Mix Veg Stir Fry

I had eaten a very delicious simple vegetable dish in a restaurant which I tried to recreate at home and the resulting dish is this, I call it 'Mix Veg Stir Fry'. Though it didn't turn out exactly like the restaurant dish, I'm very pleased with the end result and have cooked this many times to date, and this gets thumbs up everytime from my Hubby!  Sweet, crunchy and soft at the same time, this vegetable dish has claimed a permanent spot on the weekly menu for me & my family. When there are leftovers, which is quite rare, I incorporate them into an omelete dish which is equally delicious.

Mix Veg Stir Fry
Timun Jepun

1 Timun Jepun (a type of dense cucumber)
1 Carrot
200g Wood Ear Mushrooms
2  Leeks
about 100g diced Luncheon Meat / Spam
1 Tbs Oyster Sauce
1 Tbs chopped Garlic
Salt to taste

Note: Luncheon Meat can be substituted with any meat of your choice. I've cooked this with diced marinated chicken and they were good.
How to cook:
1) Slice Timun Jepun, Carrot, Wood Ear Mushrooms & Leeks into thin even strips.
2) Heat up a tablespooon of oil in a pan, saute garlic and luncheon meat till fragrant (if you're using raw marinated meat, cook till meat is fully cooked). Add in the timun jepun and carrot and stir fry a while before adding in  the wood ear mushrooms and leeks. Add oyster sauce and season with salt. Add a little water if it gets a little dry. Stir till cooked or until vegetables are soft to your liking. Done!
