Simple Sesame Stir Fry

I took all the stir-fry vegetables in my house, chopped them, and threw them in the wok. It was tasty, though the flavors were simple and straightforward.

6 asparagus stalks (with the toughest part of the root end snapped off)

2/3 head cabbage

1 onion

20 green beans

1 tsp grapeseed oil (or other cooking oil)

1/2 tsp corn starch

2 Tbsp sesame oil

2 Tbsp seasoned rice vinegar

1 1/2 Tbsp oyster sauce

1/4 tsp cayenne

Salt to taste


  • Chop all ingredients into small, bite-sized pieces.
  • Heat cooking oil in wok on high.
  • Toss all vegetables in the wok and keep ingredients moving while they cook.
  • When everything is almost done, add in everything but the cornstarch.
  • Cook through until everything is well glazed and ingredients are fully cooked through.
  • Put corn starch in small bowl with a couple tablespoons of cold water. Mix until dissolved.
  • Add cornstarch to the wok until sauce thickens a bit, then remove from heat.
  • Serve over rice or other starch.

      Super duper easy. I was amused by how much my sweetie and roomie loved it, for the little amount of effort I had put into it.
