Be food safe
  • Avoid cross-contamination after preparing raw meat by washing all surfaces with hot water and soap before working with raw vegetables.
  • Cut meat into small pieces to cook thoroughly.
  • Refrigerate leftovers within two hours of eating.
Preparation tips
  • Place steak in freezer for 30-60 minutes for easier slicing. Cut across the grain through tough muscle fibers, which makes it more tender.
  • Make sure vegetables and meats are cut into bite-sized pieces. Stir-fry uses high heat, so pieces must be small enough to cook through without burning.
  • If skillet is full of meat and vegetables, first stir-fry meat completely, add back at end.
  • Use reduced-sodium soy sauce.
