How to Cook: Spontaneous Stir-Fry

Stir-fry is a staple of Asian cuisine that is so easy to prepare, it’s almost laughable. Tonight, I used whatever was available in my kitchen to make dinner for my family and it came out surprisingly delicious for something thrown together last-minute. So feel free to substitute any of the ingredients that I listed with your own meats and vegetables! Bean sprouts, snow peas, broccoli, baby corn, and peanuts are especially good in stir-fry. ;)

MY INGREDIENTS: thinly sliced beef, garlic, onions, potatoes, zucchini, ginger, cabbage, olive oil, soy sauce, and hoisin sauce (optional)

Dice up all your vegetables and set them aside in separate bowls. Taking only your garlic and half of your onions, sauté them with your beef in olive oil until it’s halfway browned. At this point, throw in about half a cup of soy sauce and stir well so that the flavor is cooked into the meat. Add a small amount of ginger and a generous portion of diced potatoes.

After adding some sliced cabbage to the pot, leave it covered for few minutes to steam. After the leaves have softened somewhat, uncover and add two tablespoons of hoisin sauce. Stir well, as this is what will sweeten the dish. If your mixture looks a bit dry, add no more than another 1/3 cup of soy sauce. At this point add your zucchini and the remaining half of your onions. Stir well and cover once again to steam for a few minutes.

Serve over steamed white rice and enjoy! ^.^ If you’ve missed any of my other cooking posts from way back when, check them out:
