How to Choose a Wok

There are many kinds and brands of woks to choose from.  I love Helen Chen’s Asian Kitchen Flat Bottom Wok, Carbon Steel with Lid. The flat bottom sits securely on my stove. Some people have electric woks and others prefer cast iron.

How to Make this Pork Stir Fry Recipe

1.  Heat the olive oil in a wok or a large frying pan with high sides over medium-high heat. Add the pork and cook, stirring occasionally, until the pork is nicely browned on all sides, around 3-4 minutes.

2.  Add bell pepper, green onion, ginger, cashews, and garlic powder. Season with salt and black pepper, to taste. Stir fry the veggies until they become crisp-tender, around 2-3 minutes.

3.  Add the bok choy, sesame oil, and tamari. Continue to stir fry until the bok choy wilts and the other ingredients are coated, approximately 1-2 minutes.

4.  Remove from heat and transfer to individual serving plates. Garnish with toasted sesame seeds, if desired, and serve immediately. Enjoy!

Have you tried low carb products?  I love to get their sampler box.  There’s a nice variety of bread, bagels, sweets, and even pasta.  At the moment, they only have a few Keto items, but I’m sure they’ll be adding more.  I’ve been a customer of theirs for years and enjoy their low carb bread and bagels the most!
