stir fry

i’m new at this, what kind of oil works best with a wok for stir fry. i don’t want to sound dumb but, just don’t no. i thank you for any help

It’s your choice - vegetable oil is just fine. And depending on what you are stir-frying you can used sesame oil, peanut oil, olive oil, canola oil, etc.

BTW - in some recipes they used chicken broth (or broth), soy sauce, or stir fry sauce.

Here’s a nice recipe for one:

Yield: 4 cups

1/2 cup cornstarch
1/2 cup light corn syrup
2 1/2 cups chicken broth
1/2 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup dry sherry
1/4 cup cider vinegar
1 tablespoon garlic, minced
1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger
1/2 teaspoon ground red pepper

In 1 1/2-quart jar with tight-fitting lid combine all ingredients. Shake well. May be refrigerated 3 weeks.

To use in your favorite stir-fry, shake well and measure out 1 cup of sauce into heated wok or pan. Stir and cook until sauce boils; boil and stir 1 minute.

Add 1/4 pound meat (chicken, shrimp or beef) and about 1 cup of vegetables, stirring until heated through. Serve with rice or noodles.

i can’t thank you enough for the help you give me on this site. now it’s time to try it out thanks again
