Easy and Delicious Stir Fry

I bought a bunch of vegetables at the local farmers market and was looking for a way to use them. My husband suggested stir fry, but I have not been happy with any way we was not happy with his old ways of preparing it, so... I started searching online for various recipes and that were either stir fry or stir fry sauce. I got several ideas from different recipes, but the recipe from Winnipeg *Mel* on www.Food.com for Easy Stir Fry Sauce was pretty closely followed. My family really enjoyed this dish, even the ones that do not enjoy this type of dish or the vegetables that were included.

How to Make Easy and Delicious Stir Fry

Step-by-Step

  1. Prepare Rice or Noodles if desired
  2. mix sauce ingredients together in medium bowl or jar. Stir with wire whisk or shake to stir.
  3. place all ingredients for meat portion into zip loc bag. Making sure that onion is chopped into the size you desire to eat. Shake bag to coat everything with the corn starch.
  4. slice vegetables to desired thickness. I prefer to hand slice them and make them pretty thin. You can use any combination of vegetables, as long as you have three to four cups sliced.
  5. heat 2 tablespoons of canola oil in large skillet or wok. Stir meat in and continue to cook for approximately four minutes until meat is almost done.
  6. Remove meat from skillet. Add 2 more tablespoons of canola oil and bring up to heat.
  7. add vegetables to skillet, stir fry for 3 to four minutes until vegetables are just under your desired tenderness.
  8. add meat back to skillet, stir to make sure meat and vegetables are mixed together.
  9. give your sauce another good stir or shake because corn starch settles quite rapidly. Pour just enough sauce into skillet to almost cover your mixture.
  10. Cook your dish on high heat for one to two minutes until sauce starts to thicken.
  11. At this point, I still wanted my vegetables to be a little more tender, so I covered my skillet, turned to low and simmered for 15-20 minutes.
