First Wok Cook

Fired up my Ceramic Grill Store carbon steel wok on Saturday and tried my hand at my favorite ethnic food. I started with fried rice:
Next came the stir-fried veggies (frozen from a bag):
Then went the spicy honey chicken (which I cooked before the veggies and pulled off until the veggies were done:
On the plate it looks like this:

All in all it was a good outcome. The American in me screams for something fried though, so the next round might require the cast iron skillet first for the chicken. Unless you can deep fry in a wok????

    Great start! As for deep frying in a wok, I'd be careful about doing it on the egg. An oil spill could be a real disaster. I've done some great chicken dishes where I rolled the chicken pieces in corn starch and fried them in a skillet inside, then added them to the veggies cooked in the wok. Turned out super!

    Have fun with it! Probably 1/3 of my egg cooks are now done with the wok!

    Stir fry looks great, nice first run with the wok. ;)

    Here is a recent thread about deep frying.

    At home, in my kitchen, I deep fry in my wok all the time. It's the only pan I use for deep fry. I also make chili, etc, in my wok. Haven't tried it on the egg yet.
  • Great job - looks very very good!! Maybe not "deep fry" but you can certainly add a bit more oil and get a similar effect.
