Food Facts

Adding cornstarch or potato starch to the marinade before stir-frying is a common Chinese cooking technique. The starch binds together with the liquid ingredients in the marinade and seals them to the meat, poultry or seafood being marinated. This technique is particularly important in quick cooking stir-fry dishes as it helps add more flavor to the food.

Serving Suggestion

Serve with hot cooked rice.


Substitute 4 cups small broccoli florets for the green peppers.
