I twittered briefly about a fast, easy dinner I was making. Suddenly a whole bunch of people wanted to know how to make it too. Here's how.
1. Make some spaghetti, enough for 1 person for a reasonable meal. Doesn't matter what kind, just make sure it's washed and cool/cold. Leftover plain spaghetti works best.
2. In a large frying pan, as large as you can have, put 1 diced onion, 5 diced stalks of celery, 4 tbsp oil, and salt to taste. Crank up the heat as high as it will go. Do NOT cover.
3. When the vegetables show signs of browning/burning a bit, pull the pan off and put the veggies in a very large bowl.
4. Put 2 tbsp butter and 1 tbsp minced garlic in a pan. Melt the butter on low heat, then crank it to get the garlic to brown.
5. Throw the pasta in. Be careful of oil splatters.
6. Toss 2 tbsp soy sauce on the pasta after you throw it in. Toss quickly, then let sit on high, high heat for 3-5 minutes or until pasta browns.
7. Take pasta off heat and throw in the bowl.
8. Scramble an egg in the pan with the residual oil.
9. Throw the egg in the bowl.
10. Stir for a minute or two, and you have a stir fry!
The secret to a good stir fry is a large pan with surface area to spare and high, high heat. Don't be shy - fire up the afterburner.
