Genuine hand hammered wok from the peoples republic of China

Postby Mad Howler » Sat Jun 15, 2013 8:23 pm

It has been sometime since I pulled this wok out,
It is funny that back in the late 80's this was some kind of 'exotic' infomercial purchase.
My how easily we are seduced by the race to legal, yet, competition of questionable ethics.

Any hew, the following method to prepare Pad Thai is fantastic.
I recommend backing off on the quantity of fish sauce, use 2/3 to 1/2 of the recommended amount:

"hand-hammered" in the title will spare us the specter of a genuine hand, pulped beyond recognition. (Bleh.)

But I do loves me some phad thai with fishy sauce. Ahyeh.

Nope, not trying to gross you out.
That is what it was billed as-
"Genuine hand hammered wok from the peoples republic of China"

It came in handy with regard to prep'n the pad thai.
I do not often find a wok more useful than other kitchen implements, but in this case it was perfectly suited.

Ah yes. I see your point.

Ah fennel, you are so spicy.
If you are looking to be spoonfed by the likes of this howler,
You will find, as you suggest, dissatisfaction.
