As with all stir-fried dishes, you’ll want to prepare all your ingredients beforehand. Chop all your vegetables, measure and make your stir-fry sauce ahead, and have any other seasoning and garnishes within reach because you’ll be working fast!
Be mindful of the heat and your ingredients’ cooking time. If you’re adding protein, like shrimp, beef, or other meats, you’ll want to pre-cook them first and set them aside before incorporating them in your stir-fry. This prevents it from overcooking or burning in your hot wok.
For vegetables, toss in firm ingredients like carrots and red peppers before moving to the lighter and leafy veggies like bok choy or cabbage. You want your vegetables to be crunchy instead of soggy!
Finally, try your best to use high-quality ingredients. It may be a simple recipe but it will be more satisfying to choose the right ingredients to nail your homemade noodle dish. Plus, you’ll be needing sesame oil and soy sauce for a lot of other recipes, so having both in your pantries will do you great! Visit our online Asian grocery store to get these high-quality products!
