The Amazing Stir Fry
By John Havel
Stir frying is one of the quickest and healthiest way to prepare
a meal and is easily adapted to most cooking styles. There are many
advantages to eating stir-fried foods.
First, oil is kept to a minimum. Secondly, the food is cooked on
high heat thus preserving its natural flavor and texture. Stir fries
are also great fun to make. The sizzling and the energetic jostling
of food within the large surface area of your wok makes for an
evening of frolic in the kitchen! And then of course, it's just
plain easy cooking which is what this is all about.
The process is simple. Keep your ingredients chopped and ready and
handy. Prepare sauces in advance. Start with sauteeing garlic and/or
ginger in hot oil. Add your choice of meat, cook until almost done,
and remove to the side. Add your veggies that take the longest to
cook and work your way down to those that don't. Add some sherry and
then a sauce that thickens at the last minute and you're ready to
One of the things I like best about stir frying is that you can
pair pretty much any meat with almost any vegetable. Think of the
possibilities! Beef, pork, chicken, lamb, or seafood with broccoli,
green beans, onions, snow peas, bean sprouts ... the choices are
limited only by your imagination. The main rule to remember is that
in order for the food to cook evenly, quickly and aesthetically,
the pieces must all be as close in shape and size as possible.
