We’re feeling pretty super, how about you? The big game is fast approaching, and while we love football, we love an excuse to invite people over and cook even more! You too can cook like a champion with recipes from Dr. BBQ’s NFL Gameday Cookbook: Grilled Tuna Sandwiches from Seattle and Baked Brie from New England. Who’s going to win? You’ll have to cook both to find out.

First time - Shrimp fried rice

By no means is my meal as good as some others i have seen on this site but, I am pretty happy with my first wok session. I had more fun than anything else. This egg has changed my whole outlook on cooking. I have never had the confidence to try a varied menu in fear of not satisfying my friends and family and most importantly my own expectations. As result of my egg purchase and the discovery of this forum, I am really leaning and appeasing my guest. Thanks for feeding my new found cooking experience.... 

Any how, just a simple shrimp fried rice dish cooked on the wok. I shut the lower vent with the temp at 400. 

Fried the shrimp
then eggs, wiped clean, 
added a lil oil and then then rice
added peas, carrots
then shrimp
eggs

I used grape seed oil to fry 
low sodium soy sauce
sesame oil (this smells so good)

It was simple. I plan to try a few more dishes this week.

  • That's awesome. My new wok and spider should be here this week and shrimp fried rice is near the top of the list!

    What kind of rice did you use? Do you fully cook it, let it cool, then fry it?

    Jasmine is my favorite rice. I seem to always make it nice and fluffy.

    Looks wonderful, Gata. What's under the wok? At first I thought it was a spider, but it appears to have multiple circular rings.

    @griffin- looks like a lump reducing ring setup from CGS. Probably works well to concentrate the heat on the wok.

    @gatabites- looks great!

    Hey @Griffin: thats the woo2 for the XL and the lump reduction ring. The ring is perfect for concentrating the heat directly under the wok. 

    I brought my leftovers for lunch today.

    Does grape seed oil change the flavor? I was going to use for taco shells but stuck with canola. I have a big jug i used for seasoning so looking to utilize it

    @skinnv - the rice was pretty good. The bottle says light all natural cooking oil. I have an unopened bottle of canola but i wanted to try the grapeseed. 

    I dont think it will hurt to try it. When i seasoned the wok with the grape seed, I smelled like grease. I didnt think i would like it but all grease gives an oder when frying.
