20-minute Vegetable & Char Sui Stir Fry Recipe
Stir-fries are usually fast – perfect for weeknight meals. And they are healthy and delicious. This 20-minute Vegetable & Char Sui Stir Fry is especially quick. You can use any vegetables you happen to have in your fridge, but the combination in the recipe is very good. You can also change the flavor by using different Asian spices. There are several good ones available at the grocery stores nowadays.
Char Siu Pork is available at some grocery and warehouse stores, but it is easy to make at home. I like to keep it on hand in my freezer so it’s available to me at all times.
