The beautiful thing about stir fry is (everything) they come together quickly, they are a great way to pack in those veggies and they are a knockout for the taste-buds. Why I don’t make stir fry as a weekly regular in this house, I’ll never know, because they are a dinner even the most novice chef can succeed at. Not to mention, Handsome’s eyes light up the moment flank steak and the big heavy iron wok appear. I smile too, knowing he is going to eat more colorful vegetables then he can possible pick around.

Personally, the prep work is the best part of a stir-fry. Chopping vegetables into thin strips is a great stress reliever after a long day of work.

(Pass the Sushi would like to insert a disclaimer here stating that we don’t recommend operating sharp objects after one of those days at work without first sipping a martini).

It’s not the fastest prep work you’ll do in the kitchen, but it is one of those tasks that offers its simple rewards when everything is all said and done.

This was one of those meals inspired by genuinely wanting to use an ingredient purchased at the market a few days before, udon noodles The noodles were the inspiration behind this ‘throw everything we have in the pot’ supper. This meal was flavorful with hardly any remnants worth saving. The udon noodles were very long and I left them that way when I served dinner because they brought out the kid in me, taking my time to wrap large clumps round my chopsticks (bad table etiquette I know, but fun nonetheless)

  4. I’m dangerous with a knife after a martini 🙂 Stir fry’s are on my rotation – love how colorful all those veggies are! What kind of wok/skillet is that?

    1. We have a huge heavy iron skillet. I love it!

  5. I really love the colors and flavors of this dish Kita! It includes some of my favorites and I’ll be trying it soon! Beautiful!

  6. I love stir fry because you can be so inventive. I usually end up with a lot of bottles of sauce with only a little in each in the fridge. I love mixing them to see what flavor sauce I end up with in my stir fry. I just love the colors in your stir fry.

  7. This looks seriously delicious. I love stir fry; I never think to make it at home, but now I have this great recipe. Thanks!

  8. This stir fry looks fabulous! Love how vibrant, colorful and healthy it looks! The pictures are fabulous too.. Thanks for sharing!

  9. yum! I tried to make homemade udon noodles about a week ago but they were a little too thick. I should stick to learning good udon recipes before I try to make the noodles from scratch!

  10. This looks amazing! I love all the bright veggies 🙂

    I need to make stir fries more often too. They’re so good and so simple. Plus I can pretend to be a chef while I try to chop the vegetables quickly.

  11. Made this tonight for dinner. It was delish!! Love all of the colors.

    Did you marinate the meat at all before cooking? I have a piece of steak I want to use and I thought a stir fry would be great so I picked up some udon noodles, veggies, and a teriyaki marinade/sauce just didn’t know if I should marinate the meat.

    1. Depends. Sometimes if I have 30 minutes of forethought I toss the steak in a bit of the mix (goes for any of my beef dinners). But if not, the sauce on this goes a long way 🙂

  13. definitely know what im making for dinner tonight! looks delicious.. thanks for the recipe!
