This recipe comes from Cooking Light, September 2005 and is without a doubt the best fried rice I have ever tasted. Not only great tasting but very easy to make as well. I have modified the original recipe slightly to reflect our preferences for oil, meat, veggies etc. The original recipe calls for shredded lettuce as an ingredient however I have never tried it this way. I will list it as an optional ingredient. The sesame oil is the secret ingredient as far as I am concerned!! Don't be shy, give it a try!!
