Best Stir-Fry Veggies
If you don’t have a Stir-fry vegetable mix from the grocery store, you can just grab some broccoli, bell peppers, and onions. You want to choose vegetables that will cook evenly. This means avoiding ones with a high water content, like cucumbers or tomatoes. You also want to make sure the vegetables you choose have some texture. This will help them stand up to the other ingredients in the stir fry and give it some much-needed crunch.
Tips for Success
Thinking about various things that you want to keep in mind, you want to make sure that you do the Spicy Sriracha Shrimp Stir-Fry right. Remember to always have a clean kitchen area when you decide to cook and clean up well after you are done.
Gather all your ingredients before cooking too. Have you ever started cooking a recipe only to realize you’re missing an ingredient? It’s the worst.

That’s why, before you start cooking anything, you should make sure you have all the ingredients you need. That way, you can avoid those pesky mid-cooking trips to the store. Trust me, your future self will thank you.
So before you head over to the stove, take a quick inventory of everything you’ll need for the recipe. That way, you can sit back and relax knowing that everything is right where it should be.
