Some tips for making a good stir-fry recipe is to properly cut up the ingredients. To make a good stir-fry recipe you want to cut each ingredient to a uniform size. Cut the aromatics in the recipe and set them aside in a bowl. Finely slice, then mince, the ginger. Cut the vegetables in the recipe and set them aside as well. This healthy meal idea for stir-fry rice suggests using a large skillet, but you can also use a wok if you have one. A wok allows you to properly toss the ingredients and is always good for stir fries. When using a wok, you want to practice proper wok care after the wok is seasoned. Once a wok is seasoned it is hungry for fat, which means that it will soak up any fat you give it. This also helps to develop the seasoning on a new wok. You can cook anything that uses fat to include stir-fry recipes, deep-fat frying, cooking bacon, and more. Things you want to avoid with a wok include steaming, boiling, or poaching. You also want to avoid cooking with any acid such as vinegar, tomatoes, and lemons. These things are fine once you've been using the wok for a while, but can damage the delicate seasoning of a newly-seasoned wok. Woks go through different stages before they develop the deep patina and nonstick coating of a well-used wok. Woks can go through different stages, and at time the seasoning can look splotchy, develop rust spots or feel gummy. This is all fine. You want just to keep cooking with your wok, and the patina will slowly develop.
