What is a Stir-Fry ?
Stir-Fries are exactly what the name says and is a Chinese cooking method which has by now taken over the world !
You quickly stir-fry meats and vegetables over high heat in a little oil until done. The more you stir, the quicker the meal is ready.
And really, most recipes only require a couple of minutes of stir-frying and it is cooked in record time. I would say the prepping takes a little longer, especially if you chop your own vegetables.
However, nowadays, so many fresh vegetables are available, already chopped. Some even mixed for a certain type of stir-fry – think Mexican, Asian, French and so many more.
Which vegetables are suitable for a stir-fry ?
Most vegetables are ! As long as the vegetables used play well together (flavor wise) and are chopped in smallish pieces, you can use just about any vegetable.
Some of the more popular vegetables include:
- Baby Corn
- Mushrooms (especially Shiitake)
- Bell Peppers (all of them)
- Sugar Snap Peas

- and so many more
The bonus with a stir-fry is that most meats, seafood and poultry is ideal in this type of meal. Or you can totally make it vegetarian !
