Crazy Cowboy wok recipe - Gonzo Wok Fry

Gonzo wok fry
(Serves 4) 

  • Peanut oil 
  • Mirin 
  • Soy sauce 
  • Lime juice 
  • Sesame oil 
(quantities of all five of these to your own taste)
  • 4 or 5 spring onions, sliced on the diagonal 
  • 3 cloves garlic, thinly sliced 
  • 1 punnet mushrooms 
  • 1 x 3 cm piece fresh ginger, peeled and finely sliced 
  • 6 or 7 courgettes, washed, dried and sliced into slim rounds 
  • About 10 or 12 spinach leaves 
  • Soba noodles (judge the quantity as you would how much pasta to make per serving – you can’t measure this) 
  • 1 or 2 chicken fillets per serving, depending on how many pirates are coming round 
  • 1 red chili, finely chopped 
Once heated, throw in some garlic sliced into thin flakes and spring onions sliced on the diagonal like they do in Asian restaurants. When softened but the spring onions are still bright green, remove and keep aside. 
Throw in the ginger and toss it around for a couple of minutes, then add the courgettes, sliced, and stir-fry until soft but not discolored. 
Add the mirin, soy, a little lime juice and a splash of sesame oil, toss for a minute, and set aside. 
Add a little more peanut oil to the wok if necessary and when it’s hot, add the sliced mushrooms (any kind you like) and stir constantly until they’re nutty brown. 
If they release their liquids, add more of the wet condiments to your taste, continue cooking until it’s reduced to something a little syrupy, and set aside. 
Before cooking the spinach, cut the green away from the white stems, and discard the latter – they’re what give spinach a bitter taste. If a restaurant serves you spinach that includes the white, make a fuss. It means the chef should either be fired or shot. Unforgivable. 
Shred the cleaned spinach and stir-fry until wilted with the red chili, finely chopped, and set aside. Now cook the chicken fillets, cut into thin strips, in batches. 
Cook the soba noodles (from an Asian shop or your supermarket) by immersing in boiling water. Stir immediately to separate the noodles. Boil for 6 minutes. Rinse under cold running water and drain in a colander. 
Toss the cooked and drained soba noodles in the wok, then add all the other ingredients, toss through using two wooden spoons, and serve.
