It was my best stir fry ever (I used stove wok before), and at first try! I can truly say the egg was worth the hype. 

I used this recipe (changed the veggies). (good wok tips in there)

Bye the way, the rum in the sauce was a surprising touch and yielded very good results.

    Very nice. Good call on the Sapporo.
    Be careful, man! I've got a beverage here.

    mmmmmm.... Sapporo....

    Man these Wok cooks are looking great.... The veggies seem so much more brightly colored than veggies that come off the stove/stir fry.... or am I just imagining things?

    Thanks. I dont think you are. They are definitely crispier and more flavorfull. The shrimps were out of this world.

    Great looking stir fry!

    One thing to add, just because I'm a beer snob...the Asian theme makes it an ok beer pairing, but you have a Japanese beer paired with Chinese cuisine ;)
    ...look for Tsingtao next time to make the pairing more complete!

    Thanks. I had seasoned it with Flax Seed oil and did the chive char technique. It lost a bit of seasoning when I cleaned it with water and wiped it with a paper towel after eating. I have since learned that once the food is cooked, I should empty the wok, rinse it with hot water, barely scrub with fingers or bamboo sticks and just flip it on the hot grill again before eating (dont dry it). 

    Is that how you guys clean the wok after a cook?
