Have you ever heard of the phrase, “Happy Wok?” If not, then you should. Woks are typically used in the Chinese and Vietnamese cuisines. They are small and usually round, sometimes oval, and deep enough to hold a full sized plate. They can be made from many different types of materials, but they are primarily made from a material known as “kerosene”.
In Chinese cooking, wok means “dish on a stick” or “stew pan”. A wok is used for frying various types of food, and its lid is placed over it so that the food is cooked quickly and easily. A wok may also be called a “quenching pan” because it is used to cook food that is not to be served immediately, such as soups or stews. Woks are very popular in eastern countries because it is easier to do long and detailed cooking on them. They are typically cleaned by using water and a small amount of dish washing liquid, either by hand or in a sink basin.
Woks are used in restaurants and many Chinese eateries around the world. It is common to see Chinese people eating in restaurants with wok noodles. A wok has become an icon of Chinese cuisine and most people associate it with Chinese New Years. Although woks are primarily used for cooking, some restaurants will use it as a form of salad. Woks are considered appropriate for large groups. For this reason, they are commonly seen outside restaurants in shopping malls.
The first step in cooking a happy wok is to choose your food. Typical Chinese foods such as chicken and beef are best suited for this type of frying pans. You will have much more flexibility when frying foods that you normally would by using a frying pan. When using vegetables and fruits, you might want to try using small wok spoons so that you can stir the food without having to use both hands.
Once your choice of food is complete, you will need to add your seasonings and your cooking oil. Seasoning is essential for ensuring that your dish has an aroma that will linger on your guests’ taste buds. For Chinese food, a popular seasoning is soy sauce. Some chefs add chili paste, garlic and ginger to their wok noodles before completing the frying process. Other ingredients you might consider using include vinegar, sugar, sesame oil and fish sauce.
After your ingredients are ready, you will want to prepare your wok noodles. These are usually referred to as “servings” since they are the main course of most Chinese meal plans. Typically, wok noodles are thin rice noodles that are deep-fried. Chinese will typically stir these wok noodles in a bowl of hot water for several minutes until they are completely done. This is an easy process, which you can easily master if you want to enjoy a happy wok.
To cook your foods in a more environmentally friendly and healthy manner, it’s best to use a bamboo steamer. A bamboo steamer is a special type of steamer that utilizes water-filled tubes to create steam inside of the wok. A bamboo steamer is a much more convenient method of cooking than other means, such as using a regular food burner. Bamboo steamsers usually have a minimum of four separate compartments that are all accessible on one side of the unit.
When using a bamboo steamer to cook your dishes, it is important to ensure that your food is adequately cooked and that no moisture escapes from your food. Since bamboo steaming is an extremely slow process, it takes about fifteen minutes for a good soak. If using a steamer to cook your Happy Wok noodles, it is imperative that you place your noodles on a bamboo steamer about twelve inches away from the heat. You should also ensure that you clean your Happy Wok thoroughly after each use.
