broccoli

Everyone makes stir fried veggies of some kind and sprinkles on some soy sauce. Here is a Thai version. The key to success here, as in any stir-frying, is to cook one serving at a time. Too much food in the wok slows cooking time and defeats the purpose of the high heat of the wok. Because cooking time is so quick per serving, you can get prepare everyone else’s serving and still get to the table quickly to join the others.
