I picked up a nice authentic steel wok online for about $30.
I've done fried rice many times and would give some comments.
- It's much better with day old rice, opposed to recently cooked rice.
- Right before you toss in the rice and everything else throw in an egg or two.
- A dash of sesame oil is also adds a nice nutty flavor.
- Sesame seeds and scallions to top it off.
I've generally always used frozen veggies for fried rice, never had a problem with them. I forget who, but someone makes a good frozen stir fry bag, with onions and peppers.
