Stir Fry Tips And Tricks

July 6, 2011

stir fry tipsStock up on day-old red and green peppers on sale or celery, onions, or other veggies. Chop them up and freeze them to use later. You can do the same thing with any vegetable you've bought that seem to be "on the turn" to avoid throwing them away. To use later, defrost or throw into a stir-fry for a quick meal.

When I want a stir fry but don't want to do all the prep work, I use a bag of Broccoli Slaw. It's already cut into thin match stick size. It has carrots and cabbage in there, too. Use just as you would for any stir fry recipe.

I stir fry quite often with fresh veggies. In order to get everything cooked properly, I need to add the different ingredients separately: first onions; then harder veggies that need to be softened, like carrots; then soft ones like broccoli or chard, that only need to cook briefly.

When adding frozen veggies such as broccoli, cauliflower, etc. to a stir fry, thaw the veggies first. I know the directions say not to thaw, but whenever I followed those directions, my veggies would be overcooked.
