I like making stir-fry now and then. And, what I really like is that stir-fry dishes are quick and easy to prepare.
All you need is a piping hot skillet filled with a touch of oil and chopped vegetables and meat, skillet ready. The mix of vegetables in this recipe cooks crisp-tender very quickly and they’re colorful also.
Spicy food is right up my alley, and this sauce is indeed a little tangy. Lessen the ginger if you like it milder. Since this cooks super fast, just be sure you have all the ingredients prepped and ready to cook when the skillet or wok is ready. It’s packed with flavor and is “healthy-ish” too! Give it a try for a quick tasty dinner!
