What sort of wok should I buy?

stainless-steel-wokI love Asian food. I love the fresh ingredients and the ease with which I can cook up a healthy meal full of wonderful flavors and aromas. If I had my way this is all I would eat.

I think my favorite is Thai. One of my favorite eating places in the town where I live is a restaurant called Thai Spice. The food is always beautifully cooked, well presented and the taste is divine.

My brother’s girlfriend is Thai and on their last visit both she and my brother cooked up 3 Thai dishes for dinner one night. I just loved it and was eating it as leftovers for the next two days. That’s saying a lot for me because I am just not into eating leftovers.

But as always, I am getting sidetracked as I really wanted to talk about woks. I think woks would have to be one of the most useful of cookware items. They are reasonably priced and at a pinch can cook a multitude of things over and above the normal Asian cuisine.

The shape of a wok ensures that food is cooked evenly and quickly and it is a healthy alternative as minimal fat is required in order to sear foods.

The key to cooking in a wok are high temperatures and continual stirring of the ingredients.

It is also not necessary to spend a lot of money on a wok in order to ensure good cooking results.
