"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!"

"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."

"Easy and good. I substituted broccoli for the peas and used sesame oil instead of canola to boost the asian flavor. A great use for leftover pork. I would definitely make this recipe again."

"Quick and easy! Make it even easier with bagged, pre-shredded lettuce. I used only 2 cups of rice and replaced the garlic powder with 1 fresh clove, minced."
