Asian Vegetable Stir Fry

One kitchen hack that has saved me time and angst is the use of vegetable stir-fry mixes. They are available in the produce section of most major supermarkets and come in various vegetable combinations.

The one I picked for this dish was an Asian assortment of red cabbage, carrots, broccoli, kale, brussels sprouts, and snow peas. With the vegetables already pre-cut and ready to go, these stir-fry mixes are convenient to use and are perfect for busy weeknights.

And they’re pretty economical, too! One package that costs about $3, half a pound of diced pork belly, and a dollop of oyster sauce thrown into the mix, and you have a scrumptious dish for a family of four.

This Asian vegetable stir-fry is not only easy to prepare and budget-friendly, but it’s customizable as well. I love sinful bits of pork belly but feel free to substitute shrimp or chicken if you like. You can also turn this vegetable dish into a meatless meal by swapping the pork with crispy tofu cubes (check out my quick tutorial on how to fry tofu).

The downside is you can’t choose what type of vegetables get in the mix, and they all get added to the pan at the same time regardless of how long they need to cook, so some end up overdone and mushy.

You’d need about four cups of assorted veggies if you’d like to use this recipe without a stir-fry mix. Cut the vegetables into bite-size, so they cook quickly, and add each type of vegetable to the pan one or two minutes apart, beginning with what cooks longer.
