Lets make some chicken fried rice.
>>
>>12170460
1) why is the seasoning on your wok fucked up?
2) why is there no aromatics in your wok before the chicken went in?
3) why does the heat appear to be nowhere near hot enough?
4) why are you posting even though you are making these mistakes?

>>12170541
there's no need to, since you would get plenty of seasoning from the armomatics you're supposed to put in the wok first, like doubanjiang for example.

also, wet meat won't brown properly, so if you did marinade it you'd have to wipe it off before you cooked it. That's no biggie for a large cut of meat, but it's a hassle for diced meat.

looks good to me, better than most of the cooking on this board

>>12170628
It's really good. It gets better everytime i make it. I would be consider this ready for serving to guests. Rice could have been a bit drier though. I have another bag of rice in the fridge that i will give another 24 hours to desiccate.

>>12170632
Peas are actually my favorite veggy specifically because of their texture. Brocolli was actually a good addition. I wasn't sure if it would work. Next time i will do all three and see what happens. This is why i like making fried rice. There are a million variable to try. Plus it helps season my wok which is only a few weeks old so it needs to be used a lot until its well seasoned.

True but I'm trying to learn how to do it the "traditional" way. It also helos me see how well the seasoning on my wok is coming along. This is the first times the eggs didn't stick at all.

>>12170610

Obviously don't know how it tasted, but some carrot would really help the appearance and give you a bit of sweetness.

Also: heat your burner as hot as you can. The chinamen have these big fucking jet engine things they use to heat their woks.
>>
>>12170794
True but I'm not as skilled as they are yet. I'm still very new to asian style cooking. Each time i make fried rice i crank the heat up higher. At first the rice was burning and sticking because the seasoning wasn't good enough yet and i hadn't learned to use enough oil. Now that I'm getting the hang of it I'm turning up the heat higher and higher. Tomorrow I'll make it again but with peas, broccoli, green onion and carrot. I like bean sprouts in my fried rice too but mine went bad so i have to head to the asian store for more.
>>
>>12170834
Thanks for being honest as cooking is a learning process.

I think you have it right by having your heat up high for "asian style cooking" like stir fry, but you might be using the wrong type of oil or maybe not enough of it. Different kinds of oil burn off and become ineffective at certain temperatures, so you can't really use virgin olive oil for stir fry. It took me a while and a lot of burned, shitty dishes to learn that. You also have to consider that your kitchen stove top doesn't heat up as high as your ching chong flame grill, so there's that as well.
>>
>>12171071
Nah I use peanut oil in the wok. While I’m sure my stove doesn’t get as hot as Asians would use for a wok it’s still a flame thrower when you take the dial to six or higher.
>>
>>12171124
have you ever tried sesame seed oil? To me it always adds a nice asian taste to my meals
>>
>>12171162
Sesame oil is great as a seasoning, but a dish cooked solely in it is going to be overpowering. A couple dashes in your peanut or other neutral cooking oil is GOAT though.
>>
>>12170581
White seasoning: balance of flavor and aromatics that compliment the dish without overpowering it

Non white seasoning: HOT SAUCE NIQQA DIS SOUL FOOD. Ling Ling prease put arr bag of sart in. I marinade my rancid meat to disguise the taste pls show vagene

>>12170610
nice risotto
>>
>>12171162
I haven’t tried it but since there is no generic store brand of it at the grocery store it’s relatively expensive. I’ll pick one up next time just to try it out.
>>
>>12171162
>>12171187
lol agreed, sesame oil can definitely be overpowering.

I once found a broken xbox when I was a kid that I took apart. I don't know what the fuck they spilled to break it, but I think they were Korean and it was definitely sesame based and two hours of goo gone and Q tips resolved it.

Is there a popular asian, sticky sesame seed drink that I'm not aware of? Because I'd love to know what the fuck that was lol.
>>
>>12170610
Looks tasty
>>
>>12171162
Two comments:
1) sesame seed oil is for finishing, not for cooking with. It's like EVOO. It has a very low smoke point. If you want to use it, add it at the end of cooking. Don't use it to cook with.

2) Sesame oil is pretty much unheard of in Chinese dishes. It's a Korean thing. If you like it, use it, but it's certainly not a traditional ingredient in fried rice.
>>
>>12171221
No idea if there's a drink like that, but kids love putting stuff like peanut butter and whatnot in disk drives for some reason. I wouldn't be surprised if some little Korean kid found a jar of bean paste on a low shelf and decided to jailbreak dad's xbox with that shit.

As a side note, I found a cool article on staples for a Korean pantry if anyone is interested.

I think you may be confusing two different things.

REFINED sesame oil has a high smoke point. It's also virtually unheard of and hard to find in the west, and it has no flavor either. when people are talking about the "flavor of sesame oil in asian dishes" they are using pic related. Roasted sesame oil. It has a low smoke point.

