Tasty Chinese dishes at home

I love Chinese food, but we don’t have it often as it adds up for a growing family of 5. However I discovered the new Maggi Stir Fry Creations sauces earlier this year and we loved them.  I often use a stir through sauce in a stir fry for a quick weeknight meal, sometimes though they taste very bland.  But the difference with the Maggi Stir Fry Creations sauces is the 2 step flavour process, you marinate the meat in the infusion paste for a few minutes prior to cooking, which gives the meat a more intense flavour, stirfry whatever vegetables you have on hand then before serving add the finishing sauce for a final touch to complete the meal and for it to be a very flavoursome dish. I love that I can put in as many vegetables as I’d like, the sauce gives them a tasty coating and the kids enjoy them more. It’s a great mid week meal for the time poor cook!

You split the packet in half to then have 2 separate pouches for the paste and sauce

Maggi sent me a selection of their range, to share with you how easy the process is to create a tasty stir fry dish:

  • Sweet Chilli, Ginger and Lemongrass Chicken Stir fry
  • Chinese Five Spice & Soy Beef Stir fry
  • Honey, Soy & Garlic Stir fry
  • Garlic & Ginger Thai Chicken Stir fry
  • Teriyaki & Sesame Chicken Stir fry

Typically the process when cooking the Stir Fry Creations is to marinate the meat in the infusion paste for a few minutes, then brown the meat, add the vegetables cooking for 3 minutes, finally add the finishing sauce heating through for 2 minutes then serve.  We do it a little differently as we don’t like our vegetables so crisp.  This is our process:

Ingredients includes 3 cups of vegetables, 500g beef strips, 1 packet Singapore noodles and 1 Maggi Stir Fry Creations Chinese Five Spice & Soy Beef.

Place meat in bowl and add infusion paste

While meat is marinating stir fry vegetables, remove vegetables from pan just prior to your liking (eg, crisp or soft vegeies, you will be adding them back in pan soon)

Prepare noodles following packet directions

Brown and cook beef

Add vegetables and sauce to beef, stir to combine.  Add noodles, stir through.

Serve

 Including preparation of chopping up the vegetables this dish was cooked in under 30 minutes, gotta love that!

Maggi Stir Fry Creations Sauces can be found at Coles, Woolworths and other independent supermarkets for $3.29 RRP.

I would love to know if anyone has found any pre-made sauce/flavour mixes similar to the Maggi ones that are gluten and wheat free? My daughter and I are both Coeliac, and while I am usually happy to make sauces for myself from scratch, it would be great to have something like this in the pantry for quick meal nights
