Wok Recipe Ingredient List

Simple Starter Wok Recipe

We encourage you to modify all of these wok recipes according to your own preferences and according to how your stove, wok and cooking environments differ from ours. You may find that your cooking times are faster or slower than ours. You may want to vary your ingredients for this wok recipe or for another recipe. What is important is to pay attention to things that apply to all wok recipes - prawns will always cook faster than big hunks of mushrooms - for example. Practice this and other recipes following our times, amounts, and ingredient lists as closely as possible at first, but then start to modify as you would like as soon as you are comfortable with the wok cooking methods and techniques.

In this recipe, our snap peas were a little more tough than usual and more stringy, so we added them to the wok a little earlier than usual to give them a little more cooking time to make up for their tougher quality. Our portabella mushroom was a little less ripe than we like, but we did not make any changes for it.
