Do you want something spicy? What about something sweet-n-savory? Packed with meat or vegetarian-friendly?

It doesn’t matter! This list really does have it all. 

So get ready to fire up your wok or frying pan and start cooking! Because these stir-fry recipes are out of this world delicious!

1. Beef and Broccoli

Beef and broccoli is an easy favorite of most American lovers of Asian food.

It’s simple, tasty, and not too exotic. After all, who doesn’t love meat and veggies?

This 30-minute favorite tastes even better than at your favorite Chinese joint. So give it a try the next time you’re craving takeout. 

2. Chicken Stir-Fry

You’ll love the sweet-n-savory stir-fry sauce on this dish.

It’s absolutely scrumptious and perfectly complements the tender chicken and crunchy veggies. 

You can have the whole thing ready in less than 30 minutes. Plus, it has plenty of lean protein and healthy veggies. What’s not to love?

3. Pork Ramen Stir-Fry

I’m not a huge fan of plain packaged ramen. College burned me out on that years ago.

However, homemade ramen stir-fry dishes are another matter entirely. 

Pork ramen stir-fry is the perfect example of why that is. It’s garlicky and earthy, and the coleslaw gives it plenty of crunch.

It takes half an hour to make and is an incredibly filling dish.

4. Teriyaki Chicken Stir-Fry

Teriyaki chicken and stir-fry are two things that go hand in hand.

Technically, you can have one without the other, but why would you want to?

It’s a healthy, delicious meal that takes practically no time to make.

And with a few adjustments, you can make this recipe vegetarian or gluten-free.

5. Pineapple Chicken

I love this recipe! However, I make one tiny adjustment. I add a dash of cayenne pepper into the mix. 

Did you ever have SweetFire chicken from Panda Express? With a dash of cayenne, that’s exactly what this tastes like.

You’ll be completely hooked after a single bite. 

Even without the cayenne, this sweet-n-savory dish is incredible.

But trust me, if you enjoy sweet and spicy meals, add the cayenne. It makes this dish phenomenal. 

6. Cashew Tofu Stir-Fry

I get it; you’re a busy person. You don’t have time to cook an elaborate meal every night of the week.

Of course, that doesn’t mean you have to give up on your vegan lifestyle.

Fortunately, it also doesn’t mean you have to go out to eat or order takeout every night.

This broccoli cashew tofu stir-fry is exceptionally quick and easy to make.

It’s also healthy and delicious.

Plus, it’s affordable too, so you can save your hard-earned money for more important things. It’s the total package.

7. Maple Ginger Cashew Chicken Stir-Fry (30 Minutes)

This delicious, sweet-n-spicy 30-minute dish is perfect for meal preppers. It takes practically no time or effort and is freezer-friendly. 

It features a sticky, spectacular sauce and succulent pieces of chicken.

If you’re looking for a quick and easy weeknight dinner, this one’s hard to beat. 

8. Quick & Easy Sweet and Sour Pork Stir-Fry

We all know that home-cooked meals are cheaper than takeout. But with this simple recipe, home-cooked is quicker than takeout, too! 

And it tastes better, so takeout really doesn’t have anything on this one.

You’ll stir-fry juicy pork cubes with bell peppers, tomatoes, & onions. Cover them in a sweet and tangy homemade sauce, and you’re all set. 

Enjoy it as it is or on a bed of rice. Either way, you won’t be disappointed in the result. 

9. Chicken Chow Mein with the Best Chow Mein Sauce

I prefer lo mein to chow mein, but I seem to be in the minority. To everyone else, chow mein is the stuff.

So, here’s an excellent recipe for all you chow mein lovers out there. 

The noodles are slippery and chewy, and the sauce is divine. Everything else is just added yumminess. 

10. Mongolian Chicken

Mongolian chicken has quickly become a favorite among foodies everywhere. The combination of flavors is sweet and savory.

And it creates a unique, tasty dish that is definitely worth trying. 

So, are you looking for a new recipe to add to your rotation? If so, give Mongolian chicken a try. 

11. Easy Hunan Shrimp

Hunan shrimp is another excellent shrimp-based option.

It’s a spicy, scrumptious dish that’ll set your mouth on fire. (You’ll still love it, though!)

Like the shrimp dish above, it takes just 20 minutes to make. Plus, you can easily swap out the shrimp for another meat of your choice.

It makes an excellent vegetarian dish, as well.

12. Szechuan Shrimp Stir-Fry

When we imagine stir-fry, we often think about chicken or beef. However, shrimp tastes great in stir-fry dishes, too.

It’s especially great when you add snap peas, green onions, and Szechuan sauce.

This 20-minute meal is perfect for seafood lovers. And everyone else will probably enjoy it, too. 

13. Kung Pao Chicken

Kung Pao chicken is another Chinese restaurant favorite for most people. It’s gluten- and dairy-free, low carb, and so spicy and good. 

It’s a great meal or family dinner because everyone enjoys it. You can also make it in one pot in 30 minutes or less.

It features the same great taste of takeout but for half the price.

14. Spicy Beef & Pepper Stir-Fry

This beef and pepper stir-fry is as fragrant as it is flavorful. People will smell it cooking from as far away as next door!

Even better, it’s delicious. Every bite is better than the last, making it almost addictive.

It’s a quick meal that you can make in one pot in 25 minutes, and it’ll feed the whole family.

If you want something filling and a bit spicy, give it a try.

15. Teriyaki Shrimp Stir Fry

Do you love Asian seafood? If so, this teriyaki shrimp stir fry is something you need to try! It’s easy to make and mouth-wateringly delectable. 

Plus, it’s a healthy dish that doesn’t contain many calories or fat. So if you’re looking for a quick and tasty meal, this is the perfect recipe. 

