Stir-fry Cook­ing Takes Fla­vor To The Next Level

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS -

(NAPSA)-Here’s de­li­cious news: You can en­joy great meals that are high in fla­vor yet low in calo­ries when you turn to the stir­ring tastes of stir-fry cook­ing. This kind of cui­sine orig­i­nated in China many years ago with the wok and has be­come a ma­jor part of many Amer­i­can life­styles. The trend is grow­ing as more and more peo­ple re­al­ize that this type of cook­ing can be a healthy part of the fam­ily diet-whether you use a skil­let, wok or pan. The key is in the prepa­ra­tion. As with any method of cook­ing, it is still pos­si­ble to make a dish that is high in fat and calo­ries with stir-fry cook­ing if you’re not care­ful. By work­ing with a small amount of cook­ing oil and stick­ing to lean meats and lots of veg­eta­bles, how­ever, you can do stir-fry cook­ing that’s a quick and easy way to pre­pare healthy and fla­vor­ful meals. “Asian-in­spired cui­sine is one of the ma­jor food trends to­day be­cause of the fresh in­gre­di­ents and ex­cit­ing fla­vor com­bi­na­tions avail­able,” ex­plained one ex­pert on food, Ja­son Abelkop of Buf­fets, Inc. Pop­u­lar restau­rants that are owned by Buf­fets, such as Ryan’s( ) as well as Home­Town(®) Buf­fet and Old Coun­try Buf­fet( ), are help­ing to lead the trend with made-to-or­der Mon­go­lian Stir Fry, now avail­able for lunch and din­ner at most lo­ca­tions. Guests choose from chicken, beef or shrimp to cre­ate the com­bi­na­tion that’s just right for them.
