Notes

When stir-frying, make sure all the ingredients are ready to go, and that includes the water and sauces. Peel, chop and measure everything before heating the wok, making sure everything is cut to a uniform size and thickness to ensure even cooking. The preparation of a stir-fry actually takes longer than the cooking.
