Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
Here are some of our new favorite non-beef burgers: Italian Turkey Burger, Grilled Tuna Burger and Goat Cheese Portobello Burger. You’ll want to perfect these before football season starts up in a few weeks! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

stir fry on the wok

here is something i have been doing every week now that i got the spider & wok and now we can never have chinese out again. 

i get the egg up to 550, and then put the wok on, close the lid for a few mins then open her up and start wokking. 
the liquid i use is half beef broth, half tamari with some oyster sauce, mirin, sriracha, tonkatsu sauce and a dash of unagi sauce. 
the little bowl has fresh ginger & garlic, green onions, thai hot peppers.
the veg is broccoli, carrots, orange bell pepper, bok choy, snow peas, green peas. and i used leftover ribs from this cook here .

    Looks great!

    I agree, take out places have nothing on cooking on a wok yourself. I'm glad now I will be able to post some of my stir-fry cook since all of them usually end up with it being dark so the pictures don't turn out.

    Shrimp Fried Rice

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    8 ounces Shrimp, small, shelled and deveined

    1/2 teaspoon Salt, kosher

    Black pepper, freshly ground

    1/2 teaspoon Corn Starch

    2 tablespoons Peanut Oil, divided

    3 Eggs, beaten

    2 stalks Green onions , minced

    4 cups Rice, long grain, leftover, grains separated well

    3/4 cup Peas and Carrots, Frozen, defrosted

    1 tablespoon Soy Sauce

    1 teaspoon Dark Soy Sauce, to give color

    1 teaspoon Sesame Oil


    Directions:

    1.In a bowl, toss the shrimp with the salt, pepper and cornstarch. Let marinate for 10 minutes at room temperature. Heat a wok on high heat. When the wok is hot enough for a bead of water to instantly sizzle and evaporate, add just 1 tablespoon of the cooking oil and swirl to coat wok.

    2. Add the shrimp, quickly spreading out around the cooking surface area so that they are not overlapping. Let fry, untouched for 30 seconds. Flip over and let the other side fry for 30 seconds, or until about 80% cooked through. Remove the shrimp from the wok onto a plate, leaving as much oil in the wok as possible.

    3.Let the wok heat up again. Add the eggs, stirring in a quick motion to break up and scramble the eggs. When the eggs are almost cooked through (they should still be slightly runny in the middle), dish out of the wok into the same plate as the cooked shrimp.

    4.Use paper towels to wipe the same wok clean and return to high heat with the remaining 1 tablespoon of cooking oil, swirling to coat. When the oil is very hot, add the green onions and fry until fragrant, about 15 seconds. Add in the rice and stir well to mix in the green onions throughout. Spread the rice all around the wok surface area and let the rice heat up, untouched until you hear the bottoms of the grains sizzle, about 1-2 minutes. Use the chuan to toss the rice, again spreading the rice out over the surface of wok.

    5.Drizzle the soy sauce and dark soy sauce all around the rice and toss. Add the peas and carrots, the cooked eggs, shrimp and sesame oil, tossing to mix the rice evenly with all of the ingredients. Let everything heat back up again, until the rice grains are so hot they practically dance! Taste and add an additional 1 teaspoon of soy sauce if needed. 

    Notes:
