Published October 7th 2017
Stir-frying is not only one of the easiest and fastest ways to cook, but also one of the most healthy – using little oil and retaining more nutrients than other methods of cooking. It also requires very little equipment: All you need is a wok, a knife, and a chopping board.
In Stir Crazy, Ching explains the techniques behind making a good stir-fry, with tips on controlling the heat, choosing the right oils, and planning the right order in which to add your ingredients. The focus is on simple preparations to entice even those with little or no cooking skills to try something new. The recipes include both Asian and Western ingredients readily available in any supermarket, ranging from Chinese “Pesto” Noodles with Kale and Asparagus and Egg Fried Rice to Chicken with Green Beans in Spicy Garlic Sauce and Peanut Beef with Edamame. So whether you eat meat or are a vegetarian, love carbs or avoid them, want something special or have to feed your family in a hurry, all you need to do is pick up a wok.
