3 steps to prepare stir fry. Thank you to Jess for sharing this………..

1 – Always cook your meat first in small batches to seal it and keep it tender. Adding too much meat will reduce the temperature of the wok and make it stew, resulting in tough, flavourless meat. Don’t overcook the meat at this stage as it will continue to cook when it’s returned to the wok.

2 – Stir-fry onions first, then add hard vegetables such as carrot and broccoli. Quick-cooking vegetables, such as snow peas, leafy greens and bean sprouts, should be added towards the end of cooking. If using vegies that have a combination of both textures, such as gai laan, add the stems first and the leaves later.

3 – Add sauces and pre-cooked noodles last. They only need to be stir-fried until just heated through.

Easy Shrimp Stir-Fry with Green Pepper, Pineapple and Bacon
This sweet, spicy and super-easy shrimp-and-vegetable stir-fry starts with a very small amount of bacon in the wok, which creates drippings that add tons of smoky flavor to the vegetables and shrimp that go in next. Keep the salt in check by using reduced-sodium tamari sauce. To complete this easy healthy dinner, add cooked brown rice……………….

Grilled Blackened Shrimp Tacos
Give juicy shrimp tacos a Cajun flavor spin with spices and a quick sear on a hot grill. An easy avocado mash adds creaminess to cool off the spicy kick………

White Shrimp Pizza
If you love shrimp Alfredo on pasta noodles, you’ll really enjoy this pizza recipe. The Alfredo-based white sauce coats individual whole-wheat pizza crusts which are topped with grilled shrimp, bacon, and slices of red onion………..

Tonight’s Menu: Chicken Stir -Fry w/ Baby Carrots, Cut Green Beans, Water Chestnuts, Bean Sprouts, and Mushrooms

 

 

Just a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea this morning for Breakfast. This morning Mom had some errands to run so I drove. We first went to Jungle Jim’s International Market, love shopping there! Then I took her to the local shopping mall. Back home not much else going on. For Dinner tonight its Chicken Stir -Fry w/ Baby Carrots, Cut Green Beans, Water Chestnuts, Bean Sprouts, and Mushrooms.

 

 

 

 

 

To make the Stir – Fry I’ll need; Chicken, 1 package Hakubaku Organic Japanese Wheat Noodles, 1 can Whole Baby Carrots (drained), 1 small can Del Monte Cut Green Beans (drained), Sliced Water Chestnuts (drained), 1 can of Bean Sprouts (drained), 1 can Stir-Fry Mushrooms (drained), Chow Mein Noodles, Kikkoman Less Sodium Soy Sauce, and Extra Light Olive Oil. You can use Beef, Pork, or Shrimp instead of the Chicken. All will work great!

 

 

 

 

 

I’m using the leftover Chicken from last night’s Perdue Whole Roaster. Pulled all the leftover meat and this was my Chicken for the Stir-Fry. Next I grabbed a large nonstick skillet and sprayed it Pam Cooking Spray and added a tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil and heated the pan on medium heat. When heated I added my Pulled Chicken, Carrots, Green Beans, Water Chestnuts, Bean Sprouts, and Mushrooms. Stirred until mixed then added the Kikkoman Soy Sauce, you add this according to your taste. Stirred and heated everything until heated through. Removed it from the heat and covered it.

 

 

 

 

 

Next I boiled my Udon Noodles. I used a large pot and filled it 1/2 way with water. Heated the water to boiling and added my Noodles. Stirring, and cooked for 4 minutes. Drained them and added them to the Stir – Fry Skillet. Stirred until mixed and served! This hit the spot for Dinner! Topped a bowl of the Sir – Fry with some Chow Mein Noodles. Had a Diet Dr. Pepper to drink. For Dessert/Snack tonight a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn along with a Diet Dr. Pepper to drink.

 

 

 

 

 

 


Kikkoman Less Sodium Soy Sauce

Kikkoman Less Sodium Soy Sauce is brewed exactly the same way as all-purpose Kikkoman Soy Sauce. However, after the fermentation process is completed, approximately 40% of the salt is removed. Although there is less sodium in Less Sodium Soy Sauce, all the flavor and quality characteristics remain because it is aged before extracting the salt. However, to maintain this full flavor, we recommend using it during the latter stage of cooking in braising sauces, soups and stews, vegetables or stir-frys.

