How-to Make a Stir Fry

Select a skillet or wok big enough to accommodate the food you'll be stir-frying. If food is crowded, it'll steam. If needed, stir-fry food in batches.

Chop and measure all ingredients, keeping them close at hand. Begin by stir-frying the poultry in a small amount of oil.

Remove meat from skillet when it's cooked through. Stir-fry the vegetables in the remaining oil.

Stir soy sauce mixture and add to the pan. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Add poultry and pasta; heat through. Sprinkle with nuts.

Cut steak against the grain when slicing it in preparation to stir fry. That way, the meat will be nice and tender when you stir fry it.
