Learn To Stir-fry With a Chinese
Wok, and Make Delicious Stir-fry Recipes

Chinese Stir-fry

Chinese cooking has been popularized by its delicious recipes and also the quick and easy cooking method - stir-fry. Stir-frying allows you cook a variety of tasty recipes within minutes, and this is the reason why stir-frying is so popular.

So what exactly does stir-fry involve? You can pretty much use any type of cooking pot or pan, but of course, a Chinese wok is preferred. Read about why the wok is idea for stir-frying here. You'll also need some type of spatula - a stainless steel one is preferred, unless you're using Teflon coated wok or pan. Then use a wooden or plastic spatula. You can even just use chopsticks to stir-fry, if you're good at it. :)

You also need a decent amount of oil (canola oil is best for stir-frying, find out why here.) With a good stove that can generate lots of heat, you're set to go. Gas stoves are the best, since you have better and quicker control over the fire than electric stoves.

How to Stirfry

Before you even start stir-frying, you have to always keep one thing in mind: speed is the most important when stir-frying. Why? Simply because stir-frying is designed for quick cooking. This not only makes your food taste great (and fresh) it also preserves the color and aroma of the cooking ingredients.
