Stir Fry Essentials: Asian Veggie Stir Fry

Andy Anderson !


I love this dish, and being a carnivore that’s saying a lot. The original recipe came from a friend who owned an Asian restaurant in San Francisco. Over the years, I’ve tweaked the original ingredients to suit my own cooking style, and this is the result.

Whenever I serve this recipe, the bowls always come back empty, and that about sums it up.

So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.

How to Make Stir Fry Essentials: Asian Veggie Stir Fry


  2. Gather your Ingredients (mise en place).
  3. Cook the rice according to package direction; however, use 25% less water.
  4. Add the butter to a large skillet, over medium heat.
  5. Chef’s Note: This skillet need to be big enough to hold all the ingredients.
  6. When the butter melts, and the foaming subsides, add the onions.
  7. Cook until they soften and begin to brown, about 8 – 10 minutes.
  8. Add the carrots, and cook for an additional 2 minutes
  9. Add the edamame, peas, and rice, and cook for 1 minute.
  10. Add the bean sprouts, and green cabbage, and cook for an additional 2 – 3 minutes.
  11. Chef's Note: Reduce heat to medium-low, add about an ounce of water to the pan, then cover, and allow to steam for 2 – 3 minutes.
  13. Place in bowls, and top with scrambled eggs, if using (the eggs really gives this dish added flavor), and sprinkle with some toasted sesame seeds. Serve with tamari sauce and sesame oil on the side, and maybe a bit of peanut sauce. Enjoy.
  14. Chef’s Note: if you are looking for an excellent peanut sauce, check out this one:
