What makes this Beef Stir Fry Quick and Vibrant?
This Beef Stir Fry is easy to make, is full of flavour and features so many beautiful colours and contrasts.
I have done my research and had my own experiences with stir frying. This is what I have learned. A stir fry is quick and easy to make IF you are organised and have everything chopped and ready to go. Preparing the ingredients takes a bit of time but the moment you start cooking you won’t believe how quickly it’s ready to serve.
Cooking a stir fry is a great way to boost your confidence in the kitchen, especially when cooking with very high heat. Be careful to make sure the wok and oil are hot and ready for frying. The wok must be piping hot so that you hear a loud sizzle in the pan when you add your meat. That way you will give the meat the colour and flavour that you want. Use a light cooking oil, such as vegetable oil or rice bran oil, when stir frying as olive oil can burn, and butter will definitely burn at such high temperatures.
So there you go, that’s my take on stir frying. Now you just need to get cooking and I guarantee your confidence in the kitchen will grow. Good luck.
