Last week I made one of the best stir-fry a college student could make. All by hand and with no measuring cups or recipes. So, how did I know what to put in this stir-fry and how much soy sauce, pepper or oil to add? Well, to be honest it was just luck. I’ve learned that you can’t really go wrong with stir-fry. As long as you include a vegetable, a sauce, some salt and pepper and you’re golden. And if you mess up your stir-fry it’s not the end of the world, you can always get a new pan and some new ingredients and start over. Luckily with my expertise I didn’t have to start over.
What I included in my stir-fry was buckets (and I mean buckets) of noodles, a little bit of oil (to get it sizzling), soy sauce, pepper, salt, spices and loads of vegetables. So, what kind of vegetables make a great stir-fry? From my experience you can’t go wrong with any vegetable. For this stir-fry I included onions, bell peppers, broccoli and celery. If I could re-do this stir-fry recipe, however, I would not have put the celery in. I’m not a huge fan of the vegetable to begin with, so including it in the stir-fry was a simple mistake. Otherwise, the dish tasted delicious. And the amount I made could probably feed a small country. Oops! The best thing about this meal is that it only takes 15 minutes to make, including chopping vegetables and prep-time!
