I too like my stir-fries simple. These are the types of veggies I use, but not all of them at the same time:

Snow peas
sweet peas (must be fresh or frozen)
carrot (bias sliced and fresh)
onion
bok choy
celery
baby corn
straw mushrooms (I know, the mushrooms aren't a veggie)
button mushrooms
portabella mushrooms
water chestnuts
spinach
sweet corn kernals
fresh green beans
any colot sweet pepper (prefer red, orange, and yellow bell pepper)
peanuts (actually a legume, like peas and beans, not a true nut)

Grains (pre cooked):
brown rice
wild rice

Meats:
beef
pork
any kind of poultry
shrimp
scallops
clams
lump crab meat (rare due to price)
lump lobster meat (rare due to price)
fresh tuna
tilapia
pollok

Seasonings:
frehs garlic
onion
ginger
lite soy sauce
oyster sauce
5-spice powder
cayenne pepper
salt
hoison sauce
plumb sauce
sesame oil

Nut-like things:
peanuts
cashews
sesame seeds

Fruits:
madarine orange pieces
pineapple chunks
fresh, pitted cherries
lychee fruit

I mix and match ingredients that compliment each other. I serve with freshly made noodles that have been splashed with EVOO, or if made with rice, serve as is.

O have a large flat-bottomed, high-carbon steel wok made by Atlas. I have been using it for about 15 years now. It's a wonderful thing. Like my cast iron, it is seasoned well enough that almost nothing sticks to it. And it's great for making muhc more than just a stir-fry. But that's a topic for another forum.

Cloud ears are a mushroom used in Asian cooking. For more information on cloud ears check out the website below.

heck yeah!! stir-fry is one of my super faves, and tends to be one of those things that just whatever is lying around in the fridge gets to jump in. 2 things i *highly* reccomend: when heating the oil in your wok, once you've got it coating in a nice thin layer, sprinkle in the sesame seeds. by the time you've grabbed the meat to toss in, they'll be toasted and then they'll stick to the outside of the meat since it's still raw. the other thing is if you can find an asian grocery store, they sell beef and pork sliced very thin (imagine strips of bacon 3x as tall as usual, but that length and thickness), and either one of these works beautifully in your stir-fry.

Oh no! I'm not going to start comparing the size of everyone's wok!
That's probably best left to a discussion board that deals with other subjects.

I would say more, but I don't want to get brained, or banned, or both!

Bucky;

May your muse gently enter your home with stealth and grace, an whap you on the nape of your hairy neck.

Methinks you need a woman in your home to quell those boyish urges, and tell you how to be fit for society. But then again, what hope is there for one who swims the Hudson River, and eats the fish (or whatever else is floating around in there) from the same? Tell me; do people who swim in the Hudson really glow in the dark?

Up here in the pristine waters of Lake Superior, we don't glow, but we do take on the most amazing hue of blue after entering that cold water.
