After being away from North America for so long, I’ve found that I’ve missed out on a few recent developments in grocery shopping. One of these such developments is broccoli slaw – wonderful ready to use pre-cut broccoli slaw packages. They are perfect for making a quick meal or side dish.
I picked up a few bags the other day at the grocery store with no idea of what I would make, but I ended up whipping together a quick and easy broccoli slaw stir fry with a garlic-ginger teriyaki sauce. The best part? Barely any vegetable chopping… and the water chestnuts.
Serve with white rice or your favorite Asian-style noodle for a full meal.
*Update: Just a quick note on the stir-fry sauce. I used a store-bought stir fry sauce for this recipe. From what I’ve noticed in the past, there are two different kinds of stir fry sauce at typical grocery stores – sauce and sauce/marinade. I believe the marinade type sauces are a little too runny for this recipe, but I can’t say I’ve tried every type so use your best judgment (and if you need a thickener try a little bit of cornstarch whisked with a little liquid to prevent lumps).
