Who doesn’t love a great stir-fry? They are quick, flavorful and deliver when time is short. Stir-fry is a great gateway to create your own flavors with awesome ingredients. I started making stir-fry by following recipes and then modifying as I went to fit our tastes. At the end of the day a great stir-fry is vegetables, sauce and a starch. The variations are endless.
