Chinese stir-fry

Satisfying Asian Stir-Fry

If there’s one thing I find enjoy and ease in coming up with, it’s the variety of stir-fry meals you can create using a combination of great ingredients. Generally simple to prepare, most of the work comes in chopping up fresh vegetables unless, of course, you cheat and buy some frozen or pre-chopped. Most of the flavor comes from the sauce added during cooking. Adding ginger always gives a nice, fresh kick. While meat is often added to traditional stir-fry dishes, it’s not necessary when you double up on the veggies. In this recipe, I used Elianni Mushroom veggie roll, now available to order on their site, or through Amazon.

Ingredients $24.00 (6 Servings)

  • water 1/2 cup
  • cornstarch (may reduce for a thinner sauce) 2 tbsps
  • brown sugar 4 tbsps
