Is the best way of cooking things, ever.

(to anyone not familiar with the term, its when you heat a pan over medium heat, oil, and cook while constantly stirring and tilting the pan)


My favorite is bell peppers, garlic, and red onion. cooked in sesame or coconut oil. sooo good in an omlette!

What do yall like to stir fry?

    I disagree. Deep frying is the best. I deep fried some coca cola the other day and it tasted good as fuck

    A wok is a deep, round bottomed cooking vessel essential for any quality stir-fry. Functionally, it provides a lot of room for the stir-frying to occur and allows for tossing without mess. The round bottom creates a concentrated hot area. Used over an open flame (as opposed to an electric stove) will allow the wok to impart a quality called wok hei to the food which gives it a very robust flavour.

    The chink was the only one who posted any decent information in this thread. Everything else was fucking retarded. Usually you want to use high heat or medium high heat, not medium heat. You cook everything fast with the concentrated heat on the flat or rounded bottom area of the wok (ya, mayberry, not all woks are round-bottomed). You need to have all your shit ready to go, and you do it in a specific order. Very briefly this is what you do:

    1. heat the wok to high heat.
    2. add oil.
    3. add garlic and/or ginger.
    4. cook meat. then remove it.
    5. add densest vegetables cause they take longer to cook.
    6. add less dense vegetables.
    7. re add meat.
    8. add sauce
    9. remove from heat and plate.

    Selecting a wok: http://consults.blogs.nytimes.com/2010/09/24/getting-the-most-from-your-wok/

    Obviously this shit can get complicated. The thickness of the wok, the metal used, the types of vegetables and whether or not they're still wet from being rinsed, the size of the pieces of meat, the type of sauce, and the smoke point of the oil used all play a factor in what you're going to do.

    Get a cookbook or google this shit if you want to do it right. Otherwise you'll fuck everything up.

    Each person has their own way of doing it, who are you to say that there is a set way?

    You can deep fry coca cola. You can deep fry anything. Just put oil, heat that motherfucker up and put some coke in it. Chill coke and drink like a boss. Deep fried Snickers are tasty, too.

    The typical curved-bottom wok is not really suited for common household stove. The common household stove has a much smaller flame, so it needs flat-bottomed wok for more even heat distribution.I find flat-bottomed wok as not as easy to use, as it's harder to toss stuff in it.

    Deep fried Ice cubes are great too. Just fill a sautee pan up with oil and heat on high until smoking and toss in a handful of ice cubes. Enjoy!
