You might think that a cookbook called 300 Best Stir-Fry Recipes would mostly be Asian style recipes.

Although Nancie McDermott certainly does give us mouth watering Asian recipes from all around that corner of the world, there is a real mix of recipes to enjoy in this cookbook.

Nancie’s Asian recipes come from a real understanding of that cuisine, having spent 3 years living in Thailand, followed by lots of travel throughout Asia.

She provides us with a lot of ways to use the wok (or a large skillet) for fantastic non-Asian recipes too. Some of the recipes you will enjoy in this cookbook include:

  • Thai-Style Sweet And Sour Chicken
  • Peppery Basil Chicken
  • Vietmamese-Style Lemongrass Chicken
  • Little Meatballs In Red Curry Peanut Sauce
  • Apple Cider Pork With Sweet Potatoes And Sesame Oil
  • Orange-Splashed Pork With Cumin, Tomatoes And Mint
  • Cajun-Spiced Shrimp
  • Shrimp In Sweet And Spicy Garlic Sauce
  • Mongolian-Style Lamb With Shredded Carrots
  • Curry-Spiced Lamb With Cauliflower
  • Miso-Soaked Cod With Edamame
  • Halibut Provencal
  • Moo Shu Vegetables
  • Wok-Seared Kale With Five-Spice Tofu
  • Singapore-Style Noodles With Vegetables In Curry Sauce
  • Stir-Fried Shiitakes With Garlic
  • Sweet And Tangy Cabbage
  • Asian Eggplant With Peppers And Peas
  • Spicy Fried Rice With Mexican Chorizo
  • Shrimp Lo Mein
  • Mandarin Pancakes
  • Chinese-Style Barbecued Pork

I think it is always good to read what other people think about a cookbook you are interested in. Here are what others have said in their cookbook reviews of Nancie’s Stir-fry Recipes:

J. D. O’Connor says that 300 Best Stir-fry Recipes is:
A World of Asian Flavors and Beyond…

“I am a big fan of Nancie Mcdermott’s recipes and her vivid writing. I love her book Southern Cakes and I’m an avid baker myself. I’m not as familiar with Asian cooking, so I was thrilled to learn she goes beyond traditional Asian flavors in her new book 300 Best Stir Fry Recipes to include delicious dishes like her Pork with Escarole, Cherry Tomatoes and Pine Nuts–a delicious, colorful and healthy weeknight meal. Being a true lemon lover, I adored the Stir Fried “Piccata” with Pork and Peas and my family sopped up the savory sauce with warm slices of sourdough bread. It was an easy one-pot wonder.”

“After a trip to New Orleans, I couldn’t wait to try the Cajun Spiced Shrimp, and was delighted by this quick and very flavorful dish. The recipes in this book are colorful and vibrant and I can’t wait to try more of them, especially this summer when I get tired of grilling but don’t want to heat up the oven. My 15 year old daughter is just starting to cook, and together we will turn to this book time and time again to search out easy and delicious meals she can whip up with ease. Thanks Nancie, for a great book that introduces us to the world of Asian flavors and beyond!”

By Barbara Corbett:

“I love this book. I purchased it during the summer because I wanted to try new recipes while I had time. I have prepared roughly 25 of the recipes and each one has been superb. The documentation and pictures are outstanding. Not having a lot of experience with Asian cooking I found the ingredients easy to locate in the local super market and the dishes easy to prepare. My husband was delighted with the new additions to my Greek cooking. I would recommend this book to anyone trying to eat a healthier diet. I am now online to purchase another copy of the book for our winter home.”

T. Baker says: “Easy and Yummy”

“So far every recipe I have tried has been a hit. The Moo Goo Gai Pan was incredibly authentic too. As most recipe collections published by Robert Rose, ingredient lists and prep time required are short and sweet with great results. There are recipes to please all palates.”

By G. Addae

“I love to cook and for someone like me, this book is definitely it. the recipes are great but above that, they give you ideas to be creative about you food. I love the little tips about substituting items when you don’t have a particular ingredient at hand! Only problem is I wish it had more pictures, but oh well, can’t have it all right?”

Denise Landis in The Exeter News-Letter:
The recipes are easy enough for beginners in the kitchen, but so flavorful they will be appreciated by the most experienced cooks.
