I'm a huge fan of fried rice; I like it tasty and light made in a WOK. I found this recipe on line and tossed away the one I used for years. I want to share it here and give credit to the guy who invented it, Bravo Zulu to David J. Stewart.
I suggest using a quality electric WOK with a setting as high as 14. You need the heat and is a great convenience for cooking many things. My wife Norma has made great fried steaks and excellent breakfast pancakes.
In a wok, heat peanut oil over high-heat until just before smoking (oil will shimmer). For fried rice I set the heat knob to 12 (14 is the hottest).
Add onions and garlic and sauté. Once onions appear transparent (cooked), break the egg right into wok and gently scramble with spatula (it doesn't have to be scrambled much).
