Prep the vegetables
- Cut the broccoli into 1-inch florets; trim any coarse stems.
- Peel and coarsely chop the onion.
- Remove the stem, ribs, and seeds from the bell pepper; cut the pepper into ¼-inch-wide strips.
- Grate or peel and finely chop enough ginger to measure 1 teaspoon [2 tsp].
- Cut away the core from the tomato; cut the tomato lengthwise into quarters.
Prep your protein
Steak, chicken, or pork strips: Cut a small corner from the packaging and drain off any excess liquid. Transfer the meat to a plate; pat dry with a paper towel. Season with salt and pepper.
Chicken breasts or pork loin chops: Pat the meat dry with a paper towel; cut into 1-inch strips. Season with salt and pepper.
Shrimp or scallops: Rinse and drain the shrimp or scallops. Pat dry on a paper-towel-lined plate. Season lightly with salt and pepper.
Tofu: Pat the tofu dry with paper towels; cut into ½-inch cubes. Season with salt and pepper.
Plant-based chicken: Pat the plant-based chicken dry with a paper towel. Season with salt and pepper.
Start cooking your protein
In a wok or large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 teaspoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add your protein and cook, stirring occasionally, until lightly browned but not yet cooked through, 1 to 3 minutes for shrimp; 2 to 4 minutes for scallops, steak, pork, tofu, or plant-based chicken; and 3 to 5 minutes for chicken. Transfer to a plate. Do not clean the pan.
Cook the vegetables
In the same pan used for your protein, warm 2 to 3 teaspoons oil over high heat until hot but not smoking. Stir in the broccoli, season with salt and pepper, and cook until lightly browned and starting to soften, 1 to 2 minutes.
Reduce the heat to medium-high and add the onion, bell pepper, ginger, coriander-cumin spice blend, and as many chile flakes as you like. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the onion and bell pepper start to soften, 2 to 3 minutes.
Finish the stir-fry
To the pan with the vegetables, add your protein and any accumulated juices, tomato, and ¼ cup [⅓ cup] water. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the tomato starts to soften and the protein is cooked through, 1 to 3 minutes. Remove from the heat. Season to taste with salt and pepper and any remaining chile flakes, if desired.
Transfer the stir-fry to individual bowls and serve.
