Do you prefer to watch recipes? Watch me put together a stir-fry kit.
Keeping a stir-fry kit in your freezer guarantees you a quick & easy dinner. And it’s so easy to do!
- These kits are easy to multiple, so they make a great use of meat from the warehouse club.
- If you have veggies but not the meat, or vice versa, you can certainly create just a partial kit. If you do that, just be sure to make a note to yourself that you’ll need the rest of the ingredients!!
- It may seem strange to include uncooked rice but, if you’re like me, more than once you’ve realized you’re missing a key staple, just when you’re ready to cook dinner. This guarantees you have what you need! I do this anytime I freeze an Asian dish.
- Since you’re using a freezer ziptop bag on the outside, the inside bags don’t need the protection of freezer bags, as well, so you can get away with regular bags. The gallon-size bag stays clean, so it’s easy to wipe out and reuse.
Stir-fry Freezer Kits
Favorite stir-fry veggies, sliced thinly
Meat (chicken, beef, pork), sliced thinly
Quart-size ziptop bag
Sandwich-size ziptop bag
Gallon-size freezer ziptop bag
In the gallon-size bag, add your uncooked rice. In your quart-size bag, add your meat and any seasonings you want on it. Your veggies go in the sandwich-size bag.
Since the video, I have changed my method a bit since the video. I’m no longer putting a sauce on the meat but making a different sauce and then I freeze in a snack-size bag (in the kit) or in a small glass jar.
Everything (minus the glass jar) goes into the gallon-size bag and the bag goes into your freezer.
Thaw bag several hours or overnight. Prepare your rice as directed. After your pan is heated through, add your meat. Remove to bowl while you cook your veggies. Combine it all back in the pan, along with your sauce. Serve over rice.
