  • stir frying oil ?

    I have never stir fried, but based on the high heat for good stir fry, what oil is safe at those temps? to me , olive oil smells when very hot, what is recommended.

    Coconut oil works great. Olive oil is not meant for use at high temps.

      Coconut oil is great, and probably ethnically sound. I also use goose fat and beef dripping.

      Yes, cold-pressed oils are for salads - not great for cooking. Industrially produced seed and veggie oils are just awful and not worth eating (but you know that already). Animals fats are good - beef dripping rarely has a "beefy" flavour, but that would be good, too, as would lard.

      If you'd like to read more about fats and what happens when you heat them, google the "Rancimat Analysis".

      If this is the first time you've tried stir-frying, get yourself organised first ...

      Prepare all the things you're going to cook in order of how long they need to be cooked. Also, don't be scared of cooking one thing in the pan, like meat, then removing it, cooking everything else and chucking the meat back in at the end to re-heat.

      Stir-fry should be natural ... for people who hate cooking, stir frying should give even them a smile. Have fun.

          Cool! Flash frying lean meat and veggies is dead simple ... the fun and the joy is getting it all in the right order and making something sublime. Glad it worked out for you.

              Good work ... as I said above, flash fry some good meat off fish, set it aside, then cook the veggies and drop the meat back in at the end.

              You're on your way now ...

              Do check out Beef Dripping or Goose Fat. Both are really good for this.

                For stir fry I use Coconut oil and maybe sometimes a little bit of butter.

                  Butter? Pah! You'll get jumped all over for that! I jest ... naturally. I happily use butter for high-heat cooking. Why? Sometimes because I don't have anything else ... and it tastes good, with a clever flick of the pan which stops it burning.
