Stir-frying is a Chinese cooking technique in which ingredients are fried in a small amount of very hot oil while being stirred or tossed in a wok. For Lamb stir-fry, the only effort needed is to cook the lamb strips for about 6-7 minutes before incorporating them with other vegetables and sauce. This is done to avoid undercooking or overcooking of the strips. I like to keep my recipes simple, flavorful, and less time-consuming. This recipe is excellent when you have just under 20 minutes to get a meal ready. It tastes best when served with steamed rice or just on its own with a raw green salad.
