Tips for Making the Best Stir-Fry

If you want to make a stir-fry that will leave your family begging for more, then you need to follow these tips. Making an excellent stir fry takes some concentration and effort, but in the end it's totally worth it.

First, you want to make sure your skillet gets as hot as possible. An extremely hot skillet is essential to cooking an excellent stir-fry. If you have a gas range, pre-heat your skillet for five to ten minutes with nothing in it before you start cooking. If you have an electric range, don't pre-heat your skillet. It could damage it. Instead, set your electric range to medium-high.

Use a high-heat vegetable oil as your oil. Generally, you'll find this as a refined safflower or sunflower oil. Both of these oils have a neutral flavor, so you won't be able to taste it in your stir-fry. If you can't find either of these oils, peanut oil will work just fine. Keep in mind that peanut oil will introduce a nutty taste to your stir-fry.

Throwing ice-cold meat into your skillet will cool it, negating the effort you just went to getting it hot. Make sure your meat is properly defrosted. If it's still quite cold when you take it out of the fridge, leave it out on the counter for up to 20 minutes to warm it up. Then, get to cooking!
