Giveaway – Chosen Foods Products

The Chinese New Year is rapidly approaching and we’re in a festive mood, so we’ve partnered with Chosen Foods for another fantastic Wok Wednesdays giveaway!

We all know that stir-frying means high heat, and high heat means you need a good oil, one with a high smokepoint that can take a little abuse. Avocado oil fits the bill, and is one of my favorite stir-fry oils. Chosen Foods brand avocado oils are my go-to for their consistency and quality.


Chosen Foods will give one lucky Wok Wednesdays member a package containing one bottle of avocado oil, one bottle of avocado oil spray, and two finishing sesame oils. All you have to do to enter is a leave a comment on this post answering the following question (inspired by WW superstar member Karen Kerr):

What are the three most important things you’ve learned about stir-frying since joining Wok Wednesdays?

The giveaway is open until 11:59pm EST on Thursday, February 19th – Chinese New Years.

Good luck, and keep on wokking!

Some Changes

Happy Monday, and happy 2015! As we approach our third (I know!) year of Wok Wednesdays, we’ve decided to make some important format changes to the group.

Going forward, the vast majority of Wok Wednesdays posts and discussion will be held on our Facebook group. We are rapidly approaching 1000 members of the Facebook group, and it has proven itself to be a much easier medium for folks to connect, share, and learn about stir-frying than the blog has.

The blog will remain up – it will host the rules and basic information, the recipe schedule, and our giveaways. Additionally, I will be posting monthly roundups of Wok Wednesdays member photos, news, and other fun tidbits.

Grace and I would like to thank everyone who has participated in Wok Wednesdays – you have helped turn this crazy idea in a phenomenon! We can’t wait to stir-fry our way into 2015 and beyond with everyone!

– Matt

LYL – Chinese-American Stir-Fried Cabbage with Bacon

(Note – this post is about a week late due to me moving and being without regular internet access. Apologies!)

I was very excited for this recipe, not only because its easy and one of my favorites, but also because it comes from one of Wok Wednesdays’s biggest cheerleaders, Tane Chan of San Francisco’s The Wok Shop. This dish is a fantastic winter stir-fry, and a great accompaniment to steak, pork, or even roast chicken.

LYL – Stir-Fried Ginger Tomato Beef

I don’t know about the weather where you live, but here in central North Carolina its dreary and drizzly, the perfect day for a warming recipe like today’s selection – Stir-Fried Ginger Tomato Beef! This is a great way to use out-of-season tomatoes, and the ginger really adds a zip to the dish.

By the way, today is our 59th recipe from Stir-Frying to the Sky’s Edge, which means we are more than halfway through the book! Woohoo!

So today not only do I want to hear how you fared with this week’s recipe, but I also want you to share your favorite recipe so far! Leave a comment below with your thoughts and/or a link to your blog post.
