Today is Chinese New Year and 2014 is year of the horse. To help us celebrate and cook up something a little oriental we chose a Wok from the selection at Tesco Direct. There are a fair few to choose from starting as low as just £4 upwards. You can even have it delivered to your home for a few pound too as you never know which store will have what in so I find this much easier.
I chose this Carbon Steel Wok at a very reasonable price of just £7.33
The wok has a 30cm diameter and made from strong aluminium. It boasts a classic non stick Teflon coating which is usually found on more higher priced pans.
I decided to make a chicken schzeaun which is a little like a Chinese chilli. I’m not a great cook and no idea how to cook Chinese from scratch so I bought some chicken and a jar of sauce (also from Tesco) plus some noodles and prawn crackers.
I found the wok had a fair bit of weight to it meaning it can hold a lot of food and stay sturdy. The pan heated up very quickly and the food cooked fast and was very hot when served.
The handle stayed cool throughout the cooking and when finished the wok was easy to clean using just soap and water.
My food tasted great and I think every kitchen should have a wok in there cupboards. Especially considering this one costs under £10. An absolute bargain I think.
Details of this Wok can be found at Tesco.
Wishing everyone a happy Chinese New Year.
Thanks for sharing this content. I get more informations from it. I love wok and am looking for wok reviews.
