Description

Did you know that when traditional stir fry was invented, early Chinese cooks had to cut grains, meats, and vegetables into small pieces because wood for fires were in short supply? If the pieces were too big, it would be more difficult to cook them perfectly. Some say that this quick cooking technique seals in the flavor of each and every bite. That’s why there’s nothing quicker, tastier, and easier to clean up than a great stir fry, and this recipe from LoSalt delivers. A tasty and quick "one-pot" meal to rustle up in less than half an hour, it’s perfect for families short on time. Enjoy!
