Expert Tips

* Stir-fry sauce can be found in the Asian foods section of large supermarkets or in Asian markets. If unavailable, use any other purchased oriental-style sauce. ** Fresh cut stir-fry vegetables (which may include broccoli, celery, cauliflower, pea pods, red bell pepper and/or carrots) can be found in the refrigerated fresh produce section of large supermarkets. If unavailable, use thawed frozen mixed vegetables; no need to cook 1 minute in boiling water.
