These easy stir fry recipes will make dinnertime a breeze. Choose your favorite combination, grab the skillet and get cooking!

I love a meal that comes together easily with big flavors and great textures. And stir fry meals? They totally deliver on this. And, perhaps most exciting of all, stir fry recipes can take you in so many different, delicious directions while still being a great quick and easy dinner.

To get started, you will need a skillet. This flat-bottomed, shallow pan with a long handle is perfect for the cooking that makes these dishes just right. While small skillets are great for omelets and eggs, you’ll need a bigger one for a full meal. A 10- or 12-inch skillet should do the trick.

And then you’ll want to gather the ingredients for your stir fry. Dishes like this cook quickly, so having everything organized and chopped will ensure the cooking process goes smoothly. This is called mise en place, and it’s generally good advice for anytime you are cooking.

Finally, make sure you make the base for your meal. For instance, if I am serving my stir fry over rice, I will start the rice in my rice cooker before I begin cooking the stir fry.

Alright, ready to find the perfect recipe for your dinner adventure? There are so many good ones to choose from. And once you’ve enjoyed your stir fry, consider trying a sheet pan dinner for another quick, easy and flavorful option.
