  1. google stir fry sauce..I highly recommend adding toasted sesame oil (a little bit pricey but you don’t need a lot) and dry sherry (if you can find chinese rice wine even better but I can’t so the sherry works great)…these two things added make stir fry sauces that taste very similar to Asian restaurant stir fries

  2. I don’t. I make a “Stir-Steam”. I pour a can of broth in a pan over medium heat. Add onions and a clove or two of garlic and stir a minute then add all the other veges I choose (corn, green beans, and one or two colors of peppers might be a simple choice or check out Google or Pinterest). After stirring frequently for 10-15 minutes (until it reaches desired tenderness), I add cooked meat if I choose. Turn off heat and pour over rice or noodles.

    Just cover the bottom of your skillet with oil, not too much. Add chopped onions, celery, peppers ( any kind). Stir and fry. Just add what your family likes. Keep tossing and frying until done.

  4. I use sesame oil to cook with. Hoisin sauce. Onion, garlic, bell pepper, celery, carrots, bean sprouts, broccoli, baby bok choy, mushrooms, steak or chicken(I prefer steak).

  5. My mom always just threw some stir fry veggies in a skillet with some butter, salt and pepper then some soy sauce to ur liking and that was always good 🤷🏼‍♀️😊, easy anyways lol

  6. Died chicken, sweet and sour sauce, red and yellow peppers, i add broccoli and the little corns.

    I simply saute chicken in olive oil. No reason to coat it with anything. Either cut up size or breasts and season it with only pepper and garlic powder. No extra salt because that is in the sauce. Once the chicken is cooked all the way through I add carrots broccoli and sometimes pineapple at the very end. I just use the Frozen vegetable mixes from the store and dump the whole bag in. Then I add some kind of stir fry sauce you can just buy it bottled or make your own but buying sweet and sour sauce from the store is the easiest and my family likes it the best. I serve over white rice

  8. The sauce is the most important part! The veggies are whatever you have on hand. To make the sauce use some chicken stock, honey, soy sauce, cornstarch, and if you have garlic, ginger, some pepper !

    I either use whatever veggies I have on hand or get a bag of frozen stir fry veggies (if I’m feeling lazy). I either use chicken, beef or pork for the protein but sometimes I just do a vegetarian one. For my sauce I use soy sauce, mirin, a bit of hoisin sauce, fresh minced garlic, fresh minced ginger and some red pepper flakes. And I either serve over rice or I put udon noodles in it.

  10. I use either Ramen noodles, white rice, or the box stir fry rice from Rice a Roni. Chicken or steak. Then whatever vegetables you want. Tons of way to do the sauce.

  11. I do keto so you can use regular ingredients. The meat is from Miejer and it just said for stir fry on the package, but you can use chicken. I seasoned flour and covered meat and put it in a wok with sesame oil covering the bottom. I also put my onions in and let the meat brown and the onions get translucent. In the meantime I defrosted a frozen bag of broccoli and cut up the big pieces. I next put in the peppers, mushrooms, soy sauce and honey to taste. Lastly, the broccoli and pepper flakes. Cooked it long enough for the broccoli to get hot. You don’t want to cook it so long your vegetables are limp. This is so easy. You could also use shrimp!

    Grab a bag of microwave veg. ($1ish at Walmart) microwave about 5min. While this is cooking, Olive or avocado oil in pan get hot. Add small (1/2inch) pieces of the protein of your choosing. cook to almost done. Add the now mostly cooked veg to pan. Add fav sweet n sour sauce to your preferred level of sauciness. Simmer all this on low about 5mim more with lid on. Serve with rice. You’re welcome.😊

    Chicken, stirred in olive oil over heat. Add bag of stir fry style veggies. Stir to heat. Add bottle of stir fry sauce. Stir, heat, serve…over rice

  14. Stephanie Horwood

    Chicken or beef, pretty much any veggies you want, I do carrots, broccoli, baby corn, then add a sauce like honey garlic, teriyaki, whatever you like

  15. Soy sauce, garlic, ground ginger, hoisin sauce and sesame seed oil are the base ingredients I use.

    We just had stir fry last night! I used smoked sausage, but you can use any kind of meat you want. I sliced and cooked the sausage first. Took the sausage out. Then I used olive oil to cook onions and peppers. Then I added sliced up cabbage. I added teriyaki sauce and some soy sauce, and let the cabbage cook down a bit. I put the sausage back in, added salt and pepper, and added a can of sliced carrots. I then boiled 3 packages of ramen noodles (no flavor packets) for 3 minutes. Drained them, and dumped them in. Tossed and mixed well, and that’s it! If you use raw carrots, just know those take a long time to soften up. That’s why I started using canned. I normally add broccoli as well, but I didn’t have any on hand yesterday.

    Any meat cut in strips and peppers, onions, soya sauce and whatever else you might have. Garlic, broccoli, cauliflower, mushrooms, baby corn, snap peas, etc. I usually put a tiny bit of Water and sprinkle some beef broth powder.

  18. Katie Brumpton

    As for veggies I use sliced onions, bean sprouts, finely chopped broccoli tops, sometimes thinly sliced carrots

  19. Richard Delores Gilpin

    I use a bag of frozen stir fry vegetables and then stir fry I’m in put them over rice soy sauce salad

  20. I use hoisin sauce and soy sauce(or coconut amino acids)veggies(usually carrots, snap peas, broccoli, etc), water chestnuts. Then whatever meat I want.

    I cube up the chicken & season it then coat it in corn starch, fry it in a little oil. Once chicken is done, put it on a plate. Then in same pan add a little more oil, fry up some veggies until they are tender, add chicken back & add a sauce like teriyaki. Serve it over rice. It’s a pretty cheap meal & yummy.
