"I love to cook, but have searched for many years for an "authentic tasting" fried rice to make at home. This was the ticket! It was crunchy, delicious, and tasted like the real thing. It was a hit with the entire family. I served it with spring rolls, fresh fruit and of course, the unusual twist, "the lettuce" ; which when all put together yielded a yummy and filling dinner. Thanks for a new family fav Judy!"

"Thought the use of shredded lettuce was weird but this was very good. Will make it again and it is a great use for leftover pork roast!"

"I used whole wheat rice for it's nutritional value and substituted chicken for the pork. Very good!"

"I also used sesame oil in place of canola. I cooked the pork with sesame oil as well. I think this really adds to the Asian flavor which would not be so bold with canola."
