How to make Stir-Fry Noodles
Prepare the noodles according to package instructions. Drain the noodles and rinse with cold water.
Heat the wok/frying pan and add 1 tablespoon of oil. If you're using garlic (or other aromatics) add now. Stir-fry for 10 to 20 seconds on a high heat.
Stir-fry any meat that you are using: Sear for 1 minute without stirring, then stir-fry another minute mixing with the other ingredients.
Add the vegetables and salt and stir-fry for 1 - 2 minutes until everything is nearly cooked.
Add the cooked noodles.
Swirl in any liquid sauce ingredients, like soy sauce/sweet chilli sauce. Stir and toss the noodles and other stir-fry ingredients to coat evenly and cook for a further minute.
