Bored With Your Meals? Get A Wok!

My Wok.  It is one of the most versatile tools in my kitchen!  It's a 14-inch cast iron wok from Lodge.  Life long durable, this wok is very easy to use, fits perfectly on my gas stove top burner, and has excellent heat retention.  Plus, as an extra bonus, the wok cleans up in a snap.  I also have a lid for the wok; it fits both the wok and Lodge's 15-inch cast iron skillet.  The lid comes in very handy when I want to keep things warm for a few minutes, or when I need to use some vegetable broth and steam to finish cooking larger stir-fried vegetables.

Stir-fry dishes are easy to prepare in a snap.  Sometimes I use a true recipe, other times I just throw together whatever I have on hand, including fresh vegetables that need to be used up.  And the wok is not just for stir fry meals, it is so versatile for general sauteing, including making the best sauteed vegetables.

Here are a couple recent wok-prepared meals:  (1) Shrimp and Bacon with Pea Pods and Yellow Bell Pepper, and (2) Chinese BBQ Pork Tenderloin with Green Beans and Red Bell Pepper.  A snap to prepare and beyond delicious!

Oh, and for great wok-based recipes and general Asian cooking inspiration, visit the Wok & Skillet website!  Both of the above stir fries are based on recipes from Char's website.

If you're looking to simply meal preparation - and jazz up your cooking - get a wok today!
