Last week, I was contacted out of the blue by a fellow Egghead. Seems she sold her Mini egg and had a wok for it sitting around that she couldn't use. She asked if I wanted it. I always feel quilty when people offer stuff to me for free, but what could I say? (I will be sending her some goodies in the mail, but she don't know it yet. :wink: ) The wok came from The Wok Shop in San Francisco from what I gather

Not real well seasoned

Gave it a light scrub down, rubbed it lightly with peanut oil and then threw it on the large Egg at 425-450 for about 20 minutes. Then let it cool off and fried up some green onions on the stove to get rid of any metallic taste that might be lingering.

At this point, I had a choice to make...should I just stir fry on the large since it was already hot, or use the mini? Tough choice, huh? Until I realized the large was almost out of lump. Mini it is!
Some veggies

Mise en place

Hard to believe that the wok wasn't made just for the Mini Egg, isn't it?

Noodles and shrimp back in

For a first time, I think it went pretty well. I think I had my temps a bit low (can't remember now if I had it at 450 or 500, bourbon clouds the memory). I didn't dry the shrimp real well after I washed them so some water went in and cooled it down, that was just a dumb mistake on my part. I was also rushing it and didn't let it heat up enough between the shrimp and veggies, but once again, that was my fault. But all in all, it came out pretty good and it was fun to use the mini egg and the new wok. One nice thing was not having to wear welding gloves to get it done. That handle works out pretty nicely. Can't wait to play around with it some more.

Looks delicious, especially since you used some larger shrimp! Now you have me thinking about Chinese carryout for lunch... :lol:

Griffin, that is a work of art-- Beautiful! I am also a huge fan of those mini corn on the cobs. They really crack me up. :D

Looks awesome, although I have to admit its the first time I've seen Bourbon paired with stir fry. But hey, who am I to argue with success? Well done.

Dyal - I can probably check when I get home. I just picked up some noodles in the oriental section. They said stir fry noodles. Were yellow, not like rice noodles. Only took 3 minutes to cook in boiling water.

beercuer - I've always loved those mini cobs, as well.

scorched - yeah, bourbon doesn't really go with stir fry, but its what I had and what I felt like drinking at the time. What are ya gonna do? Shrug.
