How To Stir Fry
- Start with a wok or a large deep skillet to stir-fry. I’ve tried classic woks, countless skillets, and frying pans over the years. I now use this everyday pan to stir-fry and I absolutely love it.
- I typically use tongs or a fish spatula for stir-frying. You can use any sturdy wooden or metal spatula, but fish spatulas really are the ultimate turner, stirrer, stir-fry tool.
- Cut similar ingredients roughly the same size. Smaller pieces will cook faster, so making sure things are similar will keep things cooking evenly.
