How to Stir Fry Vegetables

Today, we’ll teach you how to stir fry with
a delicious recipe for vegetables with peanut sauce. Stir frying simple means to quickly
fry small pieces of food in a small amount of fat, over a very high heat while stirring
constantly. This is something you can do in either your walk or a stainless steel skillet.
There are a few secrets to making the perfect stir fry. First, you want to make sure the
vegetables are cut in equal size pieces. This will ensure even cooking. Second, it’s critical
that the vegetables are dry to touch before adding them to the wok. Use paper towels to
dry any vegetables that might be wet. For the peanut sauce, in a small bowl, combine
peanut butter, brown sugar, soy sauce, lime juice and crushed red pepper. Stir to combine.
In another bowl, combine cherry and soy sauce. Set both of those aside. Heat a 14-inch flat
bottomed wok on high heat until a bit of water vaporizes within one to two seconds. Swirl
peanut oil into the pan. It should look like a necklace of oil. Then, lift with both hands,
tilting the wok until it’s coated and oil is running towards the bottom of the pan.
It’s important to use an oil with a high smoking point, such as peanut or vegetable oil. Next,
add the aromatics. In this case, ginger, and stir fry for ten seconds. Once you add the
ginger to the pan, you should hear a sizzling sound. That’s how you know the pan is properly
heated. Now, it’s time for the vegetables. Add the carrots and stir fry one minute. Then,
add the green beans and stir fry for another minute until the beans are bright green. Now,
add the liquid, which in this case is the cherry mixture. It’s important to swirl the
liquid in a thin stream along the sides of the wok. This preserves the high temperature
of the wok. Stir fry for two minutes or until the vegetables are crisp tender and most of
the liquid is absorbed. Finally, remove the wok from the heat and add the cabbage. Cook
for thirty seconds or until it slightly wilted. Serve with the peanut sauce and some chopped
eggs. Now, that you know the secrets to stir fry, week night cooking just got a whole lot

  1. Notice how much wobble that supposedly flat bottom wok has. Glass top stoves are terrible with anything cast iron. They heat up way too hot and cause warping. Side note: The wok used in this video is a Joyce Chen cast iron carbon steel wok. It's really great unless you warp it.
