Cook a quick dinner with stir-frying

stir fryIf you’d like to cook a quick meal, you’re not alone; Culinary Team Member David Hayes feels the same way after work. He shares his favorite method to cook a fast dinner: stir-fry.

My favorite cooking method is a very fickle beast; it really depends on my mood and the day.  If I’m just getting home at 10:30 p.m. from a long day at work, quick and easy is the ticket.   It really is hard to come home and make a full dinner when that’s what you just did for the past 8+ hours.  I all too often rely on the old frozen pizza…

The method I find the most pleasure with is stir-frying.  The speed that you go from ingredients to finished meal is perfect for those of us who need instant gratification.  If you do a little planning, you can feel like a TV chef and have everything mise en place (the term “to have everything in its place”; measured and ready to use).  Be it Asian or Italian, or a little bit of everything, if you have your starch (noodles, rice, or potatoes) cooked, you can have dinner on the table in 10 minutes–and that includes setting the table too! All you need is a little sliced meat, vegetables, oil, and a hot non-stick pan.
