Share This Recipe

This dish is perfect for those who love the flavour and heat of ginger, and the recipe is extremely easy to prepare and cook. We have made ours with chicken, but you could also use pork, beef, shrimp or even tofu.

The great thing about stir fries are that they are not only quick and easy, but also healthy, filling and delicious. As always, be sure to have all of the ingredients cut and prepared prior to starting to cook, and cook over a high heat. This great tasting meal will be ready in under 10 minutes!
