Stir-Fry cuts…..

 

For even cooking, cut all the ingredients the same size. Because stir-fry is a quick a cooking method the whole time while you stir-frying you have to use the highest heat to quickly cook the food. So it’s important to keep the food at an equal size. For example, if you stir-fry pork or chicken with vegetables, try to cut them in equal size, like julienned, slice or cubes.

Save some money, fill that freezer…….

 

A full freezer is more economical to run as the cold air doesn’t need to circulate so much, so less power is needed. If you have lots of space free, fill plastic bottles half full with water and use them to fill gaps. Alternatively, fill the freezer with everyday items you’re bound to use.
