Depending on what you’re making, a wok can be an excellent choice. Here are some tips and idea from DealDash for wok cooking.
Wok cooking is traditionally Asian in nature, and some people might have never even used a wok. I’m here to tell you that wok cooking is fast, easy, and delicious. You can always just use a frying pan, but there are many advantages to using a wok instead. Read on for more details on wok cooking from DealDash.
Cook Food Faster
Firstly, and possibly most important to many people is the fact that cooking with a wok is a lot faster than using a traditional pan. The main reason that you can cook foods so much faster by using a wok is in the design. The wok has been designed to disperse the heat more effectively throughout the base of the frying pan, and as a result taking much less time to finish food preparation.
Cook a Variety of Foods in the Wok
Step aside, frying pan. The wok is here to school you on cooking a variety of different types of food. Sure, you can cook things like eggs and bacon in a frying pan, but in the wok, you can cook those AND so much more. Here are some examples: stir frying, steaming, deep frying, poaching, boiling, braising, searing, stewing, making soup, smoking and roasting nuts. The way the wok has been designed lends its use to pretty much any type of cooking that needs to be done, not just frying.
Get Better Flavors With the Wok
When you’re cooking with the wok, you’re bound to get better flavors out of your food. The wok is designed to cook food faster, as we already discussed. When you cook the foods faster it seals in the flavor and doesn’t dry out the food. No one likes tough, over-cooked meat and limp veggies. Use a wok and eliminate those problems for good. Another reason that
Another reason that you get better flavors when using a wok is that of the shape of the design allows for better mixing of the ingredients. When you use a frying pan you’re very limited in your mixing abilities because of the low sides. When you use a wok you have much higher sides to work with, and therefore an easier time mixing the food as you cook it, leading to better flavor overall. Certainly, the frying pan has its place in your kitchen, but when it comes to cooking dinner, I reach for my wok every time.
