“Wok cooking is very particular. So, use the hot-test burner possible, and let the wok heat on high for five minutes. This will cook the ingredients very fast without lowering the temperature of the wok, allowing your vegetables to come out crispier and fresher tasting instead of slow simmered and mushy. In fact, it actually takes more time to prep this dish than to cook! For the peanut butter, be sure to use one that doesn’t have added sugar or corn syrup. And, I typically use pork that’s already cooked, but any meat or protein will work well, cooked or un-cooked. Togarashi is typically used as a condiment, but in this dish, I season the vegetables with it while they’re cooking. Togarashi blends nicely with this dish with it’s nutty flavors from the sesame and hemp seeds; and the nori gives it that rich brine-y taste, and the orange peel comes through and balances everything out.“
