For this recipe you will need:

½ cup onion, diced
½ cup red bell pepper, diced
¾ cup mushrooms, thickly sliced
2 cloves of garlic
2 eggs
3 cups cooked (preferably day-old) white rice
¼ cup soy sauce
¼ olive oil

Step 1: The right temperature and oil

The most important thing to remember is that fried rice needs to be cooked at high temperatures. To test the temperature, heat up the frying pan until water drops dance across and then evaporate after a couple seconds. Cast iron is always better as it distributes heat evenly across the surface. 

Use any oil that allows to cook at a higher burning point, since you will be cooking at high temperatures. Start with two tablespoons of oil.
it's very easy to make! I think i can make it if I want to save time~thank you for posting!
Will the rice be <em>al dente</em>? If I follow your recipe exactly how it is written here, the rice will not have enough time to cook.<br> Is that the intention?
