Kitchen Hint of the Day!

Wok you say……

Wanting to make a recipe and it calls for a wok and you don’t have one, no problem! Just use a big, flat-bottomed pan that gives the ingredients room to make contact with the heated surface. And big enough to give the ingredients a flip or two while cooking. Also another hint; Always serve the stir-fried dish immediately, since the bite-sized pieces cool down very quickly. Wok on!

Some great Stir-Fry ideas and recipes from the EatingWell website.

30-Minute Stir-Fry Recipes
Healthy stir-fry recipes in 30 minutes or less.EatingWell2
For a quick and healthy dinner, make one of our easy stir-fry recipes loaded with fresh vegetables, lean protein and flavorful stir-fry sauces. Our chicken stir-fry recipes, beef stir-fry recipes and more healthy stir-fry recipes are ready in 30 minutes or less. Try our Stir-Fried Chile Beef & Broccoli for an authentic Chinese beef stir-fry or Scallop Scampi with Peppers for a colorful stir-fry recipe with seafood.



Stir-Fried Chile Beef & Broccoli
This quick stir-fry features broccoli and flank steak in a flavorful sauce. This dish is typical of many traditional Chinese stir-fries—the sauce just clings to the beef and vegetables but is not enough to spoon over rice. Marinating beef is essential for ensuring the meat is flavorful. The meat does not marinate overnight, as in traditional Western recipes. The moment the beef is combined with the seasonings it is ready to be stir-fried……



Scallop Scampi with Peppers
Use a mixture of bell peppers for a colorful (and vitamin C-packed) scallop stir-fry. Pat the scallops dry with a paper towel—if they are wet they will spatter when added to the wok and make the stir-fry too wet. This stir-fry is excellent served over linguine or fettuccine…..

Take care of that Wok…



Clean your wok by washing in hot water. To stop your wok from rusting, make sure it’s completely dry and then wipe the surface lightly with vegetable oil before packing away.

Thank you to Connie for passing these Stir-Fry Tips along to share.


Hint #1 – Always marinate your meat. It keeps meat tender and adds to the flavor.


Hint #2 – Have all ingredients chopped and measured before you start. Wash and dry well before chopping as wet veggies add moisture to the dish.


Hint #3 – Cut vegetables into similar-sized pieces so they’ll cook evenly.
