What is this cooking technique called?

Is there a term for cooking thinly sliced vegetables over high heat in a flat skillet, stirring often, with no fat or liquid at all? I don't think the word I want is grilling (there's no grill, although the results are similar) or searing (since the vegetables are being cooked all the way through). [more inside]

Can you make a warped cast-iron skillet perfectly flat again?

Speaking of cast-iron skillets, I have two, and they worked brilliantly on a gas stove. But now that I have a flat-topped glass stove, they work less well because they're not perfectly flat. One is a bit convexly rounded on the outside, so some of it gets hotter than the rest; the other is concave on the outer bottom and sort of mounded on the inner bottom, so that oil pools around the edges, around the mound, if you can picture that. Both pans work great for baking stuff like cornbread, but not so good for steaks or such. So I've got two pans I love but now understand why I could buy them cheap at thrift shops. Question: Is there any way to make the bottoms of these pans perfectly flat again so they'll cook well?

Did I burn out this cast-iron skillet?

Left my stove burner on LOW for more than 24 hours; my roommate's cast-iron skillet was on it. Explosion narrowly averted, but the cast-iron skillet now powerfully smells metallic when it's heated. [more inside]

Black is beautiful

I'm re-seasoning my workhorse Lodge 12" cast-iron skillet. I've seasoned pans before to pretty good results, but I want perfection. What kind of oil/fat is going to give me the hardest, strongest, blackest finish, and what temperature is going to get me there?

Cooking the iron skillet

I decided to store my cast iron skillet inside the oven, even when I am using the oven. I figure it's acting like a heat stone, keeping the oven temp stable. Is this bad for the skillet?
