You Will Need
- A wok
- A grill
- Stir-fry ingredients
- A wok spatula
- A wok ring (optional)
- Gloves (optional)
Choose a wok
Choose a wok that is deep and round instead of flat-bottomed, has a long handle, and is made of carbon steel. This type of wok will maintain adequate heat.
Prepare ingredients before cooking either as called for by a recipe or by cutting meat and vegetables into uniform pieces to ensure even cooking.
Heat the wok
Heat the wok on a hot grill before adding anything to it. Wait until the surface begins to let off some smoke and then dribble in enough oil to coat its surface, heating the oil for 30 seconds.
Add ingredients in small batches. Most recipes call for stir-frying meat or poultry before vegetables.
Toss the food
Keep the food in constant motion by stirring with your wok spatula or toss by holding the wok handle.
Listen to the sizzle
Listen to the sizzling sound of food cooking in your wok. If the sound slows, slow down the stirring.
Continue stirring until the ingredients are cooked through. Then add seasonings and serve.
