June Recipe Schedule

Happy June! Exciting news – we just celebrated the 5th Anniversary of Wok Wednesdays! Can you believe that we’ve been stir-frying for more than five years now!? This photo below is from the very first time Grace and I met back in April of 2012.

June signals the start of the summer produce season for many people and stir-frying is a fantastic way to cook the bounty. We have two recipes to make again this month, but I also want to encourage you to try your hand at some free-style stir-fries with your local fresh veggies. Here are our June recipes:

  • Susan Lin’s Summer Long Beans with Eggs, p. 140
  • Susanna Foo’s Mango Chicken, p. 78

As always, join in the discussion, ask questions, and share your photos on our Facebook page.

Best,

Matt

The Breath of the Wok Recipe Schedule

We’ve only got one recipe left to cook in Stir-Frying to the Sky’s Edge, can you believe it! When we began this journey in 2012 the idea of finishing was far off in the distance, and yet here we are.

Once we switch over to The Breath of the Wok (read more about our transition here) I will redo the Recipe Schedule page, but for now I’ve got the first few recipes listed below. Remember, we’re changing the format of Wok Wednesdays a bit – this time around it will be one or two recipes a month to do at your leisure.

September:

  • Liang Nian Xiu’s Snow Peas, Tomatoes, and Chilies, page 132
  • Jean Yueh’s Beef with Onions and Peppers, page 94

October:

  • Uncle Sherman’s Home-Style Chicken and Vegetables, page 69
  • Susanna Foo’s Tofu, Eggplant, Mushrooms, and Sun Dried Tomatoes, page 143

November:

  • Jean Yueh’s Shanghai Shrimp, page 106
  • Sweet and Sour Cabbage, page 146

December:

  • Florence Line’s Slow Stir-Fried Red Peppers, page 143

Q&C – Stir-fried Chili Scallops

I hope I’m not the only one intrigued by the idea of stir-frying scallops. Believe it or not I’ve never cooked scallops before, so I’ve referred to this handy guide from The Kitchn: How to Buy Scallops.

Before you get started, any questions or comments on the recipe?
