Notes

  • If you are cooking this recipe also in a wok, make sure to heat it up before adding any ingredients. Once the wok is hot, you can turn back the heat to medium, but ALWAYS stir continuously.
  • You need to thaw the frozen spinach. However, we buy frozen spinach that is packed in ice cube sizes. In that case, you can toss the frozen spinach cubes into the wok and thaw them while cooking.
