Every time I’m busy and I’ve got a fridge full of fresh vegetables, I choose stir-fry for lunch or dinner. It’s the easiest and most flavorful dish you can prepare with any combination of ingredients in practically no time. I also love spicy food, and a few months back I bought the large extra hot Sriracha sauce, my family’s not a fan but I use it a lot when cooking. So using Sriracha in my stir-fry was a no-brainer. Check the rest of the recipe out below, it’s spicy, flavorful and delicious!
