Stir-fry is fast and easy. Use these tips to help you make this quick mealtime favorite even easier.

No matter what kind of stir-fry you're cooking, make sure that all the ingredients are cut into approximately equal-sized pieces. Chop all your ingredients before you start cooking so that everything is ready to go when you are.

The best type of pan to use for stir-fry is a wok. It has deep sides that allow you to move ingredients that are done cooking to the cooler parts of the pan while other ingredients stay close to the heat. If you don't have a wok, though, you can use any type of skillet. Just make sure you stir everything often so it all cooks evenly.

Turn the heat on under your wok or skillet, add a little bit of oil, and put in your flavorings. Add the meat first to let it start cooking, and then add your vegetables a few minutes later.

A stir-fry dinner usually means quick cooking and cleanup, so it's a perfect meal for a busy weeknight.

You can take this one step further by purchasing several meals' needs at one time, whether it be for stir fry or for other any other meal that requires chopped meat.
