Stir Fry On the Griddle

A couple of places that we like to go out to eat are the Japanese Steak House and Flat Top Grill. Both places have these giant stainless steel grills that they fry up your food on while you watch. It's always steaming hot and delicious! The other night we were wanting some but not wanting to spend the money to go out, so we tried duplicating it at home with much success!

Here are the ingredients:

You could throw in just about any fresh veggies to suit your fancy. We used broccoli, carrots, water chestnuts, mushrooms, sugar peas & onions. For meat we used both chicken and beef cut into bit size pieces.

Garlic & butter, mmm.

If you like a bit of spice you'll want some of this!

Some good sauce, you could use any stir fry sauce really, but we like teriyaki!

Noodles. The restaurants usually offer rice or egg noodles, we prefer the egg ones.

An electric griddle. I use this one all the time. It's great for grilled sandwiches, pancakes, french toast, get the idea.

First step is to boil up the noodles. You're going to cook these more later so only boil them for half the recommended cooking time. (For example the package for these said to cook them 20 minutes. I boiled them for 10) Drain them and rinse them with cool water to stop the cooking process.

Time to get things going now, heat up the grill (If your grill has a temperature gauge I set mine to 350) and toss on a chunk of butter to melt.

Pick up a bowl and add in all the things you want. This is the fun part because you can give a bowl to each person so they can pick exactly what they want. That way Ian can have his nice and spicy and I can have mine with extra teryiaki and the kids don't have to have onions if they don't like 'em and don't forget the garlic (we used about a tsp. of minced per bowl.)

Your grill should be nice and hot now, so pick a bowl and dump it all on there. Stirring it up pretty often.

I think any good stir fry needs some scrambled egg in it, so push all the stuff to the side and crack an egg on there. Once it's good and cooked up, stir it in with all the rest. Continue to cook it all up until the meat is no longer pink, then scoop it steaming hot onto a plate.

Doesn't that look yummy?

It's also fun to have a cutie pie like this watching. :o)

I love the idea of each person being able to put whatever they want in their bowl...

Of course this will be on our new menu, as I really want to cook some new things instead of just the same old-same old!

The pictures were really helpful too!

Do you know I've never seen an electric grill before - also what do chestnuts taste like - are they yummy?
I think I could duplicate in a frypan - thanks for a yummy idea!

Hey terrific website! Does running a blog like this require a lot of work?
I have virtually no expertise in coding but I had
been hoping to start my own blog in the near future.

Anyway, if you have any suggestions or techniques for new
blog owners please share. I know this is off subject but I just wanted to ask.
