- Ensure all ingredients are roughly equal in size to ensure cooking is even
- Add the ingredients that take longer to cook first such as onions, celery and carrots
- When cutting meat for stir fry, always cut meat across the grain
- Always have your wok nice and hot, you should be able to see a heat haze when it is ready to go. Try not to burn the oil as this may affect the taste of the meat
- Cook in small batches (200g) to keep the heat in your wok.
