This is a simple stir fry. It is easy to vary the veggies or the meat based on your family’s preferences, but this is one of my family’s favorite. I’ve found the two things that make my stir fries turn out better are pre-heating the pan and only adding one ingredient at a time so the pan doesn’t cool down too much.
