Creative: Feel free to customize your stir-fry with your favorite vegetables or protein sources like tofu, shrimp, or chicken.
- Sauces: Experiment with different sauces for flavor variations. Teriyaki, hoisin, or sriracha can add some extra zing.
- Garnish: Fresh herbs, like cilantro or Thai basil, can add a burst of freshness to your dish.
