Be careful if you are going to use crisco for stir frying (see above post), this could turn into flames. A long time ago something like this happened to me, I cant remember if it was stir frying or some other type...Anyone else have a problem w/ crisco?

JP - If you're referring to my post, I said 'Crisco oil'; in any case, I fry chicken in melted solid Crisco, and have never had a flame problem.

Chinese fried rice... missing something

I think the start of this thread sounded good to me. Having said that, I believe there are as many recipes for Chinese fried rice as there are people who make it. It's a good recipe for using leftovers. So, whatever you have in the fridge (that's still edible and doesn't have mold growing on it) is game for fried rice. Cut up, stir it, put some seasoning you like on it, and voila, you've got Chinese fried rice. Bon appetit!

Try cooking onion until it is heavily caramelized, like a fried shallot. Then when you cook your egg, do it in a pancake type omelet (very thin) and shred, instead of dumping the raw egg on the rice.
And something done in Chinese restaurants, but not really advisable to do in the home kitchen is to flame the wok. I have watched them tilt the woks until the oil catches the flame, then the wok flames up and then dies down. I have never tried this of course, because I don't feel like burning my house down.

Are you possibly thinking of MSG?

The chinese use salt pretty sparingly. Soy sauce is used more often than salt to season food.
