👩🏻‍🍳Stir fry is a popular Asian dish that contains vegetables and proteins stir-fried together in a wok or pan. As a chef with a busy family, I love whipping up a good stir fry to use up leftover vegetables, noodles, or proteins I have on hand, but sometimes I end up with too much!

Can you reheat stir fry? Yes, if you have leftover stir fry from a home-cooked meal or from a restaurant, you can easily reheat it for a delicious meal. The first step to reheating a stir fry is to make sure it is stored properly in the first place.

Whats the best way to reheat stir fry? While I’ve used all reheating methods below, the best way to reheat stir fry is by using the skillet. This allows most of the steam and moisture to escape and allows a good sear on the meat and vegetables bringing it back to as close as the day it was made. Second choice is reheating stir fry in the air fryer or Ninja Foodi!

🍳How To Store Stir Fry

1️⃣Let it cool completely: Before storing your stir fry, let it cool completely. If you put hot or warm food in the refrigerator, it will raise the temperature of the other foods and increase your risk for food-borne illnesses.

2️⃣Store properly: Place your cooled stir fry into a shallow container with an airtight lid. This will help keep out moisture to prevent sogginess.

3️⃣Label and date: Make sure to label the container with the contents and include the date it was cooked. This will help you keep track of how long it has been stored in the refrigerator. Most stir fry lasts in the fridge for up to 4 days.

📖How To Reheat Stir Fry

In a skillet:

This is the best way to reheat leftover stir fry because it helps to preserve the crispiness of the vegetables.

  1. Heat a skillet over medium-high heat.
  2. Add one tablespoon of oil.
  3. Then, add your leftover stir fry and saute for about five minutes or until heated through.

In the microwave:

Reheating stir fry in the microwave is quick, easy, and convenient.

  1. Transfer your stir fry to a microwave-safe dish and cover it with a lid or paper towel.
  2. Heat for one minute, remove from the microwave and stir.
  3. If it needs more time, cover again and heat for an additional 30 seconds until heated through.

In the oven:

This method works best if you have a large quantity of stir fry to reheat.

  1. Preheat your oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Transfer the stir fry in an oven-safe pan and cover it with aluminum foil.
  3. Heat for 15 minutes or until heated through.

In the air fryer:

This is another great way to reheat your stir fry and keep it crispy.

  1. Set your air fryer to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Place the stir fry on top of a sheet of aluminum foil with the sides curled up to make a makeshift bowl.
  3. Air fry for five minutes, stirring halfway through.

No matter how you decide to reheat your stir fry, make sure it’s cooked all the way through before consuming and enjoy!
