Recipe: Stir-Fry

U’ll probably need:

1 x RED ONION
1 x CHILI
1 X SPRING ONION
1 x STICK OF CELERY (OPTIONAL)
3/4 x CLOVES OF GARLIC
GINGER x However much u want really.

I’m not really sure about the veg cause I just buy a pack of it from ASDA
http://groceries.asda.com/asda-webstore/landing/home.shtml#/search/stir-fry
The staple seems to be cabbage, bean sprouts and thinly sliced (peeled really) carrots.
So I guess I’ll add them to the list:

THINY SLICED CARROTS x LOADS?
BEAN SPROUTS x GO MAD
CABBAGE x A SERIOUS AMOUNT
EXTACY x 7
LOLS x PRICELESSS
THEN BASICALLY WHATEVER ELSE VEG U WANT. U COULD HAVE PEPPERS OR MANGE TOUTS OR EVEN SOME SORT OF BEAN. THE MIND BOGGLES.

Right so. You basically chop up all ur veg and get it sorted.
I think its important that u heat ur wok loads. So basically put it on a hob and add a bit of olive oil,
then when u see the oil start to steam add ur first bit of veg (ie. ur onion and chili etc.).
Constantly stir it (so none of it burns) for about a minute, maybe a bit less (basically when ye can start to see/smell it cooking).
Then add the rest of ur veg (ie. cabbage etc.) and continue to stir.
Ye can really just see/smell when its starting to cook but it should take about 2 or 3 minutes I think?
When its vaguely cooked I add my sauces. SO its

1 TEASPOON X SESAME OIL
2 TEASPOON X SOY SAUCE
1 TEASPOON X OYSTER/FISH SAUCE
A BIT OF CHILI SAUCE DEPENDING ON HOW HOT U WANT IT, NOT TOO MUCH ANYWAY.

To be honest I use a table spoon for my sauces now (so replace teaspoon with tablespoon for those measurements), but I guess it really just depends how much u want.

Right so just stir all them in for about another minute (not too long really, just til they’re all up in the veg).
Then it should all basically be cooked and thats when I take it off the hob.
Then I add my noodles, I just stick them in the wok and stir until its all mixed together. I don’t bother heating them or anything cause they warm up in the wok.

ASDA also provides my noodles ready-cooked so I’m not exactly sure what the story is with them but the thin ones are rice noodles and the thicker ones are egg noodles.
To be honest I think the egg noodles are better but the rice ones definitely look classier.
If u were to cook ur own noodles I guess u’d just kind of precook them and then add them in at the end anyway?

Sorry u probly know all this already, basically my secret is ASDA, but I guess one could simulate ASDA pretty good if ye just buy some nice veg and noodles.
Also, I just went off a Jamie Oliver recipe to begin with but I can’t find it and when I’m looking for it now its giving me completely different recipes
so I MAY be completely wrong, but I THINK its nice enough anyway.

(PSST! THE SECRET INGREDIENT IS BELIEVING IN  URSELF)
