Stir Fry

stirfry pan


Stir Fry and thrift go hand in hand.  You can put a lot of small leftovers in stir fry.  The most expensive part of the stir fry recipe is the meat. When you add meat to stir fry, you want it to be cut as thin as possible so that it will both cook quickly and you can use less meat. In order to cut the slices as thin as possible, put it in the freezer for a couple hours before you slice it.

Here are more tips to save money on Stir Fry.


- Invest in a good pan.  You will use it for years. Make sure it is thick enough not to burn your food and heats up nicely.

- Always use high quality olive oil for stir fry.  Other oils break down when they get hot enough for stir frying.

- Take advantage of leftover spaghetti, rice and other pasta and use them up with stir fry.
