Tonight I wanted to try out my new toy, A Kamado Joe cast iron Wok.  I liked its shallow shape with a nice gentle slope to push food onto as it neared completion.  It arrived nicely pre-seasoned and ready for use after a quick cleaning.  Seasoned rice was prepared in a ceramic on cast iron pot in advance.  Beef strips were placed in a marinade about 2 hours prior to the cooking.  The marinade was basic, just brown sugar, a bit of soy sauce, some sea salt, black pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, some Szechuan rub and water.  Half of an onion was diced, and some mixed vegetables were prepared in advance.  The Big Joe was loaded with fresh charcoal and lit in 5 places with the lower vent was opened about 1 inch.  The lid was left open for the fire to get going into a full raging roll.  The X-Rack was put in place.  A couple tablespoons of canola oil was put into the wok and lightly smeared across all the surface.  As the wok got up to temperature the finely diced onions were added to the wok to caramelize.  As the onions neared completion, they were pushed to the side (away from the central sweet spot) and the marinated beef was placed in the center of the wok.  Once the beef was nearly done, the vegetables were added along with a bit of the marinade to lightly steam them.  A thick sweet savory glaze was added to the entire dish after the food was done, and gently folded until all of it was well coated.    The rice was plated and a generous portion of the stir fry was ladled on top of the rice.

      4 cups cauliflower rice (make from whole cauliflower in food processor)
      8 oz diced chicken breast (or your favorite meat/protein) tossed in 1 tsp oil
      1 cup fresh or frozen green peas
      1 cup diced carrots
      1 cup diced onion
      2 cloves minced garlic
      1 tablespoon sesame oil
      2-3 tablespoons soy sauce
      2 beaten eggs
      Preheat your Kamado Joe to about 400 degrees in the dome.  Place the cast iron wok on the lower position with the accessory rack and let the wok preheat with the grill.
      Brown the chicken in the wok, remove and set aside.   Add the sesame oil and saute the onions and the carrots until the carrots soften, about 5 minutes.  Add the garlic and continue stirring for about one minute.  Add the cauliflower rice and stir constantly for 5-6 minutes.  Add the peas and stir for another minute or two.  Add the chicken back to the wok and mix completely.  Push the mixture to the back of the wok and add the beaten eggs.   Cook the eggs and mix with the rice.  Add the soy sauce and stir for another minute or two.  Remove from the wok and serve hot!

      Using a Wok on a Kamado is fast & furious! If done right, you'll come out with a crisp & tasty plate. Anyone else cooking on a Wok?

      Per a previous post, I first used my new KJ wok for a beef stir on the KJ BJ and it was awesome.  Shortly after ordering the wok, I decided I needed a dome lid, so I order the Joyce Chen from Amazon ($15).  It's a little smaller than this wok would call for but works, and that wok holds such a massive amount of food, I don't think volume will be a problem.  Last night the Boss grabbed the wok and the lid and cooked some pop corn on the kitchen stove (gas).  The Boss makes the best pop corn anyhow and has been using an aluminum non-stick wok (with lid - of course) for years.  So, I can't say this pop corn taste any better,  but it was every bit as good as her other poppings, and this wok being so much larger, she didn't have to dump some during the pop.  I already know this wok won't spend much time on the shelf!
