In a bit of a hurry, I was throwing together one of my go-to dinners, stir-fried whatevericanfind. Today’s particular adventure was sidetracked when my wife intervened and re-directed my stirfry into becoming a yakisoba instead. Can anyone say upgrade?
My wife boiled the soba (Japanese buckwheat noodles), while I continued with my original plans with my cast iron skillet.
- 2 Garlic cloves, diced
- 2 Kaffir Lime leaves, diced (or 1 whole juiced lime)
- 3 tbsp oil (I use canola for stirfry)
- Cooked and sliced meat (spicy sausage in this case)
- 3 cups various chopped veggies (peppers, fungus, broccoli, snow/snap peas, etc)
- 3 tbsp soysauce
- 3 tbsp cooking sake
After heating the skillet with oil, add the garlic and cook for a few minutes. Add the meat to cook and brown. Dump in your veggies, soy, lime and sake. Stir-fry until veggies until desired crispness.
With the soba, we added the noodles (being cooked/drained/rinsed) right before the veggies were done. Stirfried to reheat and lightly colour the noodles.
