1. Easy Thai Beef & Broccoli Stir-Fry

This Thai Beef & Broccoli Stir-Fry is even more delicious than the Chinese version, with more depth of flavor and slightly more spice (this can be adjusted according to your liking). The beef is cut thinly and stir-fried quickly and easily together with broccoli, red pepper, and a delicious stir-fry sauce. The broccoli really works in this dish, as it fully absorbs the sauce and provides that nice added bit of crunch. Serve with plain steamed jasmine rice for an easy Asian comfort food dish your family will love. ENJOY!

2. Very Thai Lime Chicken Stir-Fry

This dish is very Thai, and is my favorite stir-fry recipe. Like most Thai stir-fries, it cooks up really quickly once you have all the ingredients ready. This recipe features the flavor of lime - both lime juice and lime leaf. Lime leaves are an essential part of this stir-fry, so don't skimp on them. You can buy kaffir lime leaves at most Asian/Chinese food stores - look for them in frozen packets. This chicken stir fry also includes vegetables, so you get everything you need in one dish. Just serve with plain rice or coconut rice, and ENJOY this delicious and aromatic dish!

3. Cashew Chicken Stir-Fry

This bok choy stir fry is terrific to serve as a side vegetable dish - or add tofu or your choice of chicken, pork, or seafood for a delicious mixed stir fry dish. With a rich garlic taste, the stir fry sauce recipe is easy to make and goes well with other vegetable dishes, such as stir fry broccoli or Chinese vegetables such as baby bok choy, yu choy, Chinese broccoli (gailan) or any Chinese cabbage. This recipe makes more sauce than you'll need, so you can keep extra in your refrigerator for a fast and easy stir fry anytime. Enjoy!

8. Easy Stir-Fried Vegetables (Vegan-friendly recipe!)

Making a "simple stir fry" isn't all that simple. Getting the stir fry sauce to taste just right is usually a challenge. But my Thai stir-fried vegetables is a no-fail recipe, mostly because the stir-fry sauce is made before beginning to fry the vegetables, allowing you to adjust the flavor according to your taste. Try it as a side dish, or make it the main course. Nuts, tofu, wheat gluten, or slices of chicken (if you are non-vegetarian) can be added as a protein source - you'll love it!

9. Thai Chicken Stir-Fry (with Mushrooms, Snow Peas, and Fresh Basil)

This Thai chicken stir-fry is quick to make and tastes better than take-out! It's also extremely healthy, and the recipe is very versatile, so you can easily alter it according to how many people you're cooking for, or the ingredients you have on hand (feel free to add your own choice of vegetables - broccoli, carrots, green beans, and bok choy also work well!). The dish turns out 'saucy' rather than dry, with the spicy-salty-sweet flavors of Thai cuisine coming through beautifully.

10. Thai Ginger Chicken Stir-Fry

This simple yet exquisite stir-fry can be whipped up quickly which makes it great for weeknights, and you can substitute your own choice of vegetables depending on what you have on hand. This is one of the mildest of Thai stir-fries, relying on ginger rather than chilies to add most of the flavor, which means it's great for kids and those with sensitive stomachs. In I just love it and know you will too!
