If you’re going to make a Chinese stir-fry at home, then you better learn some secrets. First, you need to make sure that your pan is extra hot. Since you probably don’t have a high-powered stove at home like what they have in the restaurants, you can compensate by letting the pan get super hot before you start cooking.
Another technique is to sear the meat or seafood first. Then remove it just before it cooks. Cook the vegetables. Bring the meat or seafood back at the end of the stir fry. Finally, allow your meat to sear. Don’t keep on poking or stirring during the cooking process. Let the meat go through natural caramelization. Use all these tricks when you cook this stir-fry with shrimps, eggs and peas.
