    Cooking with Sesame oil

    Ate some stir fry veggies the other evening that were excellent...crispy with a smoky flavor like they had come off a grill or smoker. The waiter said they were prepared with Sesame oil, ginger and garlic. Sesame oil is new to me; just wondered if anyone had experience with it. I bought some and plan to experiment with it. Any testimonials out there?
    Thanks,
    Dennis

    I have been cooking with it for many years. It is the first thing to hit the pan when I do stir fry which is quite often. I like to put real garlic oil in with it for cooking the meat part of the stir fry. I use ginger powder, teriyaki and soy sauce also in the mix. I also will put in some of the stir fry sauces that can behad at the gourmet Chinese section of most markets. House of Tsao is one such sauce. Yummmm!

    I've used sesame oil for many years, but just as a flavor additive and not as the main oil for stir frying. I think that it has a very strong flavor and I will just add a dash or two near the end of cooking. I'll use EVOO, peanut or corn oil or other light oil for the main stir fry.

    If I am stir frying, I prefer fresh herbs such as garlic and ginger and only use powdered or dried if fresh is not available. To me, there is a night and day difference between powdered ginger and fresh ginger. If you don't use all your ginger root over a period of time, you can freeze it so it won't dry out or mold.

    Good to experiment with food and cooking.

    Just my 2 cents.

    my wife used to use Crisco and if and when we had it-nice white hog lard. nothing any better in my personal opinion. now she uses (jeez-i just can't think of the word thats on the bottle)

    as far as stir fry stuff here-none--i have ate it once--my one friend who i met while trucking, had me to his house, and he actually made it for me-it wasn't to bad-i guess. i told him it was good , so i wouldn't hurt his feelings then--but he has since passed on, so i can now say how i liked it -or not.

    Too many vegetables and not enough dead animal for some people! It is a matter of personal taste. I would rather eat stir fry than Sheetz's devil biscuits!

    Great responses, guys! Thanks! I'm contemplating maybe experimenting with Sesame oil in some of my grilled or smoked meats. They're pretty good as they are, but who knows. Having worked in a research lab for 16 years, I still kinda like to experiment...I just don't keep all those tiresome old records that I did then.
