Directions

Stir-Fry 1. Drain the excess marinade from the protein. Place your sauce, vegetables and protein near the stove. 2. Heat 1/4' peanut or vegetable oil in a wok or skillet over medium heat. Add the protein; lowly stir until almost opaque, 30 seconds to 1 minute. Transfer to a plat; discard the oil and wipe out the pan. 3. Heat the pan over high heat, 1 to 2 minutes. Add 2 TBS oil, then 2 cloves minced garlic (or 4 cloves if using spicy sauce), 1 to 2 TBS minced ginger, 2 minced scallions and a pinch each of salt and sugar; stir-fry about 30 seconds. Add the vegetables, starting with the ones that take the longest to cook; stir-fry until crisp-tender. 4. Add the protein and sauce and stir until the sauce is thick and the vegetables and protein are cooked through, about 3 minutes. Thin with chicken broth, if needed. Garnish with sliced scallions, peanuts, sesame seeds, sliced jalapenos and/or cilantro.
