- Why Choose Sharp?
Derived from an Asian cooking technique, stir-fry is growing in popularity for its quick and easy preparation, as well as its health benefits. Foods that are stir-fried require less oil than unhealthy, deep-fried foods, and they also retain their nutrients though the use of high-temperature cooking for a very short time.
Sauté onion in oil until tender. Add cabbage, grapes, mushrooms, basil, salt and pepper and stir-fry until cabbage is crisp-tender. Combine water and cornstarch; mix well and add to grape mixture. Stir-fry for about 1 minute or until sauce thickens.
