We love our stir-fries and it is also one of the dishes we make several times a month. Anything goes really with a stir-fry, beef, pork, seafood, chicken and we are especially fond of this Teriyaki Chicken Stir-Fry
Stir-fries are extremely convenient as they are quick and easy to make and I normally have all the ingredients on hand. I do prefer fresh vegetables, but always have a couple of bags of frozen vegetables in the freezer. No need to defrost the vegetables when stir-frying, cook as is from the bag.
Just about any stir-fry combination of vegetables can be used in this recipe as Teriyaki is just as versatile. One of our favorite combinations is definitely the Oriental-Style - crunchy baby corn, snow peas (sugar snap peas) and baby carrots are the main features of this particular combo.
Another bonus when making stir-fry is that you can adjust the vegetable ingredients easily, by type as well as how many servings you need - and all this at the last minute. When it is only my hubby and myself, I half the recipe, whereas when the kids are all home, I simply double the recipe.
Another stir-fry recipe you might enjoy is my Sweet and Sour Chicken Stir-Fry - sticky delicious and made using fresh vegetables.
