Last Minute Thrown Together Stir Fry

edited June 2012 in EggHead Forum

It already feels like summer is bearing down on us here in Dallas. I don't know how many more nights Mrs. G and I will be able to come home and sit on the patio and have a drink and discuss our day while the dogs play in the yard. Soon its going to be too hot for that. After the rain the previous night and most of yesterday, it was a nice 77ish degrees outside so we took advantage of it....so much so we totally forgot about planning or making dinner. Once we got hungry, it was a quick look through the fridge and pantry to see what we could scrounge up and we decided on some stir fy. No recipe, nothing fancy, just what we had on hand. WE had the dome stabilized at 550 F before we started, FYI.

Is this what they mean by wok hay (breath of wok)?

I might have gone overboard with the Sriracha and Chili Garlic, but we wouldn't know that till later.

And plated on some rice with some eggrolls

For a last minute cook, it wasn't half bad.  A bit on the spicy side, but still better (and cheaper) than if we would have ordered in.

Also, this was the first time I used RO red bag that I got from Walmart. I have always been told that RO, Kroger and Big Green Egg are the same. It seemed like this stuff came up to temp a whole bunch quicker, like 400F in 5 minutes and seemed like it burned a lot cleaner with less smoke. Can't wait to use it again to see if that was true or my imagination. If so, I might switch over and start using this stuff more.

    That Looks awesome. Last Night here was great. Wife and I sat out on the patio and enjoyed it. I was going to do stir fry also but made tamales instead with homemade Ancho Chilli. I used VI's secret Texas Recipe and it came out fantastic.

    Im afraid the cool nights are gone till late Sept.

    Thanks tjv. I really love the wok and spider, they work so great. I might be giving you a call in the next few weeks about purchasing some more stuff.

    BTW...I don't know what the deal is with photobubket, or what you guys are seeing, but I did edit these pictures (mainly to get some of the yellow out in the last two....damned lighting in the kitchen) and they did have a border around them, but that isn't showing up for me. WTH? So I apologize for that.

    What temp do you wok at?
  • GriffinGriffin Posts: 7,423
    I usually get it stabilized at 550, then shut down the bottom vent and wok with the lid open. You'll need thick gloves, like welding gloves.

    Cool.. it is on my "list" of stuff, but not on the top just yet. I bet it cooks the shrimp amazingly fast, and I think it would be a good way to get my wife into the egg stuff hehe.

    Wokking on the egg is great!   Prep takes awhile but usually get 2-3 nights dinner out of a good sized stir fry!  Cooking time is usually 10-15 minutes or less and the flavor is awesome!  Enjoy it and let us know how it works out!
  • BayaradBayarad Posts: 306
    And of course Griffin, your cook looked awesome!

    The actual act of stir fry takes mere moments. It's the prep and the cleanup that take the time.
