Note, if you want to stir-fry delicious green vegetables, remember not to add cold or hot water when stir-frying. Because after washing, vegetables still have some water left on the surface, while the green vegetables themselves also contain water.

If you add water to stir-fry, stir-fried vegetables will be watery and taste bland. As long as the vegetables are fresh, you don’t need to add a single drop of water when sautéing, just add one thing: lard.

Stir-frying vegetables with lard will prevent the vegetables from releasing a lot of water, ensuring that the vegetables are crispy and soft. At the same time, lard also covers vegetables, making vegetables not exposed to air, not turning yellow or black when stir-fried.

In addition, vegetables must be sautéed quickly over high heat to keep the green color and not water. If you keep the heat to medium or low and prolong the frying time, the vegetables will easily change color to yellow, release a lot of water, and the vegetables after stir-frying will look less attractive and the taste will not be good.
