I am a big fan of stir fry. I used to like it at restaurants, but there’s so much salt and I could never get exactly what I want. Dracoselene makes such good stir fry, and he’ll make pretty much anything I want as long as we can find the vegetables.

The stir fry in the photo there is a beef version. We started off with this ridiculously cheap thin beef. You know, the kind you think is too tough to eat and costs way less than other types. You slice that in thin strips and sear it quickly in a pan with a little bit of oil. The key is to leave it a little underdone so that when you add everything else it doesn’t turn into leather.

This also has asparagus which we pan-seared in butter, along with broccoli, baby corn and carrot that was steamed in one of those little steamer baskets in a pot. It’s really simple and a great way to cook the vegetables without boiling away the nutrition and fresh texture.

When everything is cooked you just toss it in a frying pan with your sauce and warm it all back up. We used hoisin, sesame oil and soy for this one, but sometimes we get really creative on making our own sauce. We don’t buy premade sauces, that way we can get just the flavor we want without all the sodium. This particular version is served over rice noodles which are inexpensive and cook up very fast. We usually do rice, but sometimes I like the noodles instead.

It can take some prep, but making a stir fry doesn’t have to be insane, and isn’t as hard as making fried rice. Although, we’ve figured out how to take the drama out of that meal as well. Even though it takes more time to prepare and cook fresh meals, it’s so much better for you and the flavors are beyond anything you can get in the freezer section or a can.
