Griddling the Vegetable Stir-Fry:
Preheat your griddle to medium-high heat, around 350-375°F (175-190°C).
Add 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil to the hot griddle.
Begin by sautéing the thinly sliced onion and minced garlic. Cook for 1-2 minutes until fragrant.
Add the bell peppers, broccoli florets, snap peas, carrots, mushrooms, and any other vegetables you're using. Stir-fry the vegetables for about 5-7 minutes or until they start to become tender but still have a bit of crispness.
Season the vegetables with salt, black pepper, and optional crushed red pepper flakes for added heat. Adjust the seasoning to your taste.
Pour the prepared stir-fry sauce over the vegetables. Stir everything together to ensure the sauce coats all the ingredients evenly.
If you're adding baby corn and bean sprouts, include them at this stage and cook for an additional 2-3 minutes.
Cook until the sauce thickens and the vegetables are cooked to your desired level of tenderness.
Serve your vegetable stir-fry hot over cooked rice or noodles.
Garnish with chopped green onions and sesame seeds for added flavor and a touch of visual appeal.
