How to Make Stir Fry Vegetables (Yasai Itame)
Stir-frying vegetables is a great way to keep in maximum nutrients. It’s also a relatively healthy dish that’s simple and quick to prepare. You can use any vegetables that you have available in your pantry. Of course meat and/or seafood can be included as well but pork is the predominant choice of meat when making this dish.
I wanted to make this dish as healthy as possible so I omitted meats and seafood from this dish. As for the sauce, there are endless possibilities. You can use soy sauce instead of salt and instant dashi. You may also use chicken powder, oyster sauce or fish sauce as replacement for instant dashi.
One of the most important aspect of cooking stir-fry is to make sure your wok or pan is very hot and that you do not over cook your vegetables. The vegetables will continue to cook as you remove it from your wok or pan so it is best that you do not overcook it.