Ingredients
WATER, WHEAT, SOYBEANS, SALT, LACTIC ACID, SODIUM BENZOATE; LESS THAN 1/10 OF 1% AS A PRESERVATIVE.

When making Stir-fry in your Wok……..

Cook the meat first and take it out of the pan, to be added again at the end. This will allow you to cook the vegetables without overcooking the meat. Cook thicker and harder vegetables first, since they take longer. For example, tomatoes or thin slices of garlic will burn while sturdy carrots and broccoli are taking their time getting tender.

Cabbage Lo Mein
Jam-packed with a colorful medley of vegetables, this classic noodle dish relies on a bold sesame-soy sauce to tie all the flavors and textures together………

Spicy Thai Noodles
Sauces made with heavy creams are loaded with calories and saturated fat. This recipe uses a peanut sauce that has all the richness of a cream sauce but with heart-healthy fats instead. Be careful—if using a store-bought sauce, check the ingredients list for added sugars!……..

Black Bean Clams with Two Noodles
Zucchini noodles and shelf-stable stir-fry noodles combine for a hearty portion in this healthy stir-fry recipe. Chinese fermented black beans (they’re actually soybeans) lend a salty and savory backbone to this quick veggie-filled entree. They’re pungent, so a little goes a long way. Find them at Asian grocery stores, well-stocked supermarkets and online………

When using a Wok…….

Always let the pan heat for a few minutes before putting ingredients in it. Two or 3 tablespoons of any vegetable oil is all you need, and give the oil at least a minute to heat up, too. Wok on!

Today’s Menu: Leftovers – Stir-Fry Shrimp with Soba Noodles

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I toasted a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin that I topped with Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam. I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Still not sure how much snow we are going to end up with. Hello Spring! Around 11:00 a Social Worker came over for a couple of hours to discuss options on where we can place Dad for his final days. We did everything we could to keep him home with us but the Dementia is starting to take over. He’s been seeing things and people that are not there. He screams a lot and refuses to do what we ask of him to do to help himself. We are so sad but it’s going to be for the best. For Dinner tonight Leftover Stir-Fry Shrimp with Soba Noodles. It’s been a very stressful day so I’m glad I had Leftovers to reheat. I’ve left the original post from yesterday, for ingredients and directions, below. Enjoy all!

 

To make this dish I’ll be using; a package of KAME Soba Stir-Fry Noodles, a bag of Meijer Frozen Large Raw Shrimp, a can of Reese Sliced waterChestnuts, La Choy Beans Sprouts, a small can of Del Monte Cut Green Beans, a can of Kroger Whole Carrots, 1 tsp minced Garlic, 1 tsp sugar (Splenda Sugar), McCormick Grinders of Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley, Kikkoman Less Sodium Soy Sauce, and La Choy Rice Noodles (for topping and optional).

 

 

 

To prepare it, I started by preparing the Baby Carrots. I boiled them in a small sauce pan, boiling them until they were not quite fork tender. I parboiled them because Carrots take a bit to cook and by boiling them first they will get done in the wok with the other ingredients. As the Carrots were boiling I also prepared the Shrimp. In a bowl mix the shrimp with 1 tsp Splenda Sugar and a dash of McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley . Marinate for 15 minutes. Next cooked them in a bit of butter just until pink. Remove Shrimp from the skillet and set aside along with Baby Carrots.

 

 

In a separate skillet I prepared the Soba Noodles. Using a medium size skillet, I added 1/2 Tbsp. of Extra Virgin Olive Oil and heated on medium high. I added the Noodles and the Soy Sauce, stirred and cooked for 2 minutes. Removed from the heat and set aside.

 

 

 

 

 

Using the same skillet as the Shrimp was cooked I added a tablespoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil (cooking on medium high) along with the Butter, Baby Carrots, Cut Green Beans, Water Chestnuts and 1 tsp minced Garlic. Then seasoned them with the Sea Salt and the Peppercorn Medley. Cooked it 2 minutes and then added 2 tablespoons of water and the cooked Carrots, Shrimp, and Noodles. Continued to cook everything for an additional 1 minute, stirring it often. Then I added the skillet of Soba Noodles on top of everything, stirring till mixed. Remove from heat and serve! Love this dish, everything spot on! The Noodles, Shrimp, Vegetables, along with the seasoning and Soy Sauce combine to make one delicious dish. Really love the KA*ME Udon Stir Fry Noodles, they taste so fresh! For Dessert/Snack tonight a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.
