CAN I USE COCONUT OIL IN A STIR FRY?
Yes, but keep in mind that unrefined coconut oil smokes at high temperatures. Vegetable oil and refined coconut oil have a higher smoke point. It is still okay to cook with unrefined coconut oil, just expect some smoke with recipes like this one where the food is cooked on a higher heat.
CAN I USE A DIFFERENT CUT OF MEAT?
Yes. A flank steak or skirt steak also works well with this recipe. Be sure to cut your meat against the grain as doing so will ensure that the meat is more tender.
