Asian Cooking - Time Saving Tips

Read on for some time-saving tips, pantry staples and expert advice on fabulous time saving tips for Asian cooking.

- Stir-frying is one of the fastest cooking methods. It is also one of the most popular ways of preparing Asian food. The most important thing when stir-frying is to have everything ready before you start cooking. Have all your vegetables chopped into even-sized pieces and any sauces, pastes or liquids measured out.

- Most Asian dishes are served with rice or noodles. Rice usually takes about 15 minutes to cook, so before you start cutting up your vegetables, put the rice on; if it is ready before your meal is, cover and keep warm. Pre-cooked frozen rice is available and can be defrosted in the microwave. Noodle cooking times vary, so time your noodles so that they are cooked when the rest of the meal is ready.

- Buying pre-cut meat will save you time, but be selective as pre-cut meat can be fatty.

- Your wok must be hot before the oil and food are added. This ensures that the cooking time is short and the ingredients, especially meat, will be seared instantly, sealing in the flavor.