Not really. The number of posters here is pretty small, and I stick out since I don't post pepes or wojaks, my grammar isn't absmal, my punctuation is usually correct, and I know what I'm talking about. It doesnt surprise me one bit that you identified me. I stick out here.

>the first thing you learn after they teach you everything about a 'creative' trade is that now that you know the rules go throw them out the window.
That sounds perfectly reasonable.
But you don't come across as having learned the basics yet. You can't explain the logic or reasoning behind your method, so I don't think you have any knowledge at all. I think you suck ass at cooking and are buttmad that you're being called out on it.

I'll gladly STFU if you simply explain the thought process behind your method, but just like last time you can't do that. You just keep repeating yourself.

So once again, either explain why your method works better and why we should listen to you instead of centruies of tradition, or STFU. Experts can break the rules all they want, but you don't seem to be one.

>>
>>12174001
Wow what a convincing argument. There has been no discernible difference between when I’ve used medium heat or when I’ve used high heat other than cooking time. Everything tastes and looks exactly the same which explains why a jet engine wok burner doesn’t magically make better rice and stir fry than a regular stove.
>>

That's because you don't know shit about cooking you fucking retard.
>>
>>12173995
Honestly you're asking me to explain a lot of food chemistry, which I'm very happy to do if you're actually interested, but not if this is just an internet fight. Do you know about, for example, the specific heat capacity and enthalpy of vaporization of water, the Leidenfrost effect or the Coulomb force?
>>
>>12174024
Another elegantly delivered point that forces me to take you seriously

>>12174032
I would actually be interested in hearing about how electromagnetism plays a role in cooking.
>>
>>12174057
I don't give a shit if you take me seriously. I'm just calling you cooking retarded because that's what you are.
>>
>>12174071
>I'm just calling you cooking retarded because that's what you are.
The irony here is palpable.
>>
>>12174057
Alright, so I'm guessing you know about the >Maillard reaction because it's practically a meme here. Two of the many results of the reaction are the production of water, and proteins in the food denaturing. Denaturing is the result of intra-molecular bonds being broken, which leaves the protein in a higher energy state. In order to return to a lower energy state, the protein will tend reform those bonds with any available coreactant.

You want the protein to bond with other molecules from the food, because that's where you get interesting Maillard results, and you don't want it to bond with the pan, because that's where you get sticking. The strength of this interaction is governed by Coulomb's law. The water that's produced is critical here, liquid water is a conductive solvent, whereas water vapor is not. You need enough energy to vaporize the water produced before the surfaces get a chance to come into contact. If you've ever seen a droplet of water dance around a pan (the Leidenfrost effect), that illustrates the qualitative difference between a hot pan and a pan that's hot enough to stir fry.

This takes far more heat than you expect, because water has an enormous enthalpy of vaporization, which is the extra energy you need to add to go from boiling point to actually gas. It takes one calorie to heat one gram of water by one ˚C. It takes _540_ calories to turn one gram of 100˚C water into gas. Having the ability to do that to the amount of water that's produced by your food is what makes the difference between a domestic cooker and a commercial wok stove.
>>
>>12174123
Sure but you don’t need temps high enough to get the leidenfrost effect to get the Maillard reaction which happens above 350f. It might help things not to stick better and reduce the time it takes to accomplish the Maillard reaction but it’s not actually contributing the the flavor. Again while having that jet engine wok burner makes things faster it doesn’t make them necessarily better and it’s why I can’t taste any difference between my rice and the rice from the Chinese restaurant down the street who has one.
>>
>>12171448
you're supposed to use old cooked rice for fried rice retard
>>
>>12170596
Why the sugar?
>>
>>12174143
Two things: Liquid water cannot go above 100˚C at sea level, so even with one of those jet engines, you're not going to get any browning if the food is resting on a layer of water. Cooking in general and the Maillard reaction is not a simple linear process, different things occur at higher temperatures. As an extreme example, you don't get the same result heating a steak at 180˚C for ten minutes as you do heating it at 400˚C for two minutes.

No sorry. I think ill cook some more rice today and cut the water by 25% and see what happens.
>>
>>12175543
Well I probably wouldn't have been able to tell much from a photo anyway, are you already cooking with less water than usual? I have a sneaking suspicion you might want to do the opposite. The starch in the rice is going through three stages, crystalline, gelatinized, and recrystallized (as it cools). The trick is that it recrystallizes into a different, stronger structure which resists further cooking. Any of the original form left in your rice might be cooking in the wok and making the rice softer than you want.
>>
>>12175683
I just use the recommended amount for this rice which is a 2 cups water to 1 cup rice. Its just cheap store brand white rice.

