When it comes to stir-frying, it merely means cooking your food at very high heat for a very few minutes. Food that is cooked through stir-frying needs to be cut into tiny pieces, pieces that need to be uniform, to ensure that the food cooks evenly and thoroughly. This is a method that requires your full attention to prevent the food from sticking on the pan. A wok is the best way to stir-fry. Ideal foods to stir-fry include mushrooms, scallops, cabbage, pork, and broccoli.
