Wok as a gift..

So DH insisted that we register for a wok for our wedding.  I have never used one and neither has he but for some reason we NEEDED it and we got it.  Anyone have any good recipes they can recommend of dishes we can make with our new wok?

Re: Wok as a gift..

  • Beef and Broccoli Stir Fry (from a Campbell's soup recipe)

    Top Round London Broil - maybe a pound or so, cut into thin strips about 1" long.

    1 tbsp vegetable oil

    One can tomato soup (store brand is fine)

    3 tbsp soy sauce

    1 tbsp white vinegar

    Dash of garlic powder

    Broccoli florets

    Optional, but yummy: Carrots, sugar snap peas, snow peas, water chestnuts,  bamboo shoots, baby corn

    Red pepper flakes (optional - I don't use these, so I don't even know how much is recommended).

    I make this is a pan, not a wok, so you will probably have to experiment with time and temperature.  I also recommend prepping your meat and veggies before you start cooking anything.  Freeze the meat a little beforehand - it makes it easier to trim the fat and cut into strips.

    Heat oil over medium heat.  Add beef strips and cook until brown and juices evaporate (I just leave the juices otherwise the meat will dry out).

    Add tomato soup, soy sauce, vinegar, garlic powder and optional red pepper flakes.  Stir in with the meat.  Bring to a low boil.

    Add all veggies (stir to coat with sauce) and cook until tender crisp (covered).

    Serve over white rice.

  • Oh and don't feel bad if you don't use the wok right away.  We just used the breadmaker that we NEEDED and we still have not used the ice cream maker that we NEEDED.

  • We love our Wok.  I don't have a receipe really but I buy the frozen stri fry veggies and cook them and some chicken and Pad Thai noodles.  If you buy Pad Thai noodles it has a receipe on the box.
