How to Cook Simple Yet Delicious Stir Fried Veggies

Operative word here is simple, since I get too flustered and nervous when I cook. After all, I have growling stomachs waiting for me and my dishes, I just get too pressured. Berto, on the other hand, loves to cook. He hails from a family of good cooks, plus he genuinely enjoys the whole process of planning the dish, buying and preparing the ingredients and finally slaving over the hot stove. A few years into the marriage, we have come to an unspoken agreement that he’d do the cooking while I do the eating…and the customary praising of his good culinary skills.

Earlier today though, out of the blue, I remembered that when Berto and I were first married I used to do all the cooking for him. Since he had no other choice but to consume my cooking or die of hunger, he often told me that my cooking was good. Yes, my Berto loves me so much that he would lie just to make his insecure wife happy! =)

So I decided to cook, for old time’s sake. I resolved to cook something healthy and simple…

Here is my recipe for Delicious Stir Fried Veggies!

By the way, here is my wonderful assistant helping me with my ingredients:


Ingredients:
Garlic and Onions
Togue (bean sprouts)
Carrots (strips)
Cabbage (strips)
Bell Pepper (strips)
*sometimes groceries sell sliced mixed veggies. Make sure to keep an eye out for spoiled parts. Clean carefully.
Pork Meat
Sesame Seeds
Sesame Oil
Salt, Sugar and Ground Pepper to taste

Instructions:
Clean vegetables thoroughly. Heat a non-stick pan and put in the sesame seeds. Shake the pan occasionally. Remove the seeds when they darken and become fragrant. Next, sauté the garlic and onion until onion becomes translucent. 


Put in the meat and stir until it changes color. Season with salt and pepper. Once meat is tender, the mix in the vegetables. 

Stir and add a generous amount of sesame seed oil. It makes the dish so fragrant! Season with sugar, pepper and salt according to your taste. 


Turn off the heat and serve in a bowl. Sprinkle the toasted sesame seeds on the vegetables. This is both for presentation and for taste. Voila! All that took less than 30 minutes!


It was delicious! No lie there, haha after all, one has to love her own!  I am encouraged to give cooking one more try. Maybe next weekend! 

Give this simple stir fry dish a try and let me know how it goes!
