Simple Stir-fried Dishes

posted in: Food, Lifestyle | 0

Today I will share with you how to make simple, Asian stir-fried dishes which could be any, using soy sauce, fish sauce, oyster sauce, or broth as seasoning. Just use whatever sauces you have in the kitchen. There’s no need to go buy new sauces since you don’t cook Asian food every day anyway. Stir-fried dishes are always quick, simple, delicious, and healthy since the main ingredients are vegetables. 

This dish is for 2 People

Cooking time is about 30 Minutes or less


  • 300-400 Grams of pork, cut into pieces (you can use pork, chicken, beef, tofu, or just vegetables)
  • 3-4 Cloves of garlic, roughly chopped
  • 1 Pack of fresh baby corn & snow peas, halved it (you can use all sorts of vegetables you like that are good for stir-fry)
  • 1 Pack of mushroom, cut it in half, if they’re big mushrooms cut it into 4 Pieces
  • 200-250 ml of chicken broth (or water)
  • Fish sauce, soy sauce, oyster sauce, any Asian sauces that you have
  • 1-2 Teaspoons of sugar (optional)
  • 3-4 Tablespoons cooking oil
  • 2-3 Teaspoons of tapioca flour


  1. Heat oil in wok or large pan over medium heat, add garlic and stir-fry it quickly.

2. Stir-fry the garlic quickly until it starts turning a little golden-brown and smelling good.

3. Add pork and fry the pork quickly and don’t be scared to burn the garlic. If you stir-fry it quickly, the garlic won’t burn.

4. Fry the pork until it’s about 80% finished.

5.  Add mushroom, continue to stir-fry until the pork and the mushroom are completely cooked. 

6. You can add seasoning while frying the pork and the mushroom. Or, you can add it at last when all ingredients are in the wok or pan. I don’t tell you here how many tablespoons or teaspoons you will need for the soy sauce, fish sauce, or oyster sauce since Asian food is about tasting and experimenting the flavors until you create the taste that you like. Normally, it won’t be more than 1-2 Tablespoons for each sauce for a dish for 2 People. But again, add it and taste it to your liking.

7. Add baby corn and stir-fry it until it’s about 70% done, then add snow peas.

8. Stir-fry everything together quickly for about a few minutes.

9. Then add chicken broth or water.

10. Mix tapioca flour with cold water to create a liquid, then add the liquid bit by bit into the wok, to create a thick sauce or gravy. When you get the thickness you like, turn off the heat, and remove the wok from the heat.

11. Serve it right away on top of fresh cooked jasmine rice.
