Cook the rice noodles
Bring a large sauce pot of water to a boil. Add the rice noodles and cook until just tender, 6 to 8 minutes. Drain and rinse with cold water, then return to the pot and set aside. Meanwhile, prepare your protein.
Prep your protein
- Shrimp or scallops: Rinse and drain the shrimp or scallops. Pat dry on a paper-towel-lined plate. Season lightly with salt and pepper.
- Chicken, steak, 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 paper towel; cut into 1-inch strips. Season 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.
Cook your protein
In a wok or large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 2 to 4 teaspoons oil until hot but not smoking. Stir in your protein and cook until starting to brown, about 30 seconds. Add the tamari and cook, stirring occasionally, until your protein is browned and cooked through, 2 to 4 minutes for regular shrimp; 4 to 6 minutes for jumbo shrimp, scallops, steak, pork, tofu, or plant-based chicken; and 6 to 8 minutes for chicken. Transfer to a plate. Wipe out the pan. While your protein is cooking, prepare the vegetables.
Prep the vegetables; start the egg
- Cut the zucchini in half lengthwise, then crosswise into ¼-inch-thick half-moons.
- Trim the root ends from the scallions; cut the scallions on the diagonal into 2-inch lengths.
- Crack the egg into a small bowl and season with salt and pepper. Lightly beat with a fork until just blended.
In the same pan used for your protein, warm 1 to 2 teaspoons oil over medium heat until hot but not smoking. Add the egg and cook, stirring gently, until just starting to set but still slightly runny, 1 to 2 minutes. Transfer to a plate. Wipe out the pan.
Cook the vegetables; finish the stir-fry
In the same pan used for the egg, warm 1 to 2 teaspoons oil over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Stir in the zucchini, season with salt and pepper, and cook until starting to brown and soften, 1 to 2 minutes. Stir in the carrots and scallions, season with salt and pepper, and cook until the vegetables are crisp-tender, 1 to 2 minutes.
Stir in the noodles, egg, “oyster sauce” blend, and as much sambal oelek as you like and cook until the noodles are heated through and the egg is just set, 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from the heat, stir in your protein, and season to taste with salt and pepper.
Transfer the stir-fry to individual bowls and serve.
- Fill a pot with water for the noodles.
- Time the noodles.
- Measure the oil for cooking.
- Set the table.
