Garden Wok Stir Fry

Garden freshness, cowboy wok style cooking. We’re changing things up and going right out to the garden for this veggie stir fry with sausage.

Wok And Roll

One important tip about wok cooking is you want to get it pretty hot. Now you can also do this in a large cast iron skillet.

You want to get it hot enough so that your oil just starts to smoke and then it’s time to add the meat first. I’m using avocado oil today because is has a high smoke point of nearly 500 degrees F. and it’s a great tasting oil. You can use any high temp oil you’d like as well.

If using a cast iron skillet, after each ingredient addition just remove them from the skillet and keep in a warm place until you’re ready to stir them all together.

Protein Time

For this dish I am using a good Bratwurst. But here’s the great thing- you can use any protein you would like. Ground beef, shrimp, chicken, or another great idea is Andouille, or chorizo sausage. You can’t go wrong adding meat!

Fresh Garden Veggies

First up, make sure you brown up the meat well and a little bit to that crispy point. That’s going to add great flavor.

Move them up the sides of your wok and then add the ‘taters and cook them about 3/4 of the way done. Once the taters are a little brown move them up along the sidewall of the wok out of the way and add the squash.

When they are done, move them up the wall then add the bell peppers and onion to the middle and cook until tender.

Brats and Beer

You know when you have brats you gotta have beer! So for the sauce that we’re going to let all this marinate in is mix of  honey mustard, Worcestershire sauce and any “light beer” of your choice. Remember, we’re keeping this healthy!

Its Time To Stir Fry

Once your bell peppers are good and tender you can mix in all of the remaining contestants back into the arena along with the sauce and get it all blended and warm. You’re going to cook this just long enough to where that sauce reduces down and creates a nice glaze on all those veggies and meat.

This is a great feast from Mother Nature- so get out in the garden, or even the produce aisle at the store and stock up for this one.
