I love my big, black, sturdy… wok.

Yeah, it rhymes, but I promise I wasn’t going there. Now, get your mind out of the gutter and back to spicy cashew chicken.

Seriously, my wok has got to be one of the most valuable things in my kitchen. My cherry red Kitchenaid stand mixer is amazing. I will never dispute that, but the things it does, I could do myself (just not as quickly, effectively, or without complaining later about how sore my arms are). My food processor, just as awesome, but I would never tell a new cook they must have one. The meat grinder, deep fryer, sausage stuffer, 15 types of baking pans and three crock pots are all amazing tools – But the must have, the secret weapon, the key ingredient to graduating to the supreme level of iron chefdom – a good heavy cast iron wok. Or at least if you want to graduate to “quick delicious healthy fast weeknight dinner on the table chef“.

OK, I won’t lie. You should really have a crock pot, wooden spoon,  and iron skillet too. I think those are pretty much staples.

haha.....I love my wok too!! I cook pretty much everything in the wok (because I'm so Asian? lol), though I'll admit, I don't do much cooking :) Your stir fry looks delicious!! hmm....wooden spoon isn't one of my kitchen staples! I have one, but it pretty much just sits in the drawer :D

Wonderful! This is a great dish...I've been making a lot of asian inspired dishes this week (this one looks ah-may-zing!). I had a weighted bottom non-stick wok with a handle that I LOVED (not a traditional one - I know...) and it was wonderful! After 28 years, it finally bit the dust. I'm on the hunt for it's replacement! I'd LOVE to see a pic of your wok on your next post!
