What are the 3 rules of stir-frying?

  1. Prep Ahead: All ingredients should be prepared ahead of time. This includes slicing meats and vegetables uniformly to ensure even cooking.
  2. High Heat: Stir-frying should be done quickly over high heat. This requires a well-heated pan, typically a wok, to achieve the characteristic sear and crisp-tender texture.
  3. Stir Constantly: As the term “stir-fry” implies, you should constantly stir the ingredients. This technique helps to cook the food quickly and evenly, preventing it from burning.

What is the secret to a good stir-fry?

The secret to a good stir-fry lies in several key factors:

  • Use a well-seasoned wok or a high-quality, heavy-bottomed frying pan to ensure consistent high heat.
  • Properly balancing flavors with a combination of sauces, spices, and seasonings.
  • Marinating proteins for extra flavor and tenderness.
  • Stir-frying ingredients in the right order, typically starting with the proteins and harder vegetables and ending with quick-cooking items and aromatics like garlic and green onions.
  • Not overcrowding the pan, which can lead to steaming rather than stir-frying.

What are the four main components of a stir-fry?

The four main components of a stir-fry are:

  1. Proteins: Such as beef, chicken, pork, shrimp, tofu, or eggs.
  2. Vegetables: Various vegetables can be used, such as bell peppers, broccoli, onions, carrots, and snow peas.
  3. Aromatics: Ingredients like garlic, ginger, and green onions, which are essential for flavor.
  4. Sauce: This typically includes a mixture of soy sauce, oyster sauce, hoisin sauce, rice wine, and sometimes stock or water. Cornstarch can also be added to thicken the sauce.

What is chicken stir fry sauce made of?

Chicken stir fry sauce can vary in ingredients, but a basic sauce might be made of:

  • Soy sauce: For umami and saltiness.
  • Chicken broth: For depth of flavor and liquid base.
  • Oyster sauce: For sweetness and a savory depth.
  • Rice wine or rice vinegar: For acidity and brightness.
  • Sesame oil: For a nutty flavor.
  • Sugar or honey: To balance the salty flavors.
  • Garlic and ginger: For aromatic flavors.
  • Cornstarch: To thicken the sauce and help it adhere to the other ingredients.
