Cooking Chinese food at home without a Wok
Yes, a wok is the traditional way to cook Chinese food. If you have a good wok and if you have a high BTU burner designed for woks, then you don't need to read this post. This is for those of us who don't have a wok at home but still want to make fresh Chinese food for ourselves and family.
So, you can cook without a wok? Definitely. I use a standard sized chicken fryer, like the one found on Amazon
. Just be sure to use high heat
when cooking most stir frys. You'll find that you can cook for 2 with a standard sized skillet, just be sure to not overcrowd the meat
when cooking. You should be able to see about 1/3 of the bottom of the pan or more when stir frying.
