Balancing textures is important. You don't want everything cooked, especially overcooked and mushy. It only takes 5-10 minutes for stir fry. Start with some oil in the wok. Get it hot, until you see it smoke. I use a combo of sesame and canola. Add chopped veg and move around, about five minutes. Then add raw meat: shrimp, chicken, beef, pork. All bite size. All seasoned with salt and pepper before adding. Another five minutes. Lastly add cooked rice/soba noodles. Stir around a minute or two, then add your sauce.

I was hoping to use this as is, but it's TOO hot for me. So a spoonful in the peanut sauce is divine.
Whisk all these ingredients, and add warm water to desired thickness. This is all mixed before you dump into the wok, and stir through all ingredients.
