    I will try to help.But first you are a candidate for the books:The Breath of A Wok.& The Foods Of Vietnam.

    You may be able to check them out at the library.But are good to own.

     I would heat  the wok until a drop of water vaporizes immediately add 1 tbls peanut or grapeseed some onions and garlic and ginger for about a minute,Add the bamboo shoots baby corn and chesnuts and cook about 2 more minutes.Remove to a bowl. Add 1 tbls peanut, or grapeseed oil add shrooms,bell pepper, and broccoli. Stir fry for about 2 minutes.Add the shrimp and ingredients in the bowl and stirfry  until shrimp are cooked about 1-2 minutes .I usually work from a recipe.It helps to have all your ingredients ready and also make up a cheat sheet that lists the order the food goes in and for how long.

    Never add too much meat of vegies at one time.otherwise you will lower the wok temp and you will be steaming or sauteing in stead of stirfrying.Hope this gets you in the ball park.Stir fried rice is a good one to try.But check out those books.Very good!

    veggies and pork

  • Thanks bud, we will give it a shot.

    Good Point... If not, you need to clean it and season it before cooking.I just took that for granted.

    If you want info on how to do that go and great store for accessories

    It should look something like this.

    Montreal ok to use as a rub?
  • lousubcaplousubcap Posts: 10,564
    Montreal okay only if you live north of the border :)>-  And there are many who reside here that do, so you may just be able to pull it off:)  But Quebec vs the remainder-no clue.

    Montreal is good but I suggest to add it after the high temp sear - burnt pepper = no good
