I’d have to say, I think stir-fry is one of the most beloved recipes of all time.  Why? Besides it tasting so good, it’s incredibly easy to make. So why purchase ready-made frozen stir-fry from your local grocery store (like I admittedly used to do) when you can just make your own? It’s equally delicious without all the preservatives AND you get to customize to your liking, adding your favorite vegetables and protein source.
