  • Heat up a wok or skillet over high heat. When hot, add a drizzle of oil, then immediately add the aromatics before the heat gets too hot. Stir for a couple of seconds, then add the meat and cook, stirring occasionally, until browned and almost cooked though. Remove from the pan.
  • If the pan is dry, add a bit more oil, then cook the vegetables, stirring as needed, until they just start to soften.

  • Add the meat back in, give your sauce a stir, then add it to the pan. Let the sauce bubble and thicken, stirring as necessary. This is when you would add noodles in, if you’re using them. At this point your stir fry should be saucy, glossy and ready to eat!
