One gift that I received at my wedding almost ten years ago (wow I’ve been married that long?!?) was a stir-fry cookbook with a $20 bill stuck inside and a note that said “buy yourself a wok!” Sooo… that’s what I did!! I still have the original one I bought those ten years ago and I love using it. There are so many good things about using a wok:
- You end up using more vegetables in your cooking = healthier dinner!
- It’s a one-pan dinner = easy clean-up!
- Your house doesn’t heat up just from using it (mine is the plug-in kind, not the one you use on the stove top) = perfect summer dinner!
As I was taking pictures of this dish, my husband asked me why I was putting this on the blog because “don’t most people know how to make stir-fry?” Okay, so I know stir-fry is one of those really easy go-to recipes that everyone can make, but I still wanted to share this one with you. I love the sauce and flavor. It’s not overly soy-saucy (I just totally made that up, ha!) and you can play around with whatever you have in your crisper drawer. My boys especially love the snap peas and mini corns!
