Recipe

  1. Mix the following together in a bowl
    • 1/2 tsp corn starch
    • 1/2 tsp white sugar
    • 1/2 - 1 tsp sambal (or other chili paste)

    Look at the mess in that kitchen!

  2. Heat a wok, carbon steel or any pan without a non-stick coating over high heat until it is hot. Don’t use a pan with a non-stick coating since they can’t handle these high temperatures. You might want to open a window and put the ventilation on high 🔥.

  3. Add a few tablespoons of vegetable oil to the hot pan which should start to smoke a little. Then add the bag of
    • 400 g pre-cut Asian vegetables
  4. Keep stirring constantly, while the heat remains on high. If it starts to smoke heavily, lower the heat slightly.

  5. After a few minutes the vegetables will start to turn soft. Then add the wok sauce and lower the temperature to medium-high.

  6. Cook the mixture for another minute or so. If the veggies released little water and you do not see a sauce forming, add a few table spoons of water to create a sauce.

Eat with some rice, awesome tofu chunks or roasted cashews.
