1/2 lb lean beef, pork, chicken, or fish, with bones removed
4-6 cups of fresh vegetables, diced
3 tbsp peanut oil
1-3 tbsp of water

1 tbsp soya sauce
1 tbsp sherry or saki (rice wine)
1 tsp corn starch
1 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp ground fresh ginger

Makes 3 to 4 servings.


1) Mix the Marinade ingredients in a medium size bowl.

2) Cut the meat into thin strips, 1" long. Then soak the strips in the
marinade for at least 15 minutes.

3) Set the temperature of an electric non-stick wok to 360 F. Put
1 tbsp of oil in the wok, and wait for the wok to heat up. When the
wok is hot, the red power indicator light will go off.

4) Put the marinated meat in the wok and stir constantly, for a few
minutes, with a couple of wooden spatulas or spoons. Remove the meat once it is brown on the outside, but is still a little pink on the inside.

5) Wipe the wok clean with some paper towels. Be careful not to burn your hands on the hot wok surface!

6) Add 2 tbsp of oil, and wait for the wok to heat up again.

7) Add the vegetables and stir constantly until they are soft, about 5

8) Add some water, amount depending on how much water has collected in the wok from the vegetables. Then cover the wok and let the vegetables steam for 3 minutes.

9) Add the browned meat and stir constantly until everything is hot, a
couple of minutes. Serve immediately with brown rice.
