Cooking with a wok

Cooking with a wok not only raises awareness of food and healthy eating, but also provides a positive aspect. You are doing something healthy for yourself, because freshly prepared, healthy dishes are definitely better than ready-made meals in a package or fast food. It is relatively easy to cook healthy and at the same time tasty and varied dishes with a wok. And the best part is that you can usually get your desired product relatively fast! How? We will give you first insights into the topic ""wok"".

Preparation is important

It is important to have all desired ingredients prepared in advance since you should always keep an eye on them while they are in the wok and want to avoid any chaos when you are cooking. Thus, cut them to the desired size so you can place them into the wok one after the other and in the right order. Please note that the cutting size has an influence on the cooking time. Use only suitable, highly heatable oil or fat for searing!

A small selection of possible ingredients

Vegetables, pasta, meat, fish? There are many possibilities. Pay attention to the correct sequence when adding the ingredients into the wok, depending on their required cooking time! Of course, this is a matter of taste.

1 = first 2 = middle 3 = last

1 Hard vegetables, such as carrots, peppers, zucchini or broccoli
1 Meat or fish
2 Sprouts
2 Nuts
2 Onions
2 Mushrooms
2-3 Soft vegetables, such as tomatoes, corn, leafy vegetables
3 Pasta or rice (previously cooked)
3 Spices 3 Sauce (if desired and then let it steep)

Preparation methods for woks

Stirring, turning, flipping, panning
Use some oil (not too much!) and heat it slowly. Be sure to put the ingredients in the wok in the order of their required cooking time. This will prevent some ingredients from burning and others from getting undercooked. By constantly stirring or turning the ingredients with a wooden spoon they will stay in motion. This results in the food touching the hot wok surface only for a short time over and over and it is thus cooked gently and evenly.

Tip: Simply pull fully cooked ingredients with your cooking spoon to the edge, the temperature is not as high there. Mix all the ingredients well at the end, season to taste, and look forward to enjoying your meal! Use rounded wooden spoons or silicone cooking spoons if possible to avoid damaging the wok coating.
