Stir Fry Ingredients

  • 1 cup thinly sliced meat of your choice – beef, pork, chicken, or whole peeled shrimp
  • 2 tablespoons shortening or cooking oil
  • 1 small head of cabbage
  • 1 carrot
  • 1 red bell pepper
  • Other Vegetables that suit your taste


Prepare your selected meats by slicing thinly (leave your shrimp whole but peeled). Shred , cut small or slice thin the vegetables and set aside.

Select the appropriate flat bottom skillet, Wok, or use a flat-top cooking surface and bring to a high heat. Add the shortening or cooking oil and when it starts to slight smoke add your proteins of choice and brown. Careful if using shrimp not to over cook them or they will become tough. Add the sweet onion and soften for about 2 minutes. Add 1 teaspoon of the W’ham Seasoning – Original Mild and 1/2 Cup of the W’ham Sauce – Marinade simmer for an additional 5 minutes.

Clear the center of your cooking surface by moving ingredients to the outer edge or section where the temperature is cooler.

Add the rest of the vegetables and heat for approximately 5 minutes. Stir in 1/2 cup coca-cola and the remaining 1/2 cup W’ham Sauce – Marinade. Stir together with browned meat and onions to the center heat and move back out to out ring or cooler part of cooking surface. When all is uniformly heated, allow to simmer for 3 minutes. Spring another 1 tsp of W’ham Seasoning – Original Mild and optionally add a pinch of W’ham Seasoning – Hot Stuff for some added spiciness and stir together.

Serve over a bed of rice.
