Stir-Fry!

Daniel (fiancee) got me a wok for Chanukah - a really good one! I love making stir-fry, but didn't have the right cookware for it and so it would get really messy, lol.

Anyway, I started this thread not necessarily for recipes, but to see what people like to put in their stir-fry.

I like, broccoli, carrots, baby corn, cauliflower and beef (I am a picky eater which limits it for me, but I do make onions and peppers in a seperate pan for Daniel to add to his)

I am an Asian stirfry maniac - lol!! Have lost count of all the Asian cookbooks I have, not to mention all the recipes I've developed through experimentation. Anyway, even though this isn't the "poultry" forum, this is one of my own favorites:

Chicken Asparagus with Oyster/Black Bean Sauce
2 boneless skinless chicken breast pieces (about a pound or so), sliced & cut into bitesized pieces
1 bunch fresh asparagus (about a pound or so), tough ends trimmed & cut into 2" pieces
2 stalks of Bok Choy, ends trimmed, cut into 1" pieces
2" piece of fresh Ginger, peeled & minced
3 large or 6 small cloves of garlic, peeled & chopped
3 tablespoons Chinese salted/preserved/fermented black beans
2 tablespoons oyster sauce
3 tablespoons dry sherry
1 teaspoon oriental chile paste/sauce
8 fresh shitake mushrooms, stemmed & quartered
3 tablespoons or so Peanut or vegetable oil for stirfrying
Cooked Jasmine Rice for serving.

Soak beans in hot tap water to cover & let sit for 15 minutes. Drain beans, add garlic, & mash together with a fork to make a rough paste. Add sherry, oyster sauce, & chile paste & stir.
Bring a pot of water large enough to hold asparagus pieces to a boil & add all asparagus pieces except for the tips. Boil for 2 minutes, then add tips & boil for another minute. Drain.
Make rice according to package directions.
Heat wok (or large frying/saute pan) until drop of water sizzles. Add oil & swirl.
Add Bok Choy & ginger & stirfry for 1 minute. Add chicken pieces & continue stirfrying until chicken is just about cooked thru. Add mushrooms & stirfry for another minute. Add blanched asparagus & bean paste mixture & stir for another minute. (If there isn't enough moisture in the pan, you can add a splash or 2 of water or chicken broth.)
Serve over Jasmine Rice.

forgive me, but what are cloud ears?

I didn't mention seasoning with mine...I use soy sauce, ginger, garlic, stir-fry sauce, chili powder and a tad of thai peanut dressing

I like to keep my stri-fries simple... usually just one or two veggies, a meat, whatever sauce I'm in the mood for, served over lo mein or fried rice.

I love my sauce thick, like chinese-take out sauces usually are, so I always make sure to add a little bit of water/flour slurry to my wok about a minute before everything is finished cooking. It gets a nice glaze over everything, and really helps the sauces stick to your meats and veggies.

If I need to thicken a stirfry sauce, I always combine a tablespoon of cornstarch with a tablespoon or 2 of water & add that. You don't have to "cook" it & thus avoid any possible raw flour taste or lumps.

Hey Imw80. How are you? Don't you just love your wok? I have a Cast Iron Wok. It took me awhile to cure it. I have had it for about 5 years now. When my friends come over I have to hide it. It was one of those things, I was at the right [place at the right time}. There was only one. I grabbed it up so fast, I did not care about the price.

I believe if my husband and I were to divorce, it would be in the decree. (sorry Honey the wok is mine)

Seafood is my favorite mixed with veggies, fresh ginger root, garlic and a little bit soy sauce, cornstarch, and water to thicken. WHITE RICE PLEASE.
