    I'm speaking from my own personal experience of doing this using a cast-iron wok. I suppose the result is the same whatever the utensil is used. To prevent sticking, the trick is to heat the pan/wok until it is hot, i.e. when the pan turns slightly white and starts smoking. Sticking always occurs whenever the temperature of the pot is not hot enough;only then cooking oil is added. Again,the oil has to be hot enough before adding the meat. This happens when the oil starts smoking;only then the meat is added. This method applies to frying or searing of other foodstuff that has a tendency to stick, such as noodles or eggs.Try it!

    you could also try a great non stick pan. We've discovered the beauty of the Orgreenic pans and you can sear anything in them without sticking!

      I've seen the infomercial for those pans. I'm always skeptical of products that are marketed using infomercials so I am glad to hear that someone confirms they really do work.
