Stir-frying is a cooking method that involves stirring and frying food at the same time. The food is lifted and turned as it cooks quickly in just enough oil to prevent sticking. Follow these suggestions to make stir-frying work for you:
- Cooking food fast is the key to good stir-frying.
- Cutting the food into small, thin pieces and cooking small amounts at one time make the quick cooking possible.
- When cooked quickly, vegetables keep their crispness and color, and meats stay tender and juicy.