I can't find dark soy sauce anywhere unfortunately. Been to half a dozen stores and no one has it. There's a chinese grocery store that I'm certain has it but everything is in chinese and I'm too intimidated by the mean looking chinese lady that runs it to ask for her help.

no anon thats deep frying.....but i guess you americans deep fry everything so its understandable that you'd just equate it as the same thing.
>>
>>12175960
Well yes, that would be the reason I use it in some dishes. I wouldn't just use it because "I think I like my food to look darker tooday"

Colour affects your perception of taste.
>>
>>12176004
Not to the degree you add ingredients just for the colour. That's retarded, and I think you could be too.

Chinese people do, or in Indian cooking turmeric is basically there for the colour in some dishes. Probably the majority of manufactured food contains dye, for example caramel e150 in coke, because people think it doesn't taste as sweet if it's not brown. Colour also helps you distinguish tastes, in tests where the colour of food and drink has been changed people are worse at identifying the flavour. It also just makes food look better, which affects your appetite and enjoyment.

Appearance is a perfectly reasonable goal. Imagine if all your food was the exact same shade of dull beige.

I'm intrigued by the dual oil thing @1:00
>>
>>12176579
I think it’s because of how hot this kinds of works get. The first oil is lower quality and kind of creates a new now stick layer which is nearly instantly polymerized by that jet engine burner and the second oil is a higher grade to actually coat the food itself.

>>12176422
You've got to an extreme, I'm aware of everything you said already, the psychology is interesting, but in this conversation all of that was unnecessary and far fetched.

Just making a quick snack of fried rice at home doesn't warrant fucking colour manipulation. You can eat a stew of brown slop with potato all mixed in a brown and enjoy it informing of the TV. Stop being pretentious.

>I would prefer to add some dark soy sauce to give the rice a bit of a darker look.
Why wouldn't you make an effortless substitution if it's something you personally enjoy? Do you deliberately avoid doing things you like in case it makes you look pretentious to a non-existent audience?
>>
>>12176665
You are comparing putting soy sauce on white rice to a brown stew. Chinese don't use table salt. They use soy sauce for salt. Get a passport and travel to a few countries before spouting bollocks.

Wow I haven't spoken to people with this kind of shockingly low intelligence in a while.

Soy sauce adds flavour, key word being flavour. I'm not adding a something to a dish I'm cooking to give it a colour I feel like seeing when it adds something that will totally change the dish. I have no idea how you degenerates think of colour before how something tastes when deciding which ingredients go well.
>>
>>12170610
looks like it tastes like when people at home try and make fried rice. Which is to say, rice with some chicken and vegetables in it

Looks greasy as fuck. Why use a wok? Your stove is obviously not nearly powerful enough to use it effectively. Also that wok looks nasty.
Did you use refrigerated rice? Any chicken stock, clam juice, soy sauce or worchestershire sauce?
I give it a 2/10.

The egg is supposed to coat the rice to make it more juicy.
You cooked the egg separately!
That's a big FAIL!
>>
>>12173995
Sears the food instead of steams it. You were not cooking at medium high heat, you were cooking at medium low (if it were a professional cook's stove). This picture is of steamed mushrooms that were put in a cold pan and cooked over medium-low.

These mushrooms were put in a hot pan and cooked over medium-high. The taste and texture is very different.

Alright, anon, I've cooked in a wok professionally for 4 years, so I'm just gonna throw my recipe out there whether you like it or not.

>crack an egg in once aromatics are done
>sauce can just be a simple bit of oyster+soy sauce or you can make your own fancy one (I'll give the recipe if you ask)
>toss is day old rice, jasmine is best
I've cooked Chinese and Thai, kinda split on which I like better. Your stovetop isnt gonna compare to a real burner though, you'd probably be better off cooking in a different sort of pan. Also, season the wok
>>
>>12182693

>idk famalam, very starchy, like you didnt rinse the rice or use old cooked rice.
>I don't know, person who is not related to me but with whom I feel a familial bond due to our shared usage of this website, it seems to be in excess of starch, as if you did not rinse the rice before it was cooked, or as if you used fresh rice instead of old, cooked rice.

Not really. Take your fresh cooked rice and spread it in an even layer over some parchment paper or something. Let the steam release and cool down for a bit. You're good to go and get a better product, if you're other technique/s correct.

You are right. I do feel like you used too much product for the amount of heat you had. Can't really say because I can't taste it. Looks good though.
The cunts in this and every other thread like this nit picking are all theory and no practice. They could pass the written chef test, but not the performance test. Theory is good and all, but practice is more important for a trade skill.
Last wok I had I took to work where I had a 60,000 BTU range to season it. Was pretty easy. But now I have a glass top at home so I just use a large non-stick pan. Same thing, just don't overload the pan.

Nonsense.

High heat is essential for carmelizing the naturally occurring sugars in the food, as well as causing the malliard reaction. Claiming that high heat serves no real purpose is just as stupid as claiming that a grilled steak is no different from stew meat.

Educate yourself. I'd start with looking up the terms "bao" and "wok hei". The section in Modernist Cuisine on wok cooking explains the science behind it if you like that kind of thing.
