  • Drizzle oil around sides of stir-fry pan; tilt pan to distribute evenly. Heat oil in pan on HIGH until oil faintly smokes. (If oil smokes too much, pan is too hot.)

  1. I needed dinner fast and remembered that I had signed up to make this for PAC 2012. I had all of the stuff at home and made it in a flash. It was great. The stir fry sauce I had was Szechuan so it had a bit of heat but it was still so good. Thank you for the inspiration. Don't need to pick up Chinese anymore if I keep all of this at home.
  2. Very yummy! I had frozen stir fry veggies, so I just added them when the chicken was no longer pink. (Didn't bother to remove chicken from the wok.) Since I didn't have any stir fry sauce, per se, I subbed a packet of beef and broccoli sauce mix and it came out great! Thanks, IGTBQ!!! Spring PAC 2009


My family has had the fortunate opportunity to live in differnet parts of the USA over the last few years. This has given us amazing chances to experience cuisine throughtout the nation but also blessed us with the ability to see everything this wonderful county has to offer. Not only in every new local have we created so many new & wonderful memories BUT, in every new location we have have been able to add new regional recipes to our family cookbook. Cooking in our home is newver a chore but a favorite hobby. My husband and I are very lucky that we have children that are always willing to try new food and actually love doing so! <img src="">
