Wok Wednesdays Month-Long Birthday Celebration

On May 16th Wok Wednesdays officially turns one! Over the past year we have grown together as a group, exploring some of the amazing recipes in Grace Young’s Stir-Frying to the Sky’s Edge, and learning more about the ancient and fascinating cooking style of the stir-fry.

  1. My favorite recipe is the Stir-Fried Chicken with Carrots and Mushrooms. It was comforting, just as the description stated. I could not get enough. Yum, yum.

  2. My favorite recipe has been the Classic Dry-Fried Pepper and Salt Shrimp. I’ve never had such flavorful shrimp, and stir-frying without liquid was a revelation to me.

  3. My favorite has been the Hakka-style cabbage with egg. So simple, and I love to make it for quick lunch with a little vinegar or sambal. Tasty!

  4. Pingback: LYL – Velvet Chicken with Asparagus | wokwednesdays

  5. Oh that’s a tough question! Do I have to pick just one? How about two. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Chinese Burmese Chili Chicken and Chicken Lo Mein, where I made my own noodles!

  6. Just checked out Kitchen Works – that my friend is a dangerous link! I can see myself getting into lots of trouble. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  7. Harriet Schmidt

    I have not yet gotten started. Hoping to get the book and wok for Mother’s Day. Want to specialize in healthy chinese cooking Love, love, love, the food!

  8. I liked the velvet chicken and asparagus best so far, although I am a late starter and need to try some of the recipes that have already been done by the group.

  9. Steve Morgan

    Beef and Broccoli is the favorite for my kids, so that’s good enough for me.

  10. Velvet chicken tomorrow with string beans instead of asparagus. Asparagus is not a favorite of ours.

  11. Karen Borowski

    I just received the book and am asking for a “field trip” to San Francisco’s Chinatown for Mother’s Day! Then I will have the tools and ingredients to make stir fried chili scallops with baby bok choy. Mmm..two of my favorites: scallops and chilies-can’t wait!

  12. My favorite recipe is the Classic Dry Fried Pepper & Salt Shrimp. It’s so easy to do & even more amazing when the shrimp is fresh and you put the whole stir fry dish over a bed of steaming, fragrant jasmine rice. So simple yet delish. I’ve enjoyed Grace’s cookbooks even before I knew she was the Wok Goddess. Thanks for bringing us all together, Matthew!

  13. I made the cabbage and bacon as a side dish and really loved it ( you can’t go wrong with bacon!). I’ve just recently joined this group so am not sure if this dish has been made yet.

  14. Hmmmmm……only one recipe……. Everything as Ben delicious so far. I’m going to pick what I made last night which was a hit with our group……Classic Dry-Fried Pepper and Salt Shrimp.

    So gooood!

    I just found this group and I am looking forward to participating now that my teaching schedule is winding down. The shrimp and rum looks interesting to me – something I would never make without some encouragement ๐Ÿ™‚

  16. E.J. Stone-Ehrhardt

    My favorite: The Hakka cabbage. I was surprised I could like cabbage so much. Plus, I really enjoyed Grace’s description of that ethnic group in the book. I gained an expanded palate and an enhanced worldview–that sums up Wok Wednesdays for me as well.

  17. Hakka cabbage with egg was my favourite so far.

  18. Some expert in raw food movement say that due to heat, a centrifuge juicer can destroy all enzymes or a part of them.
    The most recent model of the Power Juicer incorporates soy technology for making
    high protein drinks and is called the Elite model.

    Fruits with high amount of citric acid should be consumed in moderation.