16. Korean Beef Bowl

Imagine a delicious, healthy, and affordable meal that you can easily make in your own home.

Yep, that’s the Korean beef bowl. This dish is perfect for anyone who loves Asian cuisine.

And best of all, it’s simple to prepare! So if you’re looking for an easy way to impress your friends or family, check out this recipe.

17. Thai Basil Chicken

Though it’s not as popular as pad Thai, Thai basil chicken is a much-loved dish in Thailand. This recipe is one of my favorites, too.

It’s effortless to make and features delicious, fragrant ingredients. If you love Thai food, you’ll want to try it.

It’s a little sticky and messy, but man is it tasty.

18. Pad Thai

Speaking of pad Thai, here’s a fantastic recipe for it! Pad Thai is a staple of Asian cuisine and one that nearly everyone loves. 

This 30-minute recipe has everything that makes pad Thai great.

There are saucy noodles, a mixture of chicken, shrimp, and tofu, and crisp veggies. 

Add in the scrambled eggs and crunchy peanuts, and you’re all set.

It’s hard to believe something so amazing takes just 30 minutes to make. Luckily, it’s true! 

19. Honey Orange Shrimp w/Stir-Fry Vegetables

If you love Asian food covered in orange sauce, this stir-fry is sure to delight. It’s a sticky, sweet-n-savory meal that’s 100% scrumptious.

It’s citrusy, garlicky, and full of veggies. Add some tender, succulent shrimp into the mix, and you have a real hit on your hands.

20. Honey Sesame Chicken Stir-Fry

Are you in the mood for something a little different? Then give honey sesame chicken stir-fry a try. It’s simple to make and packed with flavor. 

Plus, it’s a great way to use up any leftovers you might have. It combines chicken, bell peppers, garlic, ginger, green beans, and more. 

You’ll toss it all in a sweet sesame sauce. It’s sticky and messy, but you’ll be licking it off your fingers when you’re done. It’s that good. 

21. Hawaiian Pineapple Fried Rice

Are you feeling lazy and don’t want to spend tons of time in the kitchen? If so, Hawaiian pineapple fried rice is the solution. 

It’s perfect for a quick and simple weeknight meal and is always a big hit. It’s sweet, tangy, and wonderfully filling. 

Plus, it looks extraordinary when you serve it from a hollowed-out pineapple. It’s sure to turn a few heads.

22. Ground Turkey Stir-Fry

Try ground turkey stir-fry if you’re looking for something a bit lighter. You’ll still get all the rich, savory flavors of traditional stir-fry.

However, the ground turkey is leaner and less greasy than ground beef. Additionally, it’s lower in calories but still has a ton of protein. 

There are also two ounces of spinach in this recipe. So you know it’s full of vitamins, minerals, and things that are good for you. 

23. Beef Chow Fun

When it comes to Chinese food, beef chow fun isn’t one of the most popular options. Surprisingly, though, it’s one of my favorite dishes.

I love it because it’s so hearty and flavorful. The contrast between the soft noodles and savory beef and veggies is another plus. 

It’s a recipe that isn’t just “one thing.” It combines flavors, textures, and more to create something totally unique and enjoyable. 

24. Stir-Fry Noodles

Are you a fan of chicken lo mein? If so, you’ll love this recipe. That’s pretty much what it is. It may have a different name, but it’s chicken lo mein. 

Or, let me back up and say it this way. It tastes like every chicken lo mein takeout dish I’ve ever ordered.

I suppose restaurants could have been giving me stir-fry noodles all this time!

(Seriously, though, chicken lo mein lovers will go nuts for this dish.)

25. Beef Lo Mein

If you prefer beef to chicken, use this lo mein recipe instead. It has the same chewy noodles and rich sauce.

There are also plenty of garlic and veggies. 

The only difference is that this one features juicy slices of beef instead of chicken.

26. Broccoli Cashew Stir-Fry

This dish is 100% vegan-approved and very good for you. It’s also gluten-free and uses fewer than 10 ingredients.

Additionally, each serving has nearly a fourth of your daily recommended protein. That’s not bad for not having any meat in it! 

Give it a try if you’re looking for something fresh and nutritious.

27. Sizzlin’ Spicy Szechuan Stir-Fry

We all know that staying healthy requires making balanced choices in our diets. But that doesn’t mean we have to give up on wonderful flavors. 

Spicy Szechuan stir-fry is the perfect example of a delicious, nutritious meal.

It can help you maintain your health and satisfy your taste buds simultaneously. 

Packed with veggies, protein, and flavor, it’s the best of all worlds. It’s also quick and easy to make.

So whether you’re preparing lunch or dinner, it’s an excellent option.

28. General Tso’s Chicken

Everyone has their favorite takeout dish. For some, it’s pizza, and for others, it’s Chinese food.

And for Chinese food lovers, the go-to order is usually General Tso’s chicken. 

Why, you ask? 

Because it’s insanely yummy! Seriously. Even people who don’t like Chinese food enjoy General Tso’s chicken. It’s the burger of the Chinese takeout world. 

And with this recipe, you can make it yourself. It’s not even that difficult!

You can whip it up in 20 minutes or less with a few common ingredients. 

29. Vegetable Stir-Fry

Vegetable stir-fry is an incredible vegetarian-friendly dish. It’s perfect for those who want something simple and comforting.

There are mushrooms, water chestnuts, baby corn, and more. It’s a colorful, flavorful, aromatic dish that even your meat-loving friends will enjoy. 

30. Singapore Street Noodles

Some people might say that there’s no such thing as a vegetarian street noodle. Those people would be wrong. 

With this recipe, you can prove it to them. It takes 5 minutes of prep and another 30 to cook.

You can easily add meat if you want, of course. 

But honestly, it tastes just as good without it.
