New wok from Outdoor Home

edited 7:18PM in EggHead Forum
Just received my new large wok from Outdoor Home. Anybody have some good stir-fry receipes they would like to share. Also looking for a few tips on how to use this thing. It's not cast iron but should I keep a light coating of oil on it? Thanks in advance!

    I treat mine like cast iron. I seasoned it first....covered in lard and baked in the egg for an hour or so at 400. Then shut the egg down and let everything cool. From then on you have a seasoned wok, as long as you don't scrub it with soap. The more you cook on it, the more seasoned it will get pork fat is always good if you can cook some bacon or sausage in it early on. Clean what you can easily scrape with a wooden spoon then warm water and a soft scoring pad, and coat with oil before storing. [p]I still have not egged with mine, as it is the inside wok! I am ready to get another for egg use. They are indispensable tools.[p]Cheers!

    I've had my wok for OUtdoor Home for a couple - three months now and enjoy it no end.Here's one of the first things I did with Mr. Egg and Ms. Wok. The one thing I did learn early on was that you have everything ready before you start! Wok cooking moves very fast and takes a little planning...not a biggie but important.
    Do you have Word 2000? I can e-mail you some stuff that I found helpful.
    I did some squid that was out of this world recently! Good luck and we have another way to enjoy the Egg that others don't! ;>)[p]Carey[p]Also have some info on seasoningand the care and feeding of your wok too.[p][p]Asparagus Chicken

    1) Cut chicken into small pieces. Mix with one tablespoon of cooking wine and let it sit for ten minutes before adding two tablespoons of cornstarch. Mix well. [p]2) Cut green onion and asparagus into short segments[p]3) Heat up wok and add one cup of vegetable oil. Add chicken and cook at low temperature until chicken changes color. Remove chicken from the wok.[p]4) Add asparagus to the wok and stir-fry quickly at medium heat. Remove asparagus.[p]5) Remove all but two tablespoons of oil from the wok. Add minced ginger.

    Thomas, check your email in a minute. I'm sending you a killer recipe for Mongolian Beef in your new wok. BTW Dr Chicken has just entered the wok world this weekend so watch for goodies to come from him.
    PS I have a new address which still hasn't shown up in the update section. It's if anybody else wants the recipe.
