Rainbow Fried Rice

"This recipe is very much like the one my father used for his basic fried rice, served to thousands who came to our Chinese restaurants," Fong-Torres says. To keep the rice texture firm in the finished dish, Fong-Torres rinses the cold cooked rice and drains it well before adding it to the stir-fry. For variety, substitute chicken or shrimp for the pork.
