Simple ways to make a quick stirfry

Stir-frying

Stir-frying is a way to cook food quickly by cutting into small pieces and storing constantly in a lightly oiled wok or frying pan over high heat. Woks are thinner than regular frying pans so they heat up really quickly. When stir-frying it's really important to shake, stir and toss the food in the wok to keep it moving and stop it from burning. Ingredients for stir-fries are usually sliced up quite thinly to help them cook quickly. Steak, chicken and fish are generally used when stir-frying. Ingredients:
