If you are looking for a quick and easy dinner, you’ve found it! This easy BBQ vegetable stir fry is one of our family’s go-to meals. It’s packed with fresh vegetables and can be served alone or with rice.
The best part of this vegetable stir fry is that you can make it using your favorite vegetables. We usually use broccoli, carrots, snow peas, shitake mushrooms, and canned baby corn or water chestnuts (or both). It will taste great with just about any vegetables you have on hand!
Can I use frozen vegetables instead?
Even though we prefer fresh vegetables, you can use fresh or frozen vegetables for this BBQ vegetable stir fry recipe. If you’re on a budget, you can also purchase the fresh stir fry vegetable mix that they serve in most grocery stores’ produce sections.
What should I serve this BBQ vegetable stir fry with?
I usually purchase frozen fried rice that is ready in 5 minutes in the microwave, just to save time. You can also make your own, or serve with lo-mein noodles or white rice. The versatility of this dish allows you to create a different option each time.
Can I use a different type of oil?
If you don’t have to use sesame oil, I do find that it adds to the flavor. If you don’t have any on hand, you can also use vegetable oil or anything similar.
How many vegetables should I make?
How many people you are feeding, will determine how many vegetables you want to use. I typically try to buy 1-2 cups of fresh vegetables for each person that will be eating.
If I don’t like my vegetables crisp, what should I do?
How long you cook your vegetables will depend on how you like to eat them. We prefer ours to be on the crisp side so that we aren’t cooking out too many of the nutrients. But if you prefer them to be softer, you can continue to saute them a bit longer until they are to your liking.
Do I need to add the toppings or the peanuts?
No, you don’t need to add any of the toppings or the peanuts to this BBQ vegetable stir fry. If anyone you are feeding has a peanut allergy, obviously, skip those. We add the toppings to give the dish a little extra crunch. Our favorite is the fried noodles.
Where can I buy those fried noodles?
I used to buy them in my local grocery store, but for some reason, over the last year, they don’t carry them anymore. Maybe there is a shortage? I did find them on Amazon, but they are pretty pricey. When I told my super-smart, out-of-the-box thinking husband about my dilemma, after visiting three different stores in our area, he asked why I didn’t just go to the Chinese restaurant. Duh! Our local Chinese restaurant sells small bags of them for $.50. Or you can do what we did and just order some soup since they give you a few bags with that order. By the way, the soup makes a great addition to this meal!
