Basic Stir-fry

Basic Stir-fry

My mom made this stir-fry for us a lot when I was growing up.  The original name was Chinatown Almond Chicken.  It is quick and easy and you can use any meats or veggies that you have on hand.  I like using fresh ginger and adding garlic powder and crushed red pepper flakes.

It is a great way to get your kids to eat veggies because the stir-fry glaze completely coats and disguises the veggies. 


1 tsp ginger (I like using fresh minced ginger.)

1 tsp garlic powder, to taste

1/4 tsp crushed red pepper flakes, to taste

2 tsp sugar

1 Tbsp cornstarch

3 Tbsp water

3 Tbsp soy sauce

1/3 cup dry white wine

Mix all of the ingredients and place over medium-high heat.  When the sauce thickens, add bite-sized chunks of cooked meats and vegetables and toss until warm.  Serve over steamed white or brown rice.

Veggie ideas:



Water chestnuts

Baby corn

Bamboo shoots

Snow peas


Bell peppers
