Stir Frying - Quickest way to cook

Stir frying is the easiest and most nutritious way of cooking food especially vegetables because it takes less time to cook and therefore all the nutrients of the vegetables are intact because they won't be over cooked. Meat and vegetables lose their nutrients if they are cooked for longer time.

For me, I like this method of cooking because it is easier and quicker to cook food. If you have not got enough time to cook, stir frying is the answer. The most time it takes for me is half an hour including preparation. The only thing with stir frying, is you have to get all ingredients cut up or sliced and ready before you start stir frying as this is really quick cooking.

With this kind of cooking, you can mix and match your ingredients. It doesn't have to be perfect, you can experiment which ingredients goes better with the kind of meat that you want to use. You can even just use vegetables on their own without meat if preferred, good for vegetarians.

Got quite a few ideas for stir fry but I will start with the pork stir fry first. This is how I cook it. This is my own recipe, I tried it and I like it so I keep cooking it. What I do sometimes is just change the meat like pork to chicken or beef or I just use vegetables or just change the vegetable ingredients.

I just like easy cooking method really. As much as I enjoy cooking, I don't want to be a slave of the cooker and get stressed cooking. Pork meat is also cheap to buy so it saves you and I some money and time.

Some useful Tips for stir frying

With this recipe, you can use onions (bulbs) instead of spring onions. Also if you like it to be hot (spicy), you can use more hot chilli sauce or black pepper. I use sweet chilli sauce because I don't like it hot or too spicy. You can use the hot chilli sauce if you like it spicy or you can use ground chilli or fresh chillies as one of the ingredients.

If you are cooking for more people just increase the amount of your ingredients. It is better to marinade the meat for longer before cooking then it taste better.
