What Makes A Great Stir Fry?
Stir fry recipes? I thought this was a pizza blog. Well it is, and that’s what the Pizzeria Pronto® Outdoor Pizza Oven and Pizzaque were originally made for - but we also found they can be used to make amazing stir-fry. The Pizza Oven Wok Kit is an inexpensive way to expand the capabilities of your pizza oven! You may be asking yourself, why we would make a kit for converting the pizza oven into a wok burner?
We have talked a lot about the high heat that the pronto produces and its ability to replicate authentic flavors that would be found in a wood-fired oven. That intense heat is also needed when stir frying. The burner in our oven has a whopping 15,000 BTUs or in layman’s terms, our oven has a very powerful burner. You can preheat the wok until it starts smoking in less than 30 seconds. All you have to do is remove the lid from your oven and you are ready to cook an amazing stir fry on your outdoor oven! So let’s all say goodbye to mushy stir-fry vegetables and soggy noodles and hello to a meal that is fresher than those to-go orders you have been getting.
Tangerine Beef Recipe
2/3 lbs flank, skirt, or butchers steak sliced across the grain
1 tablespoon of sugar
2 tablespoons of soy sauce
½ tablespoon of brown sugar
3 green onions white and pale green part cut into 1-inch pieces and greens sliced thin and kept separate
Peel the tangerine trying to keep the peel in large pieces. Remove as much of the white from the peel as possible. This can be done by using a sharp knife cutting just below the white or you can use a butter knife to scrape it off. Once white has been removed slice into thin slices. Juice the tangerine flesh and add the soy sauce and brown sugar to it. Heat the wok on low and add the tangerine peel, sugar and ¼ cup of water. Cook until the liquid has evaporated but the sugars haven’t caramelized. Remove the peals from the wok and set aside. Clean the wok by adding some water to it and wiping clean with some paper towels. Heat the wok on high until it begins to smoke and add some vegetable oil. Add the sliced beef and let it sit for one minute without moving or until it begins to get some color. Add the whites of the green onion and cook for about another minute tossing a couple of times. Add the tangerine peel and the juice mixture and cook until liquid is thick and syrupy. Transfer to a bowl and garnish with the green onion tops.
Szechuan Green Beans
1 lb of green beans
3 cloves of garlic minced
1 tablespoon of julienned ginger
2 tablespoons of soy sauce
1 tablespoon of ground Szechuan peppercorns (can be replaced with 1 tablespoon of 5 spice)
5 small dried chili seeds removed and cut into rings
Heat the wok on high until it begins to smoke and add a little bit of vegetable oil immediately followed by half the green beans. Allow mixture to sit for about a minute or until the beans get a little color and then give it a toss and allow to keep cooking until they are blistered. Remove the beans from the wok and set aside. Repeat this process with the rest of the beans. When the second set of beans are cooked and removed from the wok turn heat down to medium-low and add a little bit of oil and the ginger and garlic. Cook them 15 seconds and add the Szechuan peppercorns and chilies, cook for 5 seconds before adding the soy sauce. Add the beans back to the pan and cook tossing constantly until the soy sauce has reduced to almost nothing. Transfer beans to a bowl or plate and serve.
