    I normally use ginger, garlic, chillies, smoked paprika, soy sauce in my stir fry's. Would use cajun seasoning, msg, onion powder sometimes as well but would mix and match most of those for each type dish.

    Don't expect anything from life, just be grateful to be alive.

    I'd use mostly the same for beef and chicken, prawn could lead to some other flavours I guess but I don't "do" seafood so I dunno.

    Garlic, ginger, chilli flakes, black pepper, small amount of five spice, tiny dash of sesame oil, mirin, soy sauce (possibly light and dark). I might use some rice vinegar for beef but wouldn't normally for chicken.

    Ground lemongrass can be a decent addition but its usually sold as dried stems which are absolutely not!

    Same as above, I tend to use the same with all my stir fries. I marinate whatever it is I am cooking in garlic, chilli, ginger and soy sauce as a base. I would usually add coriander and cumin powder to chicken or beef and I love cashew nuts over a finished noodle stir fry.
