The stir fry recipe I’m going to share is the simple plan I follow, but it is one of the most customizable recipes ever.

Stir Fry Recipe Instructions
The ingredients and instructions for a printable recipe card are below but here’s the basic idea ->>>
I begin by cooking the rice or pasta in a saucepan and then getting a little butter, coconut oil, or olive oil melting in a skillet on medium/low while I chop the fresh veggies (or open the bag of frozen ones) and pre-cooked meat (like yesterday’s crockpot chicken). Secondly, I season with salt and pepper and add our favorite soy sauce alternative without the insane amounts of sodium, Liquid Aminos or Coconut Aminos Sauce . Stir meat and vegetables until well-blended and saute’ about five minutes or to the level of crunchiness that you prefer.
What do we like in our stir fry recipe?
Always garlic, onions, carrots and broccoli. Sometimes jalapeno, sometimes not. Other veggies may be added like bell peppers, depending on what we have on hand. Always served over rice, quinoa, or pasta. Most of the time we only use the aminos listed above but for a treat, we add an Asian pink sauce. Now wasn’t that easy?
