Stir Fry ~ Fast and Frugal...

A few things that the Brainy Gourmet has always advocated and will continue to do: fast, frugal and delicious. How to arrive at that? Do what the Brainy Gourmet started doing, adhere to your preferences in terms of taste: sweet and savory.

In respect to savory, there is included preferences for saltiness, bitterness and spiciness... Once you understand your preferences, you won't really need a recipe. You will come to know through practice just how much of one thing over another makes the taste you like.

Begin with a stir fry dish because that is where sweet and savory meet up in a flash in a pan. And, you won't go broke experimenting since you can begin with simple ingredients: fresh green and red peppers, zucchini, broccoli, silvered carrots and chicken breast strips... or just opt to keep it veggie.

The usual spices go like this: red pepper flakes, garlic powder, salt, coriander, turmeric/cumin, ginger and soy sauce.  You may not know it but in the coriander is a bit of sweetness. For the sweeter taste bud, use honey and even cooking sherry will add sweetness.

Also, keep in mind that the veggies used contain sugar. Carrots and broccoli have enough glucose to sweetened any dish; but those are my taste buds talking.

For this stir fry, lean pork loin was used cut into small half dollar sizes and seared in garlic infused olive oil; and of course, adding my preferences for sweet and savory. Green and red pepper were tossed in last so that they remained crisp... all of which was served over brown rice noodles.
